Belize’s deep south – Punta Gorda and the Toledo District – sees fewer tourists than the rest of the country. Only the most intrepid of explorers venture here – for off-track caving and rainforest adventures — or the culture enthusiasts who love stepping back in time and want to experience authentic village life. But even downtown Punta Gorda — the district’s main town — makes you feel like the clock has turned back. It’s one of my favorite places in Belize, old but graceful, full of character and yet mellow. For more on Punta Gorda, read about my experiences there last year.
