Th capital of the state of Quintana Roo, Chetumal is a typical border town--not really a place you want to spend tons of time (or any time) but it'll work if you need a decent hotel, good eats, a couple attractions, and/or a place to stock up on souvenirs at the flea market.
I have a strange affection for Chetumal. It's an odd little border city where half the people have odd British-style names (a holdover from when this was all British Honduras), and a lot of the buildings are stuck in the 60s. It's hard to believe that it's the capital of Quintana Roo state, as it's not really bursting with energy. But everything's cheap and people are nice, and it doesn't feel sleazy like most border towns. Don't miss the nifty hand-carved wood model of the old town (the Maqueta Payo Obispo)--it's in a cabin down by the bay.
While Chetumal is a lovely place to live, and the local taxi drivers will tell you so, it's not the most exciting toursit destination. If you're headed to the Belize Cayes, there's a high-speed boat that will go from here to San Pedro and then Caye Caulker. The alternative route is takign a bus to Belize City and then a water taxi from there, which takes a LOT longer.
Chetumal un rincon del mundo
