Glover's Reef Atoll is one of only three coral atolls in the Western Hemisphere. Begin your Belize adventure by spending two nights here, exploring by day the reef and its colorful array of undersea life. Snorkel with blue parrot fish, neon blowfish, six foot eagle rays, and harmless nurse sharks, and study delicate purple plume coral, brain coral, and sea fans. Learn the finer points of sea kayaking and windsurfing, or maybe just spend your time relaxing in a hammock shaded by stately palm trees. Next head inland to the thatched-roof cabanas of our jungle lodge. From here take a leisurely float through a cave, fly through the jungle on a zip-line, journey through cathedral shaped caves, explore winding trails along the Roaring River, and rappel into the incredible black hole drop.

Day 1: Arrive in Belize

Catch a connecting flight to Dangriga, and spend the night in this small town along the southern coast.

Day 2-4: Glover's Reef Atoll

  • Hotels
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
This morning you are transferred to the marina to meet up with the rest of the group for the kayaking portion. Travel by motor launch 20 miles east of the main Barrier Reef to the private island base-camp at Glover Reef Marine Reserve. This is an active excursion that includes many hours of kayaking each day. You should be prepared for vigorous -- and rewarding -- activities. Surrounded by rich coral reefs and beautiful turquoise waters, begin this adventure by rigging your kayak with main-sails and sailing along the shallow reef flats to a superb snorkeling site. Tonight enjoy an island feast with a mixed grill of seafood, fresh fish, and vegetables topped with Belizean coconut baking and tropical fruits.

Glover's is one of only three atolls in the Caribbean Sea and is truly the most spectacular marine environment in Belize. Due to its isolation from the mainland, the waters are exceptionally clear with an incredibly rich reef system that offers the best kayaking, snorkeling, and diving in the Caribbean. Day 2 & 3 are flexible in order to respond to both group and individual desires and abilities. Activities include: sea kayaking, snorkeling the inner and outer walls of the reef, kayak sailing, and windsurfing for both novices and experienced boarders. For those of you who are certified divers, we can also arrange dives on the outer walls. If all this sounds a little too busy, you always have the choice of just kicking back in a hammock and enjoying your Belize vacation with a good book and a cold drink.

For your last morning on Glover's Reef the choice is yours. You may choose to don a mask, snorkel, and fins for a
final visit to your favorite coral reef, or fly fish on the flats before a motor charter arrives to transport you back to the mainland.

Day 5: Maya Mountains

  • Hotels
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy your last morning on the reef before saying good-bye to the group and journeying into the country's interior. Travel by boat to the mainland, where a van awaits to take you along the Hummingbird Highway to your home for the next three nights. Along the way stop at the Belmopan Market, stretch your legs, and find a snack among the stalls piled high with fruits and housewares. Your jungle lodge is tucked next to the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve and Roaring River. Surrounded by pristine forest, your days at the lodge are filled with natural discoveries exploring the lush vegetation of the Maya Mountains and the mysteries beneath.

Day 6: Rainforest Zip-Line and Cave Tubing

  • Hotels
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This morning you have the thrilling opportunity to soar through the jungle treetops high above the forest floor. A short hike up into the rainforest leads you to the first of five platforms where you begin your exciting trip back down through the jungle canopy on a series of cables. In the afternoon, take a leisurely float through the caves and majestic jungle on inner tubes. Hike to the put-in to the Cave's Branch River with your inner tubes. From there, enjoy a float through a series of caves with glipses of the towering rainforest in between.

Day 7: Xunantunich & Macal River Canoeing

  • Hotels
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After a leisurely morning, set out down the Macal River for your first introduction to Belizean wildlife. Your guide helps you spot iguanas, peccaries, coatimundis, and a myriad of bird life. After lunch in town, visit the Maya ruins of Xunantunich, once a major ceremonial site and the second-tallest ruin in Belize. From atop, enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Cayo District of Guatemala.

Day 8: Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave

  • Hotels
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Rise early today for your unforgettable adventure into the Maya underworld. You begin your journey from the lodge doors, crossing creeks and journeying deep into the Belizean jungle to the opening of the sacred Actun Tunichil Muknal - the Cave of the Stone Sepulcher. At the entrance gear up with helmets and waterproof headlamps, then wade into the emerald colored water flowing from the cave's gaping mouth. The journey follows the river's flow through wet and dry caves encased in hanging stalactites and towering stalagmites. Your final destination is the spectacular primary chamber where ancient kings and priests made blood sacrifices to appease the Maya gods. Your head lamps illuminate the ghostly outlines of skeletal ritual victims and scattered ceramic shards of ancient rituals. Tunichil is an active archeological site, so be careful not to disturb the sleeping skeletons and ceramic pieces before returning to the light above ground. This is a fairly rigorous trip and travelers should be in good shape. For those looking for an alternative trip, a visit to the Barton Creek Cave is an excellent choice for any age. There are also other activities available for those who prefer life above ground.

Day 9: Return Home

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast, transfer to Belize City and catch your international flight home.

*Please schedule your international flight to depart 12:30 PM or later this day.
