Overview & Highlights
This short holiday takes you to the heart of Belize’s Mayan mountains with their forests, waterfalls, wildlife spotting and snorkelling at a laidback reefside caye.
- Guided excursion to Caracol Mayan ruins
An economical holiday where you choose to visit Mayan ruins swathed in jungle, go abseiling, river or cave tubing, hiking, horse riding or biking along woodland trails; or just relax in your jungle lodge watching birds and curious mammals.
Continue by light aircraft to Ambergris Caye, a stunning coral island of chalk white, palm-shaded sands in the Caribbean. Life here is totally laid back, but you can be as active as you like with fantastic snorkelling at the Blue Hole and other water-sports available from your beach-side resort.
