Imagine the exhilaration participating in one of the following five tours! You can make it your reality.
Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaguar Preserve
Spectacular is the best way to describe this location. Within approximately 128,000 acres lies not only an amazing jaguar haven, but the pristine rainforest, home to other animals such as ocelots, tapirs, margays and more. Oh, and don’t forget about the birds! Bird watchers are thrilled as over 300 species call the Cockscomb Basin their home. Exotic plants, waterfalls and various reptiles complete the tour.
Inland Blue Hole and Xunantunich
Xunantunich is a 130 foot high Mayan city located in the Cayo District. This stone structure is one of the many ruins sites across Belize but the only one with a staggering view of the Mopan River and the country of Guatemala. The return trip offers an opportunity for a jungle swim in the inland Blue Hole.
The ATM tour is a mesmerizing hike through Actun Tunichil Muknal, a popular Mayan burial site. For 45 minutes, visitors wade through streams, explore caves, swim in the caverns, climb rocks and carefully observe remarkable Mayan artifacts. It is awesome!
Soar through the air over breathtaking flora of the jungle and rainforest on Belize’s longest zip line. You may choose to rappel down one of three gorgeous waterfalls, each requiring a different skill level.
Get ready for a truly Belizean experience when you visit a family in the village of Hopkins. Don traditional clothing and prepare Hudut, a special dish of the Garifuna people. After your meal, learn about Garifuna style music and dance through hands-on instruction. This is the perfect way to be an active part of this inspiring culture.
