What To Expect:
Belize Travel Tour Highlights
Arrive at Belize International airport and transfer to a luxury hotel in the Cayo District, or the ‘Highlands of Belize,’ for a five-night stay. Explore Belmopan, Spanish Lookout, and key archeology sites such as Xunantunich, Chal Pech, and Caracol. Go on a horseback-riding excursion at the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich, and learn the legends and lore of the ruins in addition to their archeological history. Enjoy a private picnic lunch at Big Rock Falls and stop at the village of San Jose Succotz if you have time.
Embark on another adventure as you enjoy a spectacular visit to Actun Tunich Muknal, the ‘Cave of the Crystal Sepulcher,’ one of the most popular Mayan burial sites in Western Belize. A moderate level of fitness is required as the hike to the cave entrance itself takes about 45 minutes, but the archeological rewards are well worth it. The skeleton of the ‘Crystal Maiden’ and the sacrificial cathedral at the end of the cave system are truly unique artifacts that provide a window into the mysteries of ancient Mayan culture.
Take a day of relaxation, indulging in a couples’ spa treatment each enjoying an hour-long Thai or Essential Oils Massage at the hotel spa; then conclude the day with a private dining experience amidst romantic flowers and candles, complete with a private attendant to make this dreamy dinner absolutely perfect. Set off once more on a full day expedition to Guatemala to visit Tikal, the crown jewel of Maya archaeological sites. Tikal presents a rare opportunity to explore one of the world’s most interesting ancient cities in a relaxed, breathtaking setting.
Continue on to San Pedro in Ambergris Caye and enjoy the beautiful beaches and ocean activities that Belize has to offer. Spend three nights in this paradise, enjoying leisurely days on the beach in addition to an underwater adventure at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley. Observe a kaleidoscope of over 160 colorful species of fish along with other sea life as you explore this natural break in the barrier reef. Wrap up in San Pedro and fly back to Belize City for your return home.
