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.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

For me, it was the Atacama desert. It is the driest desert in the world, and we had thunder storms!! But it left snow on the volcanos and fluffy clouds in the brilliant blue sky. Perfect for landscape photography.  The great guides, and the friendly fellow travelers.
The Penguin tour was excellent. It covered all the main places I wanted to see, from the Atacama to Patagonia. There are not many companies that cover so much, for group travellers.
