Hiking in Belize

There are some fantastic hiking trails in Belize, although most of the hiking available is actually on the way to another activity, such as a Mayan ruin or Mayan ceremonial cave. Most of the maintained trails are in the jungle, and a competent guide should point out the local plants and their medicinal uses, as well as jungle birds and animals. All you need are comfortable clothes - long-sleeve and long-leg, hiking shoes, a water bottle, insect repellent, (optional) binoculars, and a camera.





To read about jungle hiking as part of a multi-sport package, check out our Belize Adventure Week trip.

Jungle Hiking Incorporated into Other Activities

Walking jungle paths is incorporated into many of Slickrock's other activities. On our Belize Adventure Week itinerary we hike through lush jungle during the portage on the Caves Branch River, which provides an excellent opportunity to see rainforest flora and fauna.


Climbing The Castillo, Xunantunich, Belize


 When exploring Xunantunich our groups hike through rainforest, preserved through a national park. We also hike through 2 miles of jungle to get to the top of Antelope Falls on our Adventure Week trip. Along the way your guide will point out various plants and their medicinal uses. Numerous birds and iguana are often seen.


We do a lot of hiking at Tikal!











Birding in Belize








Birders will find many opportunities in Belize, and most birding tours incorporate hiking. Most jungle lodges in Cayo (the area around the city of San Ignacio) offer birding tours. To see a list of our favorite lodges in Cayo, visit our Things to Do in Belize page.
