Belize Jungle and Beach Singles Vacation
Vacation Day 1 - Arrive Belize
Your vacation begins upon arrival at the Belize airport (airport code
BZE), where you will be met by our local driver.
Arrive early and spend the day at Bacab Eco park (only 15 minutes from the airport). Relax and enjoy nature while
waiting for your fellow vacationers to arrive. The Bacab Eco Park has a magnificent free-form pool, sculptured
waterfall, restaurant and bars, all smack in the middle of the jungle.
Once all travelers have arrived we will travel as a group to San Ignacio and our resort. Tonight enjoy our Welcome
Dinner at our resort.
Vacation Day 2 - Caracol and Mountain Pine Ridge
Today we travel to the Mayan City of Caracol and its massive temples "Caana", which
cover 30-square miles of thick, high-canopy jungle, five plazas, an astronomic observatory and over 35,000
buildings. Caracol boasts several hieroglyphic carvings on alters, a ball court and capstones. Among the recovered
items are a ritual mask and ceremonial altar. The excavation at Caracol is still ongoing.
Next we cool off in the pine forests, tumbling streams, lush river valleys, caves and waterfalls of Mountain Pine
Ridge. After a quick hike, view the breathtaking sight of the 150 foot intense rush of white water calming into a
large swimming hole at the Big Rock Falls. Then we move on to Rio on Pools to enjoy a wide span of naturally formed
pools and cascading falls. The most popular of the waterfalls is the Hidden Valley Falls, a spectacular fall that
drops 1500 feet to the valley below.
Tonight we will have dinner at our hotel.
Vacation Day 3 - Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM Cave) or Belize Zoo
This amazing day can best be described as an "Indiana Jones" type experience. The ATM
cave tour promises a thrilling experience with impressive stalactites and stalagmites rock formations coupled
with Mayan pottery, undisturbed after hundreds of years. As we travel from San Ignacio Town hear stories of
Mayan Gods and see ancient passage ways, and evidence of a Mayan princess burial scene.
Actun Tunichil Muknal consists of a series of chambers, ending in a 300 by 50 meter Cathedral where sacrificial
ceremonies once took place. We will be exposed to the individuals sacrificed to the gods of the underworld. This
ATM Cave Tour offers us the opportunity to travel into the Maya past and witness a living museum where human
sacrifices and artifacts can be viewed in their original context.
Prefer a less active day then visit the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center. The
zoo is situated upon 29 acres of tropical savanna and exhibits over 150 animals, representing over 45 species,
all native to Belize. They keep animals which were orphaned, rescued, born at the zoo, rehabilitated animals,
or sent to
A visit to the zoo is the best way to get an introduction to the animals of Belize, and to understand why it is
important to protect the habitats that sustain them.
Tonight we will go into the town of San Ignacio. There will be free time for dinner and shopping.
Vacation Day 4 -Cave Tubing and Hike
Today we experience one of Belize’s most popular attractions, cave tubing. Gently cruise down the Caves Branch
River System into an underground cave used by ancient Mayas. Within these vast caverns witness incredible
formations of stalactites and stalagmites some shaped like human and wildlife figures. Our day will also
include a forty minutes hike through the jungle.
Before we start tubing there is an option for ziplining. See below for more information.
Enjoy dinner at our resort tonight.
Vacation Day 5 -Ambergris Caye - San Pedro Town
After breakfast we leave the jungle behind and travel by boat to Ambergris
Cayes, known for being a true Caribbean playground, where our vacation continues. The island features the
Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world with world class scuba diving and snorkeling.
After checking in to the Banana Beach Resort, we will stroll (15 minutes) into San Pedro town. The town is a
picture postcard setting - small colorfully painted houses set alongside sand streets nestled beside the clear
turquoise sea. Coconut palms sway and rustle in the gentle cooling trade winds. Golf carts and bicycles are the
principal mode of transportation. The streets are home to local and visiting barefoot strollers, casually making
their way through the shops and restaurants or just relaxing and chatting with the locals.
Vacation Day 6 - Hol Chan Marine Reserve/Shark Ray Alley
Our morning excursion takes us off the southern tip of Ambergris Caye to Belize’s oldest marine
reserve, the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. The entire reserve focuses on a cut through the reef which is little more
than 25 yards wide and 30 feet deep.
Over 160 species of fish have been identified at Hol Chan & Shark Ray
Alley, along with nearly 40 species of corals, 5 sponges, 8 algae, 2 sea grasses, 3 marine mammals and 3
species of sea turtle. In waters as shallow as 5 feet, large schools of jacks, groupers, snappers and
barracuda abound. Along each side of the cut grow healthy stands of corals and sea grass in shallow water,
perfect for the beginner snorkeler. The more experienced swimmer can swim from one side of the cut to the
other, experiencing shallow reef, drop offs, sea grass and sand beds in the middle of the channel.
The sharks and rays hear the dive boats approaching and begin to school in anticipation of bait being thrown.
These creatures have a great tolerance for divers and snorkelers. The rays, which have a ‘wing-span’ of two to four
feet, swim directly towards you, mouths often turned up hoping for a hand held bit to be placed near their mouths.
The docile Nurse Sharks average four to six feet in length and can be a bit more aggressive than the sting
rays. Snorkel equipment included and diving equipment can be rented (see prices
Vacation Day 7 - Ambergris Caye
Free day to relax, hang at the beach, take an optional tour or rent a golf cart or bike
Vacation Day 8 - Ambergris Caye
Let's try something different and take a quick and smooth ride to some of the best fishing grounds off
Ambergris Caye. All our equipment and bait will be provided. The local guides are always
willing to assist you and help make our day of fishing fun. After fishing we head towards the nearest snorkel stop
before heading ashore.
Afternoon free to enjoy the beach or last minute shopping in San Pedro.
Tonight enjoy our Farewell dinner together.
