Leaving Cahal Pech Village Resort we will drive up the Western highway passing farms and orange orchards before reaching the Macal river. Paddling slowly downstream, our knowledgeable guide will point out exotic species of wildlife like iguanas, turtles, and the king fisher that live along the banks of the river.
Canoe through peaceful rock canyons and just relax and take in the picturesque beauty of the Macal River.
Canoeing The Belize River
The tour will also take you across our sister ranch Carmelita Farm. From here, canoe down the scenic Belize River and observe a plethora of birds and giant iguanas. Along the way, we will pass by a hand-cranked ferry and several quaint villages. We will also stop for a swim and have a chance to view the fruit fish, which our guests often mistake for Piranhas.
