A journey to the main town of Punta Gorda is an adventure with numerous tempting stops along the way! Attractions include: ancient Maya sites, spectacular river views, the magnificent Maya Mountain Massif, and the highest concentration of preserve terrain throughout Belize! With the predominance of the Maya culture, these little communities rely on farming, including that of the cacao (the gold of the ancient Maya).
