Toledo district

Punta Gorda is at the heart of the district of Toledo, Belize’s southernmost province and also the least populated and most pristine area of rainforest as well as home to diverse ethnic communities.

Visit one of the Mayan villages here to learn a little of Mayan culture at first hand. There are Mopan and Kekchi Maya, Garifuna, East Indians, Creoles, Hispanics and Mennonites all living in this region, making it a true cultural melting pot.

Explore these local communities and cocoa plantations, discover mysterious Mayan sites such as Lubaantun, site of the famous hoax of the Crystal Skull, explore deep caves and hike in the pristine jungle with local naturalist guides. Some of the leading organic chocolate producers source the finest fair-trade cocoa from this area.

The Cacao Festival at the end of May is set up to celebrate all things chocolate related with local chocolatiers showing off their creations, chocolate-tasting, live music and great food.

‘Greetings from Sri Lanka. This has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
