In Belize, you can go on adventures you can't have anywhere else. This is why the country is known as one of the top adventure destinations in the world. Here are just four of the tours and activities you can only experience here.
1. Cave Tubing and Jungle Zip Lining
Both cave tubing and jungle zip-lining are popular activities with visitors to Belize. Cave tubing is a relaxing, easy and educational activity, making it especially suited for families with kids. You get to travel through caves that were once sacred sites to the ancient Maya, forming a strong connection to the world of the past. With zip-lining, you get to have the exhilarating experience of soaring through unspoiled jungle and seeing everything from a new perspective.
2. Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave Tour
The Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave was voted by National Geographic as the #1 sacred cave site in the world. It is known locally as the ATM or the “Cave of the Crystal Maiden,” so named because of a calcified skeleton of an adolescent that has taken on a crystallized appearance. Inside you will see impressive geologic formations as well as Maya pottery and artifacts that have laid undisturbed for hundreds of years. During your tour, you will get to explore a number of passageways and hear the stories of the ancient Maya.
3. Xunantunich and Cahal Pech Maya Ruin Tours
A trip to see Maya ruins is one of the most awe-inspiring activities you can do while in Belize. There are many different sites, all with their own charms, but two of the most amazing are Xunantunich and Cahal Pech. Xunantunich was once a major city-state of the Maya and home to an estimated 200,000 people. With six plazas and more than two dozen buildings on-site, including the largest at over 130 feet tall, El Castillo, it's a sight to behold. The Cahal Pech Maya Ruins were once the estate of an elite ruling Maya family where you will be fascinated to see how these people lived. The two tours can easily be combined.
4. Jungle Pontoon Waterfall Adventure Tour
The Jungle Pontoon Waterfall Adventure Tour takes visitors out onto the majestic Vaca Lake, a large lake spanning six miles that were formed by the creation of the Vaca Dam. Keep a lookout for monkeys, crocodiles and colorful, exotic birds from the comfort of your pontoon boat. The tour will also stop by three waterfalls where you can swim, have lunch and just soak in some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Belize.
To experience these wondrous sights and more, plan to stay at the Cahal Pech Village Resort. Located in the heart of the culturally and ecologically significant Cayo District, there is much to see and do here that can't be done anywhere else.
