The Southeast Coast is a blend of culture and nature-based adventures.
From the remarkable Maya Mountain Massif views to the golden sandy beaches, Placencia, Hopkins, and Dangriga are a true fisherman’s village with strong cultural pride. These eco-tourist regions feature exceptional natural amenities, a signature of pristine Belize. Plan to spend a few days in these areas, the list of must-stops on the picturesque Hummingbird Highway are countless. Visit the world’s only jaguar preserve “Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary”, or explore National Parks, such as: Mayflower Bocawina and the St. Herman’s Blue Hole. Water activities are among the best, enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, diving, saltwater fly-fishing, whale shark watching and just about any other “ing” that takes place in the water.
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 weekend 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. 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. Make it here, you won’t be disappointed!
