With the stories of sun, sand and sea, it’s quite easy to overlook the fact that there are well over 8,000 more square miles of beautiful Belize to explore.

Luckily for us, there are numerous proud Belizeans who share beautiful images of these ‘hidden’ gems every day. One such Belizean is the uber-talented, photographer extraordinaire Tony Rath.

The volumes we could speak of Tony…who with his lens, and experienced eye, can portray stories untold of our beloved heritage. His talents take him to unexplored regions, and his photographs show us that we’ve barely scratched the surface. We chose a few of his shots of Toledo, which reveal the beauty of Belize’s southernmost district.

He photographs from the sky, underwater, close-up, in and out and around Belize and beyond. Follow him on Facebook (and enjoy his witty commentary/captions on his photographs), on Instagram and on his website.
