What To Expect:
Belize Travel Tour Highlights
Transfer from Belize International Airport by private helicopter to an ultra-luxe boutique resort in the Cayo District, also known as the ‘Highlands of Belize,’ for a five-night stay. The first night of your stay comes complete with a private wine tasting and gourmet dinner. Spend your days exploring the area at 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 Swedish Massage in the European style spa at the hotel; then conclude the day with an exclusive dining experience in the wine cellar or outside on the stargazing terrace as you savor a delectable 5-course tasting based on a menu custom-designed for your palate. Set off once more the next day on an 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 your private island retreat by helicopter, and enjoy the beautiful beaches and ocean activities that Belize has to offer. Spend three nights in this paradise island containing only seven secluded villas, each intimately designed with a private splash pool and arranged so that guests do not come into contact with one another. Enjoy 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 with a day of relaxation and a private, remote island picnic. Then fly back to Belize City by way of helicopter and prepare for your return flight home.
