Belize: Toledo and the south

Visit Us

Sometimes referred to as Belize’s ‘forgotten district’, remote Toledo is the country’s southernmost region: its rugged terrain is carpeted with pristine rainforests whose dense canopies cover caves and creeks, crystal clear swimming holes and waterfalls, and little-visited Mayan ruins. On the coastal lowlands lies the small fishing town of Punta Gorda, the region’s capital and launching pad for explorations into this off-the-beaten-track part of Belize.

Toledo’s population, though sparse, is diverse: Mopan and Kekchi Maya, Creole, Garifuna, East Indian, Mennonite and Mestizo communities have all settled here, creating a unique tapestry of culture and heritage that is fascinating to behold. Ancient Maya traditions have been brought forth to the 21st century and the most important mainstay of local industry is still the production of cacao, with Belize’s annual chocolate festival being held here every May.
