Pontoon Nature Tour

belize nature tours pontoon

The Pontoon Tour is a fantastic nature tour to the unspoiled Vaca Lake in the upper Macal River Valley in the Cayo District. The tour is approximately an hour drive from Cahal Pech Village Resort and is run by Lazaro Martinez, a native Belizean who grew up in the area all his life.

Howler Monkeys, toucans, white hawks, crocodiles, turtles, and an abundant of medicinal plants are only a few things that make this nature tour spectacular.

After a 45 minutes nature hike from Martz Farm, you will arrive at the Vaca Lake where Lazaro will take you on La Capitana (his pontoon) to show you a plethora of wildlife and swim and relax in three pristine and picturesque waterfalls.

Lazaro will also take you to one of the cascading waterfalls where you will enjoy a delicious Belizean lunch.

(For those who do not want to do the 45 minutes hike, there is an option where they can drive you to the Vaca Lake by vehicle.)
