Toledo: Nature, Culture, Adventure

The above video produced by TIDE Tours gives an excellent summary of what Toledo has to offer!

The Toledo district is the southern-most district in Belize. It has only one town – Punta Gorda, known throughout Belize simply as “PG”.  PG is on the coast, but scattered throughout the district are over 50 small rural villages.

Toledo: Nature, Culture, Adventure

There are few sandy beaches in Toledo, as it is a natural mangrove area.  However a short boat trip can take you to stunning unspoilt cayes, for great snorkelling and diving opportunities.  Inland areas boast large areas of unspoilt jungle, kept lush by the nightly rains most of the year.

Cultural Melting-Pot

See and hear all the different ethnic groups and languages of Belize. In Punta Gorda the Garifuna people are largest in numbers. However Maya, East Indian and Creole populations are also part of PG’s cultural melting pot.  Most of the villages are either Kekchi or Mopan Maya communities. But there is also one Garifuna village (Barranco), one traditional Mennonite village (Pine Hill) and a small number of East Indian and Creole communities.
