Birding Site Guide

Some direct buses leave Belize City for Punta Gorda (PG) but other times you have to change at Dangriga. PG can also be reached by boat from Puerto Barrios in Guatemala. PG is a very laid back town and I stayed at the Nature's Way Guest House which has basic rooms at reasonable prices. There are a few places to eat in town. Some places are just peoples houses that sell food but there is a nice ice cream parlour in town that also has snacks. PG is on the coast and you can see a few coastal birds by walking along the front. Walking around the outside of town I saw a few common birds. The road north crosses a small river along which there are some mangroves. It seems you can rent canoes here which might be worth doing. The next site is more interesting. 34 species including 1 lifer.
