Toledo District Tours
Do you want to stay away from the most populated tourist areas while enjoying a unique holiday in Belize? The Toledo District, often called the “Forgotten District”, is less developed for tourism than other areas, making it one of the hidden gems of Belize. Filled with ancient Mayan historical sites and natural wonders, it offers the full Belize experience, without the crowds. The Toledo district oozes charm in every corner, and you are sure to fall in love with the local people and customs during your stay.
Vibrant culture, customs & natural beauty
The Toledo District is the southernmost section of Belize. Here, you will find the diverse cultures of southern Belize living side by side. This provides travellers with the perfect platform to explore the many ancient beliefs and culinary delights of each people group. Make corn tortillas in a traditional Maya home, learn the art of basket weaving, pick cacao from the tree, learn the bean-to-bar method of chocolate making, or beat traditional Creole and Garifuna drums to the rhythm of the area’s indigenous music.
From the ridges of the Maya Mountains to the sandy cayes and coral reefs of the Caribbean Sea, Southern Belize boasts stunning landscapes. Natural wonders abound as far as the eye can see. Take a boat ride up winding rivers and see crocodiles, howler monkeys and exotic birds. Snorkel the reefs and see brightly coloured fish darting between corals. Hike a forest trail and submerge into cool caves and waterfalls. Travellers in the south can find themselves lost in adventure with no one else around. Stroll peacefully amongst Maya ruins, relax on a deserted beach, or swim alone in a freshwater pool.
