Marty Online   happy

Traveling in the Toledo District of southern Belize is a cultural delight thanks to the rich and colorful traditions of the native Garifuna and Mayan people. The Lodge at Big Falls has long supported sustainable local tourism initiatives and now have introduced a new cultural program called the Living Maya Experience. Designed in partnership with two families of employees at the Lodge, visitors are able to experience how traditional Maya live today and what life was like 50 years ago before the modern world encroached. Since the Maya communities in this region speak English, the level of interaction is quite high.

Can you tell me how you would arrange a trip there from San Pedro? Would it be possible to do this in one day?

Flying is quickest of course and this is should be more than one overnight, as there is so much to do in this area; even the reefs and cayes are different than up north and worth seeing. 4 nights and you're busy every day
