With one foot in the Central American jungles and the other in the Caribbean Sea, Belize may be small but it’s packed with adventure and culture. Just as the name implies, our adventure starts off with a glorious exploration of either Glovers Reef or Lighthouse Reef atolls. Lying like a string of pearls in a blue sea, each reef consists of half a dozen small cays of white sand and palm trees. A veritable glamping paradise, Glover’s and Lighthouse are the finest example of tropical coral reef ecosystems in the Western Hemisphere.
At either beach camp, you are accommodated in deluxe platform tents with comfy beds and treated to stunning views over the open Caribbean Sea. Ideally located for snorkeling, SUP, sea kayaking and kayak sailing, diving and fishing, participants enjoy daily outings led by expert guides who are skilled naturalists and fishermen, marine biologists and kayakers making your experience a blend of adventure, island culture, tropical vacation and learning. The remarkable abundance of life and the complex, simple beauty of this richest of tropical marine environments leaves its mark on all those who are fortunate enough to visit.
Our jungle adventure explores Belize’s incredibly diverse rainforest, national parks and the mysterious civilizations of the ancient Maya while staying in total luxury at Francis Ford Coppola’s Blancaneaux Lodge. A 20 room luxury hideaway, where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy, it’s a remote setting that allows guests to explore by day and return to their own decadent thatched roof dwelling each night. Perched high in the mountains near the Guatemala border, in the heart of the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve, this elegant facility offers hiking, horseback riding, guided mountain biking and wildlife tours as well as excursions into Mayan ruins and local villages.
