THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A GREAT VACATION.

Punta Gorda is the gateway to everything from off-shore fishing, to river trips, as well as caving, birding and Maya archaeological sites. Not to mention, some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Here, Maya, Garifuna and East Indian Belizeans live harmoniously while maintaining their individual cultures.

Situated along the Caribbean Sea near the bay of Honduras with the dominant Maya Mountains in the background, Punta Gorda – locally known as “PG” – is the smallest and southernmost town in Belize.

Visit the famous street market and shop for exotic local produce, souvenirs, or drive just in time to buy the day’s fresh catch from returning fishermen.
