What To Expect:
Belize Travel Tour Highlights
Start with a three-night stay at an exclusive boutique resort in Placencia, where you can enjoy 400 feet of private white beachfront along turquoise shores. The resort is providentially located just outside Placencia Village, and also offers a wide range of on-site activities. Go on a Monkey River Howler Tour, weaving through the mangroves as you learn about the birds, crocodiles, and of course, the howler monkeys that call the river ecosystem home. Go on a tour through the world’s only Jaguar preserve, hiking through verdant rainforests and cooling off with an enchanting swim under the rainforest’s fresh, bubbling waterfalls. Continue on to San Ignacio, where you will be transferred to a luxury eco-lodge along the banks of the Macal River. Enjoy the lodge’s glorious 365-acre private nature reserve and many activities such as horseback riding and canoeing. Then set off to tour Belize’s famous cave systems. For families with teenagers, Actun Tunich Muknal, or the ‘Cave of the Crystal Sepulcher,’ may be a great option. While a moderate level of fitness is required for this tour, the archeological rewards are well worth it. Actun Tunich Muknal is one of the most famous Mayan burial sites in Western Belize and features the skeleton of the ‘Crystal Maiden’ and a sacrificial cathedral at the end of the cave system that will fill you with wonder at the mysteries of ancient Mayan culture. For multi-generational families or families with young children, Barton Creek Cave is a less arduous adventure that allows you to explore a stunning Mayan ceremonial cave by way of canoe. After your journey through the jungle, you will make your way to the beach as you head to Ambergris Caye and two nights of luxurious accommodations in the heart of San Pedro. Go on a kaleidoscopic underwater adventure at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley, and close up this fantastic family vacation with a day of sunbathing and seaside relaxation.
