Detailed Description

Belize is an amalgamation of Central American jungles and the Caribbean Sea, bringing together vibrant heritage, eclectic culture, and natural wonder. Your 8-day vacation takes the entire family on a discovery tour in search of the indelible adventures the country contains. Your private transfer greets you upon your arrival at Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City. You travel along a part of the scenic Hummingbird Highway to reach your first hotel. Settle into the treetops in a luxurious room with a view of the jungle canopy. On the following day, the family treks into the jungle for a daring, guided excursion to the Waterfall Cafes.

Spend time exploring the caverns and jumping into the cool natural pools. Next, you travel into the Maya Mountains for the unique experience of repelling down the cliff-side into the Black Hole, sandwiched between hiking excursions through the forest. Your private transfer escorts you to Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport for your brief flight to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. En route, you stop at the Belize Zoo to view the variety of animals all indigenous to the country. Then, the family ventures out for a half-day snorkeling tour. Visit the sensational combination of Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley for an experience of a lifetime swimming with the marine life.

Afterward, you take a scenic boat ride to the nearby island of Caye Caulker. The family can decide how to spend the day, whether strolling along the quiet sweets or kayaking around the forest reserve. Spend the day at your leisure, enjoying the sand, streets, and culture of Ambergris Caye and San Pedro Town. Rent a stand-up paddleboard or linger by the pool. You could even venture to Marco Gonzales, a site of Mayan ruins located on the fringe of the island. On your final day, your private transfer escorts you to San Pedro Airport for your return flight to Belize City, where you continue home.
