Introducing Puerto Barrios

The country becomes even more lush, tropical and humid heading east from La Ruidosa junction toward Puerto Barrios.

Port towns have always had a reputation for being slightly dodgy, and those acting as international borders doubly so. Puerto Barrios has an edgy, somewhat sleazy feel; for foreign visitors, it’s mainly a jumping-off point for boats to Punta Gorda (Belize) or Lívingston, and you probably won’t be hanging around.
