Belize Ultimate Adventure
8 Days / 7 Nights
For the adventurous spirit, Belize has it all. The National Protected Areas System has resulted in 45.3 percent of the national territory under protection, including marine reserves. This is ideal for flora and fauna to flourish in Belize making it ideal for our Adventure tours. Not only will you be amazed at the nearly 600 bird species and exotic wild cats Belize is home too, but did you know that the second largest reef on the planet is just offshore? Belize was also part of the Mayan empire making it a world class archeological destination with ruins and temples that transport you to another time when the Mayans were the most sophisticated civilization in the ancient Americas. Let’s not forget the myriad of rivers that transport you through majestic cave systems that will leave you breathless…right out of an Indian Jones movie.
Our multisport adventure is filled with so much to see and do and we managed to jam as much as we could into 8 days of pure excitement. Stand-up paddle boarding, Snorkeling, Trekking, Cave excursions with ancient pictographs, relics and human sacrificed remains. Unbelievable! From tracking howler monkeys to learning how to cook with Mayan families, we will do it all…. even zip-lining! Our goal is to take you away from the crowds and immerse you into the culture and nature that makes Belize one of the most exciting eco-destinations in the world.
