For an adventure vacation, Belize has it all! From the rainforests full of wildlife and waterfalls to adrenaline-pumping activities like zip lining, rappelling, and cave tubing, you can customize your own adventure when you visit.
Start off at the Jaguar Creek rainforest lodge Belize and you’ll have everything you need to enjoy an epic adventure. In Belize, all inclusive adventure packages make it easy though you can inquire about anything that catches your eye and plan your days full of excitement.
Here are 5 of the top adventures travelers seek when they stay in Belize!
Take a cave river trip and tube into a dark cave for a completely unique experience. With the waterfall crashing up ahead, you’ll find yourself in tune with nature. Then you’ll emerge into the light and forests again, surrounded by exotic flora and fauna only native to Belize.
The cave formations are among the most fascinating because so many of them have not been fully explored. That means you could find something new when you’re there. The Actun Tunuchil Muknal is one of the most popular caves. It was once a Mayan burial site and features the ‘Crystal Maiden,’ the most famed skeleton in the cave.
This is an intensive activity that requires hiking, climbing, and swimming so be ready for action!
- Zip Lining
Soar high above the jungle like a bird with zip lining. Many of these tours combine it with rappelling too which makes it the ultimate in excitement. You can rappel down a waterfall which is a daring feat. But if you’re less experienced or traveling with your family, the Mayflower Bocawina National Park is an easier way to start out.
Want to make zip lining even more exciting? Try it at night and see the difference!
- Trek Through Ruins
Belize features a vast array of Mayan temples and historical sites. If you love history and adventure, this is the perfect activity for you. Xunantunich is one of the most popular though you can also visit Lamanai, Caracol, and Altun Ha if you have the time.
If your vacation only allows for a little exploration time, head to Cayo which is where Xunantunich is found. The pyramid El Castillo is a must-see for visitors of Belize, and is estimated to be about 1400 years old. Hike to the top and you’ll be treated to a sublime view!
- Helicopter Tours
Want to splurge on your adventure? Arrange for a helicopter tour and you’ll fly over the protected, untouched jungle reserves, mountains, and waterfalls. Nothing beats seeing the ruins from up high too, especially if you’ve already had the chance to explore them by foot first. While they’re a more pricey adventure, helicopter tours are the ultimate way to spend time in Belize.
Belize is located on one of the largest barrier reefs in the world, making it a prime place for both snorkeling and scuba diving. The water visibility tends to go over 100 feet, and with the clear, warm waters, it’s always a comfortable experience that gives you the chance to discover a whole new world.
The Belize Barrier Reef happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It includes the famed Blue Hole, a circular water hole that is astounding to see. You can view it from above the water via kayak, canoe, or other vessel. It’s an incredible once in a lifetime chance to see this landmark with your own eyes.
How to Set Up an Adventure in Belize
Jaguar Creek, your Belize adventure resort, has a number of opportunities for you to get out there and explore. When you can’t decide what to do first, try the zip lining and cave tubing combo where you get the best of both worlds. Take a Mayan site tour to see Xunantunich and Cahal Pech in Cayo.
