La Ruta Maya Canoe River Challenge Race
The La Ruta Maya River Challenge is a grueling, multi-day canoe race travelling a perilous river route across the country of Belize. The route runs west to east along the Macal and Belize Rivers, once the only link between beautiful San Ignacio, in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, and the bustling port of Belize City. This is a race for everyone, not just professional racers.

Held in the quiet area of Tumul K’in, Blue Creek Village, this day highlights the unique Maya culture being preserved in southern Belize.
