Southern Belize – An Undiscovered Jewel

Southern Belize – An Undiscovered Jewel

Southern Belize - A Mostly Undiscovered Jewel

There are many things to do in the southern region of Belize (Toledo District) – on my most recent adventure I was quite surprised to find many fun and exciting activities and very little tourists.  The main town in the Toledo District is Punta Gorda, also known as ‘PG’.

Outside of PG is a small village about 45 minutes drive called San Pedro Columbia. I visited the largest Mayan Ruins in the south – Lubaantun – there is still a lot of excavating to do, but signs and information were plentiful and guided tours are available.  On the way to the ruins, I stopped off at The Chaos Oasis – an earthship being built 1/2 a block away.  The design and architecture were amazing, and definitely worth a visit.  Also you can stop by Eladio Pop’s – a traditional Mayan Chocolate making farm and pick up some of this delectable dessert.

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. You can even try your hand at some traditional Garifuna drums and dancing at the Warasa Drum School.

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 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.

 Make it here, you won’t be disappointed!
