New birding website

I communicate with a few other people who own lodges in Belize, people I don’t really know, but I feel like I know them. One of these people is Rob Hirons, owner of a southern Belize lodge called The Lodge at Big Falls. I have visited his place briefly, it is located right on a river down near Punta Gorda. A fabulous place to spend a week or so. Rob publishes the Toledo Howler, a newsletter

My favorite Belize newsletter

I just received the newest version of The Toledo Howler, a newsletter dedicated to the promotion of Belize tourism in the southern-most district of the country, based out of Punta Gorda, Belize. It’s been a long time since I received a copy of The Howler, but I am so happy to see they are still publishing. This is always a very comprehensive and varied collection of articles put together by

Belize is divided into districts (sort of like states), and Toledo i

I spent a day there two months ago touring many of the local lodges. What a wonderful place! This is my favorite part of Belize – next to Glover’s Reef, of course ;-). It is the most remote, quaint, and picturesque p

Punta Gorda, the final frontier of Belize

I was very excited to visit Punta Gorda, Belize (known locally as “PG”) on the Tourism Board travel agent tour last week. PG is all the way south in Belize in the Toledo district, almost to Guatemala. It is still like it used to be, a remote jungle area by the sea, where many of the locals have little contact with the rest of Belize. In fact, in no other part of Belize can you visit both jungl
