In Belize, islands are known as “cayes” (pronounced “keys”). Harvest Caye is a port of call used by many cruise lines and is an offshore island located just a few miles from the mainland.
Harvest Caye itself is very small, and there aren’t many options for cruise passengers. But there is a regular ferry service that connects Harvest Caye to the Placencia Peninsula on the mainland, one of the most popular destinations in the country where you can enjoy activities such as:
Offering plenty of thrills, this tour combines sailing through the upper canopy of the jungle along a zip line with the uniquely Belizean sport of cave tubing, floating down a lazy river aboard an inflatable inner tube.
Home to some of the last surviving jaguars in the world, the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve is an enormous wilderness area with stunning landscapes, beautiful mountains, and a wide variety of plants and animals.
The descendants of the ancient Maya that built the pyramids and palaces that dot the Belizean landscape have preserved much of their traditional way of life, including making chocolate. Cacao (the source of chocolate) is indigenous to Belize, and this tour allows you to make your own chocolate from locally sourced cacao beans.
Belize is a beautiful country with astonishingly beautiful nature everywhere you go. One of the best ways to explore this lush landscape is on horseback.
The Garifuna are an Afro-Caribbean people who have been recognized by the United Nations for their unique language, music, and dance. Hopkins Village is a Garifuna community located on the coast, regularly voted as the friendliest village in Belize.
Roam Belize is the name to trust when it comes to guided tours in Belize. If you’re coming to Harvest Caye and want to visit the sights, book your tour with Roam Belize. A representative from Roam Belize will greet you at the ferry pier in Placencia and then take you where you want to go.
Roam Belize also rents vehicles to allow visitors to explore the country at their own pace. All of Roam Belize’s vehicles are well-maintained, modern vehicles perfectly suited for Belize’s rugged terrain.
“We stopped off at Harvest Caye as part of our cruise, and we hired Roam Belize to take us around. Absolutely my favorite part of the whole trip, hands down. My wife loved the chocolate, and I had a blast doing the river tubing and zip line stuff.”
