I spend all day helping people plan their Belize vacation, and I love telling people about Punta Gorda, the southernmost town in Belize. They are still largely “undiscovered”, and it feels like you have ventured back 30 years before Belize was a well-known international travel destination.
Located right in downtown Punta Gorda you will find one of the best places to say in the area, the Coral House Inn. This tasteful B&B is a wonderful place to base out of. They have only 4 rooms, so they fill quickly. Each room has air-conditioning, wifi, television, and a private bath. Here you will feel right at home when you return after a full day of exploring. And there is a lot to do! Ruins, caves, jungle rivers, and deserted islands are all just a few miles from downtown.
The owners of the Coral House Inn are a good resource for planning daily activities. The home is located right on the sea, but there is no beach. They have a very nice lap pool and common area. Rates start at $90/night. They also manage a cottage just down the coast. The cottage has a full kitchen and at $125/night is a screaming deal. Contact them at coralhouseinn.com.
