Detailed Description

Your 8-day senior tour of Belize with your family will highlight the marvels of the jungle and tropical islands. You will experience a plethora of unforgettable moments, such as the splendor of a sunset from the world’s second-largest barrier reef and uncovering the incredible grandeur of a Mayan city hidden among the dense collection of trees. Your family will become enchanted with the natural history and heritage of Belize, which will reveal the wonders of caves, the fluorescent charms of coral, the dramatic cry of howler monkeys, and the intricate etchings of an ancient society.

Your adventure to Belize will begin with your arrival at the Belize Airport, where your private transfer will greet you at customs. You will then transfer to your luxurious accommodation near the town of San Ignacio for four nights of luxury, family-friendly tours, and abundant wonders. You can enjoy the excursions at your preferred pace as you tour with private guides and cruise along the water of the Macal River in search of the wildlife, traverse the trails of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary for signs of jaguars, and immerse yourselves in the histories and fascinating engineering of the Mayan civilization.

Before arriving in Ambergris Caye for three nights, you will have a private tour of the jungle canopy by participating in a thrilling zipline experience, where the fun of gliding above the rainforest floor will feel as wonderful as searching the treetops for signs of wildlife. You will also have the opportunity to visit the famous cavern of Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave, where natural and cultural history converge.

While on Ambergris Caye, you will indulge in an immersive snorkeling expedition of the coral reef of Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley, which will provide you with mesmerizing views of the mingling of nurse sharks and manta rays. Your final day in Ambergris Caye will be at your leisure to enjoy the island and its surroundings. During this time, you can participate in a delicious food tour of San Pedro or glide through Swallow Caye Wildlife Sanctuary on a boat safari in search of manatees and dolphins. When your vacation nears its end, your private transfer will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to the island airport for your flight to Belize City, where you can easily connect to your flight home.
