My friend and I are planning a quick tour round bits of Guatemala and Belize in the autumn. We've sketched out where we want to go, and are starting to look at logistics...

We're interested in getting from Caye Caulker down to Punta Gorda by boat. Is this even possible?
I've not found anything either way on the internet so thought I'd ask!

We're happy to do something crazy like Caye Caulker -> Belize City -> Dangriga -> Placencia -> Punta Gorda but I have no idea if most of those routes even exist.

Any advice appreciated, particularly any first hand experience!

have you checked our own TP Belize travelguide?
Some of the places you mention can only be reached by boat, but the ones to the south can also be reached by road although not sure about all of them.

The travel guide revelead that Dangriga has boat connections, which I hadn't found elsewhere, but I'm struggling for info on any potential connections from Belize City to Dangriga. And also if there's more than one boat a week from Dangriga to Punta Gorda...
We could easily do it by bus, but that's just not fun!

Maybe I need to start Googling in Spanish!

Googling in Spanish wouldn't be a giant help. Belize is an English speaking country.
