Belize Adventure Week
First Half – Sat – Tue, $1575 per person
Saturday, Day 1: Arrive BZE, 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 Resort. 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.
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.
Sunday, Day 2: Awake early and drive to Bocawina Rainforest Resort (45 min) for breakfast, then hike about 600’ up a steep jungle trail, where a view to the sea and refreshing pool reward our effort. After a long swim, we prepare for the waterfall rappell.
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!
After lunch we go ziplining! The course is set in 8 stages, with the longest run 2300 feet! The 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. In early afternoon we load up and begin the drive to our next destination, Windy Hill Resort near San Ignacio (2 hrs). Dinner and lodging at Windy Hill this evening.
Monday, Day 3: After breakfast we learn whitewater kayaking for a 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 on the river. The beginner-level rapids are quite exciting! Lunch is at a riverside cafe. After lunch we tour Xunantunich Ruins. We return to Windy Hill for our final night in the jungle.
Tuesday, Day 4: We pack up early and drive to the Caves Branch River where we run this easy river in kayaks, navigating by headlamp. Everyone must negotiate a quarter-mile portage on a jungle trail just after lunch. Finishing in the late afternoon, we drive to the Belize Biltmore Hotel in Belize City where we stay that night. 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.
Wednesday, Day 5: Earliest day to fly home, or continue to other spots in Belize for the rest of your trip.
