Have you considered a Belize vacation? Why? What comes to mind when you envision the country, culture, wildlife, and food of the Central American country? Does your imagination run away with you to a tropical paradise full of fascinating animals, sparkling azure beaches, and luxury accommodations?
Follow your imagination – it’s a step ahead of you! We’re very excited to announce that we’ve added a second Belize vacation to our list of trips! And since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we thought it’d be fun to share a few thousand with you.
Sit back, relax, listen for the breeze and the birds, breathe in the saltwater air, and soak up some sun – we’re going to Belize!
Staying close to home and exploring cities can be fun… But when you’re ready to make a splash, go global, and explore a tropical paradise full of awesome wildlife – all while helping out – you’ve got options.
Introducing our brand new “Belize – Wildlife Exploration” vacation: This trip strongly focuses on, you guessed it, the native wildlife!
TOUCH DOWN & CHECK IN
Once you arrive in Belize, your adventure will start in San Ignacio – a small town tucked lovingly into the heart of the jungle region. Check in to this luxury eco-lodge and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
ENJOY THE ADVENTURE
Next, make your way to a butterfly farm, where you’ll learn about the local butterflies and their relationship to the region. While you’re there, pitch in at the butterfly farm raising the incredible Blue Morpho butterfly.
During this Belize vacation, there are a number of excursions you can go on. One awesome option: Venturing off into the jungle and taking a (guided) hike through the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) caves.
After your magical butterfly visit and cave hike, head toward the coast! You’ll find yourself at an iguana breeding project, where you’ll get to feed and bathe the iguanas.
Whoa there, active traveler! You’ve fed the iguanas, but have you fed yourself? Take a quick break and enjoy some incredible food. A Belize vacation wouldn’t be complete without seafood and local flavors! Stop for a bite before you continue your wildlife adventure.
HEAD TOWARD THE WATER
It’s off to join local conservationists on the water! This isn’t your typical boat ride. Instead, you’ll be spotting manatees in the wild in an effort to help conservationists track them.
On the final leg of your Belize vacation, fly over to Ambergris Caye – where some of the world’s most gorgeous beaches (and the world’s second largest barrier reef) are both your sanctuary and playground. While you’re there, go snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve or Shark Ray Alley. You’ll see all kinds of amazing underwater life!
WRAPPING UP YOUR BELIZE VACATION
If after your weeklong Belize vacation you’re not ready to go home, don’t worry! You can continue on the post-trip extension to Tikal to explore ancient Mayan ruins!
Once you’re home, it’s time to plan your next adventure. We have a hunch you might already be ready for another Belize vacation – to see even more wildlife and lend a hand in saving the manatees. We’re ready to go when you are!
