Southern Belize

The culture mecca of the Maya and Garifuna…

The traditions of the south are only part of the charm, add the scenic jungle views and island options and you have all the makings for the ultimate weekend adventure. In southern Belize the Maya, Garifuna, East Indians, and Chinese communities, live in harmony and in unity. Here, daily living requires some form of farming and tourism.

Punta Gorda serves as the gateway to a host of activities like offshore fishing, river trips, caving, bird watching and ancient Maya discoveries. Lush preserved jungles still hold visible ancient potteries among other natural wonders ripe with adventure and intrigue. Make it here, you won’t be disappointed!
