For the first week you will experience the highland jungle from two locations: one eco-lodge on the Macal River adjacent to the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve; the other on the banks of Caves Branch River next to Blue Hole National Park. The two locations compliment each other with excursions and activities from different ecosystems. Activities and excursions from Black Rock Lodge feature wildlife, river systems, jungles and Mayan ruins. Signature adventures in the Cave's Branch area feature exploration of the underground caves and waterfalls with activities that include river tubing, rappelling, hiking.
Top off your tropical experience at a beach resort down on the coast near the town of Placencia, located on the Placencia Peninsula. The peninsula is lined with beaches, resorts with the barrier reef poised 17 miles offshore. You are just a short ride into town where you will find restaurants, shops, nightlife, tour companies and dive shops. Between April and July the area is home to Whale Sharks. Trips can be arranged to spot and possibly swim with these gentle animals and the largest fish in the sea.
Upon arrival in Belize you will be picked up at Belize's international airport and transferred overland to Cave's Branch (with a stop at the Belize Zoo), where you will spend 3 nights in a Jungle Bungalow.
The All-inclusive package includes lodging, all meals from dinner on arriving day to breakfast on departing day, complimentary drinks on arrival, local beers, local rum drinks, juice, sodas, and water during your stay; and a choice of either 2 single day adventures or 1 overnight adventure.
