Mayflower Jungle & Waterfall Hike
Just a short drive from Hamanasi are two thrilling hikes through the rainforest leading to waterfalls.
Orchids, birds and lush vegetation abound!
Sittee River Canoeing & Kayaking
The trip starts near the Creole village of Sittee River and slowly heads towards the ocean. You will have fun spotting green and orange iguanas lounging in trees and maybe a crocodile resting at the water's edge. Parrots, toucans, motmots, herons and egrets often can be seen -- and heard!
Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary & Jaguar Preserve
The Basin's 120,000 acres is also home to jaguarundi, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys and tapirs.
Knowledgeable guides identify the numerous plants, birds and fauna of the pristine rainforest. You can take a short tubing trip down a jungle stream and river otters even may join you! With over 290 recorded species of birds this park is ideal for birders.
Caves & Jungle Adventure
Traveling past citrus orchards on the gorgeous Hummingbird Highway you will reach Blue Hole National Park and/or Five Blues Lake National Park. The Blue Hole Park is in one of Belize's oldest jungles dense with large, hardwood trees. The park's namesake is a large, sapphire blue, 30-foot wide sinkhole fed by crystal clear underground streams. Also featured is St. Herman's Cave, a mile long cave into which visitors may hike. A hike around a mountain lake while birding leads to a scenic overlook. Just down the road is Five Blues Lakes National Park, a 4,000-acre park named after a 7.4-acre cenote's apparent change of colors.
Magical Mayan History Tour

The main pyramid, El Castillo, has detailed stucco friezes. After
you'll visit Cahal Pech, or Place of the Ticks.
