While some plan a trip to Belize to just lay in a hammock, drink a frozen cocktail and relax, most  like to take advantage of all the activities Belize has to offer.  Whether it’s mainland trips to the ruins or jungle, repelling down waterfalls, visiting the Belize Zoo or snorkeling the reef, there are plenty of things to do for people of all ages and all levels of thirst for adventure.

  • Snorkeling
  • Cave Tubing
  • Manatee Watching
  • SCUBA Diving
  • Maya Ruins
  • Sailing on A “Old School” Belizean Sail Boat
  • The Belize Zoo
  • Zip Lining
  • Catamaran Sailing
  • Traveling Latin America
