Postponed not once but twice,
we think the 3rd time will be the charm. This is also the prime
high season and ideal weather month of January. This will be our
9th trip to this incredible Central American country and it makes
for a wonderful adventurous vacation. We've always sold
this trip out and one year had enough interest to run 2 back-to-back
trips of 42 people each! The only change we're making to this
trip is adding one extra day since we still need more time to
enjoy this amazing country. So 5-nights on the mainland and then
5-nights on Ambergris Caye.
people think of Belize only as a diving resort, but it’s way more.
The mainland offers an amazing jungle with many ruins, archeological
sites and very unique adventure tours. Belize’s interior is
a 65-percent uninhabited wonderland of deep jungle rain forest,
exotic native species, and myriad Mayan temples. But certainly
it is also home to the worlds second-largest barrier reef.
With this trip we will start
off with 5-nights at the San
Ignacio Resort Hotel (read more below). This hotel has
beautiful rooms and is right in the center of San Ignacio, walking
distance to many restaurants which will make our dining, shopping
and dancing very convienent. Our group will be completely taking
over this hotel which should be a lot of fun. It also features
an award winning restaurant. It will be the perfect base for all
the adventure tours to be found nearby including an amazing site
of Mayan ruins called Xunantunich.
This ancient Mayan city rose to prominence and declined between
AD 700 to 1000. A well developed site, Xunantunich is on the Belize.com
Top Ten Maya Sites of Belize list.
This area of Belize, San Ignacio,
features 2 of the best optional tours you will ever take in your
lifetime. One of those is a tour that will have you floating on
an innertube through 7
miles of underground river caves with only
your headlamp to light your way. It's a very cool tour that's
a ot of fun. There are plenty of guides accompanying us too if
you'd like to hang on to one. Click
here to check out my video.
The other tour is a visit
to an incredible cave that's called
Muknal (ATM for short) which is one of the only caves
that has not been looted that has all the original
pottery is exactly how it was left hundreds of years ago
and even had a skeleton of a child that has been molded to
the floor with hundreds of years of calcification! It's a tour
you will never forget. Click
here to check out my video.
From National Geographic: In myths, journeys to
the underworld are never easy, and after visiting Actun Tunichil
Muknal (Cave of the Stone Sepulchre), you may feel that you have
been through your own epic test. Access to the Maya sacrificial
site within the cave involves hiking, wading, and underwater swimming,
but nearly a mile (1.6 kilometers) underground you will reach
the resting place of the “crystal maiden,” a complete female skeleton
that sparkles from eons of crystal calcification. The cave also
contains Maya pottery shards, many showing the “kill hole” intended
to allow spirits to escape.
fun day that we'll organize is a tour called Mountain
Pine Reserve (see photos left and right). This is an amazing
day filled with waterfalls swimming and beautiful scenery.
There's also optional
tours offered at the hotel including horseback riding,
zip lining, canoeing and more.
After our 5-days on the mainland
it's island time. We’ll fly over to Ambergris Caye in small
prop planes for the next
long, slender island is just inside the famous barrier reef with
excellent visibility and coral reefs. This is home to some of
the best diving in the world such as Lighthouse Atoll and
the famous Blue Hole! Click

that's had 38,000 views! . Our hotel has a dive shop with
nice boats on-site making your dives really convenient.
There’s also a variety of tours
available and fun little shops and restaurants to enjoy, plus
great nightlife! One of the best tours takes us island
hopping with a couple of snorkel stops and lunch on a small island
called Goff's Caye where we may be the only people there! And
one of the best snorkel destinations you'll ever visit is called
just a short boat trip from our hotel that we'll have in our itinerary.
You can also rent a golf cart and take your own tour of the island
which is a lot of fun. It's also fun to take a bike ride or golf
cart tour to explore the island and check out some of the other
resorts on the island with beautiful pools, drinks and
resort there, called Sunbreeze,
is located on a beautiful stretch of beach, has a nice pool,
their own dive shop, bar and restaurant and is located a short
walk from town. We’ll
snorkel, scuba dive and party on this great trip. Think it might
be too hot in the summer? It’s actually not bad at all.
This is the time of year we've always gone to Belize and it's
always been great.
