Favorite thing: Punta Gorda was the place where our boat arrived, comming from Puerto Barrios in Guatemala. It was a strange place I've to say, but almost immediately after arriving one of the locals, a Garifuna from a village further south, started talking with us. He brought us to the cheepest hotel in town and told us his live story. All very interesting to get to know that Garifuna culture of course.
Enfin besides meeting locals, there's nothing interesting in town. Its just a place to take a bus somewhere else or you might visit a Garifuna village in the neighboorhood (If they like you, you'll get a place to sleep for free, just paying your food).

Address: South Belize
