Flying into Dangriga

Saturday, Day 1

Arrive at Belize International Airport, then continue on a local flight to Dangriga (guest responsibility, see Domestic Flight Reservations).

Landing in Dangriga, if you can carry your luggage about the length of a football field, simply walk directly toward the sea and you are there. If you have too much to carry, catch a cab one block to Pelican Beach Hotel. Note: your international flight should land in Belize no later than 4:00 pm to ensure you will be able to catch the last flight to Dangriga; be sure to check local flights before confirming international flights. If you land later you will have to use a cab to catch up with the group. (If you must arrive later request the Belize Adventure Week information sheet for If Late or Delayed for more info on catching up with the group). We meet for orientation, dinner, and overnight at Pelican Beach Resort at 6:00 p.m. We cover all hotels, meals, and transport once meeting you.

Antelope Falls, Belize pool

Sunday, Day 2

After a sunrise awakening and coffee, we drive to Bocawina Rainforest Resort (45 min) for breakfast, then prepare for the waterfall rappelling adventure. The hike is about 600’ up a steep jungle trail, where a view to the sea and refreshing pool reward our effort. The guides train everyone on rappelling, and one by one each person descends through the waterfalls. Guests can hike back down to opt out of this event if they choose. This is a thrilling morning!We teach beginning whitewater kayaking on the Mopan River.


Lunch is served picnic-style, and then we go ziplining! A short hike brings us to the start of the course, which is set in 8 stages, with the longest run 2300 feet! Bocawina guides set everyone up with harnesses and give thorough instruction on the zipline technique. Any guests feeling uncertain of their ability can ride tandem with a guide. Your flight through the canopy is one you’ll not soon forget!
Bocawina zipline in BelizeIn early afternoon we load up and begin the drive to our next destination, Windy Hill Resort near San Ignacio (2 hrs). Our route follows the Hummingbird Hwy, which winds through the lush rainforest among the foothills of the Maya Mountains, and is a strikingly beautiful drive. Dinner and lodging at Windy Hill this evening.

 

We teach beginning whitewater kayaking on the Mopan River.

Monday, Day 3

After breakfast we embark on a kayak run down the Mopan River. We use sit-on-top kayaks for this adventure, which are stable and easy to paddle. A land training session is followed with further instruction as we travel downstream. The beginner-level rapids are quite exciting! You will learn to surf waves, dodge rocks, and plunge off small drops. We enjoy lunch at a riverside cafe. Xunantunich Mayan ruin
       

 

 

 

 

That afternoon we climb The Castillo pyramid at Xunantunich Ruins, where our guide gives an interesting talk on Mayan culture. We return to Windy Hill for our final night in the jungle.

Putting in on the Caves Branch River.

Tuesday, Day 4

We pack up early and drive to the Caves Branch River. After a short orientation we launch on our underground journey in hardshell kayaks, navigating by headlamp. This unique trip combines caving with river running. Everyone must negotiate a quarter-mile portage on a jungle trail during this five-mile run. This is arguably the best one-day adventure in the country! Finishing in the late afternoon, we drive to the Belize Biltmore hotel in Belize City where we are joined by others on the Adventure Island at Glover’s Reef Second Half Entering one of the caves on the Caves Branch, Belizepackage. After checking into the Biltmore, First Half guests are on their own for dinner and breakfast the next day, although your hotel is covered this night. Full Week and Second Half guests have an island orientation followed by dinner at the hotel.

Wednesday, Day 5

Time to hit the Caribbean! After breakfast at the hotel everyone heads out to our island, Long Caye, on our private shuttle boat (3 hrs). Arriving before noon, we tour the island, have lunch, and move into our cabanas. Soon after, we offer snorkeling orientation where we go snorkeling right from shore. Time permitting, some guests may want to try out kayak surfing if the waves are up before dinner. Visit our snorkeling page for more underwater images and a list of creatures we often see. You can also find a map of our Belize snorkeling sites on the same page.

Friday, Day 7

We begin our last full day with windsurfing instruction. Guests may also choose between activities such as kayak rolling lessons, kitesurfing classes, scuba diving classes, paddleboarding, surfing, fishing, or snorkeling around the island. Fishermen are always pleasantly surprised to find out how good the fishing is, and we even pay for your fishing license!Sea kayaking off Long Caye.

Saturday, Day 8

Island activities in the morning. After lunch we return to Belize City. Our arrival time cannot be predicted since it depends on factors we cannot control. Therefore, guests should not make other plans for Saturday night, and our last night’s lodging is included in the trip price. You will not get back in time to catch an international flight.

 

After checking into the Biltmore, guests are on their own for dinner.

 

 

 

Sunday, Day 9

Earliest day to fly home.

 

 

Although this is an accurate description of the Belize Adventure Week itinerary, it is subject to change. Belize weather, river levels, wind speed, and road conditions can cause delays and substitution of activities. We sell a Belize map that will help you to better visualize all of the terrain we cover in one week.
