Xunantunich / Barton Creek Departures - On Request with 4 persons minimum

The adventure begins with a scenic drive up the Western Highway to the Cayo (pronounced Ky-o) District. Xunantunich (Maya for “Maiden of the Rock”) sits just inside the Western border of Belize. Before reaching the entrance of this ancient city, your party will board a 19th century hand-cranked ferry which takes you across the Mopan River. The ruins are actually located on one of the highest plateaus in the area and it is possible to climb to the top of “El Castillo”, the largest of the temples at this site. From this vantage point, one gains a panoramic view of the Cayo District and nearby Guatemala.
After enjoying a tasty local lunch, we continue to Barton Creek Cave in Amish territory. Equipped with canoes/kayaks and high-powered lights we gently paddle into Xibalba (she-bal-ba), Maya for underworld. Stalactites and Stalagmites hang high overhead as we float past impressive calcite crystals. Our knowledgeable guides will discuss the use of this cave by the ancient Maya, while some artifacts can be seen high above the alcoves.

Altun Ha & Wildlife River Rafting Guaranteed Departures - Tues, Thurs, Sun
Minimum 4 persons

Board your tour vehicle for 45 minute drive en route to the Maya Ruins of Altun Ha (Maya for “Rock Stone Water”), where the famous Jade Head of “Kinich Ahau” was uncovered by Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum.  Altun Ha was once a major trading center linking the Maya on the Caribbean with the Central American mainland Maya. 
After a local lunch, board a river raft for wildlife viewing.  As you float downstream along the Olde Belize River, the guide will be pointing out the prolific bird life and flora & fauna. Eyes will be peeled searching for crocodiles along the riverbank, and howler monkeys in the trees above.  Manatees and dolphins are also sometimes spotted.  A rich experience. Once the logging and commercial highway of Belize, the river contrasts between small settlements and stretches where the feeling is one of remoteness, perhaps even discovery.

Lamanai & The New River Safari Guaranteed Departures - Daily
Minimum 4 persons

This is one of the most interesting tours in Belize.  After an hour’s drive up the Northern Highway, you board a riverboat at Tower Hill and head up the New River.  While traversing the many little creeks and lagoons, it is easy to encounter hawks, kites and falcons.  You may also see dainty Jacanas lightly walking on the lily pads while the crocodiles bask in the morning sunlight.  At the entrance to the New River Lagoon, the ruins of Lamanai (Maya for “Submerged Crocodile”) rise into view.  While touring this site, huge masks depicting dead rulers and gods seem to materialize out of the rainforest amid the chatter of birdlife and the haunting call of the Howler Monkeys.  Your guide will point out the Copal and Ramon trees, which were of great importance in ancient times.

Pick up time: 7:45 AM
Duration: 8.5 hours

Xunantunich & The Belize Zoo Guaranteed Departures - Wed, Sun
Minimum 4 persons

Your adventure begins as you head for the wildlife habitat known as The Belize Zoo.  The zoo was created as a sanctuary for the country’s indigenous species and is now home for an impressive array of large cats, primates, reptiles and birds.  A visit to the zoo gives you the opportunity to see Belize’s amazing wildlife in one location.  The adventure continues with a scenic drive up the Western Highway to the Cayo (pronounced Ky-o) District. Xunantunich (Maya for “Maiden of the Rock”) sits just inside the Western border of Belize.  Before reaching the entrance of this ancient city, your party will board a 19th century hand-cranked ferry which takes you across the Mopan River.  The ruins are actually located on one of the highest plateaus in the area and it is possible to climb to the top of “El Castillo”, the largest of the temples at this site.  From this vantage point, one gains a panoramic view of the Cayo District and nearby Guatemala.

Manatee Watch & Barrier Reef Snorkel Guaranteed Departures - Daily

Depart by motor boat from Belize City to the nearby Manatee breeding grounds.  You are almost certain to see one or several of these docile and protected sea mammals.  These gentle mammals are believed to be the “mermaids” many sailors talked of as they do suckle their young. Goff’s Caye is another seven miles to the east and this small island is perched right on Belize’s Great Barrier Reef, a true picture postcard tropical paradise.  Snorkel off the pristine sandy beach with your instructors for that wonderful “Cousteau Experience”, or swim in cool waters, or relax under a palm tree.  A beach picnic lunch and refreshments are served.  Snorkel equipment is included.
