Ziplining & River Tubing: If adventure is what you seek, you are sure to enjoy the most scenic zipline in Belize. Fly across the valley, and cool off after in the refreshing waters of the South Stann Creek River, all while listening to the sounds of the jungle! For almost 2 miles, you will enjoy the thrills of rushing over small (Class 2) rapids and the relaxation of the slower parts of the river. Our knowledgeable guides can point out hard-to-spot birds and identify their calls, while you sit back and enjoy the ride. All participants will be provided a life jacket and helmet.

- Actun Tunichil Muknal:  The adventure begins with an hour-long hike through the 6,700-acre Tapir Mountain Nature Preserve. Crossing three shallow rivers to the cave’s entrance, you get the chance to take a dip in the spring-fed pool before wading up the subterranean river. You will encounter several large caverns, including one known as the “Cathedral”, where a number of undisturbed Maya artifacts are visible—including a soaring altar, carved from the native stone. The cave is known by many names, one of which is “The Cave of the Stone Sepulcher”, due to this magnificent piece of religious artistry. See the intact skeletons of the people whose lives were sacrificed in a desperate effort to appease the gods during one of the most turbulent and difficult times in Mayan history. This adventure requires the visitor to be able to hike, swim, climb through tight spaces, and traverse large stone steps up to the inner sanctum.

- Maya Ceremonial Cave: Enjoy a scenic drive through the Maya Mountains, down to the Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant, where you’ll ride through open citrus orchards by horse and buggy. The cave, located behind the Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant, is reserved exclusively for guests of The Belize Collection. Very few people ever enter the cave, making it the ultimate, intimate tour experience.

- Scarlet Macaw Tour: From December to March, you have the unique opportunity to see Scarlet Macaws in the wild.  Take an hour-long drive down to Red Bank village and the Swasey River for a chance to see these birds, as well as several other colourful species. Take a dip in the refreshing river whilst your guide prepares breakfast on an open fire, and return to birding for as long as you wish.

Xunantunich & Inland Blue Hole: Take a scenic drive along the Hummingbird and Western Highways, before exploring the Mayan ruin of Xunantunich (pronounced Shu-nan-tu-nitch), or Stone Maiden. The main pyramid, El Castillo, has detailed stucco friezes and steps that you can climb all way to the top. The tour guide will stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and you’ll get to enjoy the fresh dip at the inland Blue Hole on your way back.

Southern Ruins & Chocolate Making: Take an hour-and-a-half long drive to the Mayan site. Explore, then retire to a local restaurant for lunch before getting back to sightseeing another Mayan site. On the drive back, we'll stop at Ixcacao, the traditional Maya Chocolate Factory! Yes, you get samples, and you'll get to make your very own chocolate, the way that the Mayas did! We'll spend about an hour there before we head for home.

Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve and River Tubing: Located in Southern Belize is the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world's only jaguar preserve. Surrounded by the Maya Mountains and the towering Victoria's Peak, the Basin's 120,000 acres are also home to jaguarundi, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys and tapirs. The park offers a wide variety of hikes, including a waterfall hike where you can dip in the refreshing waters. 

- Monkey River Tour: Explore the southern coast by boat, where you will get the opportunity to see a variety of different bird species—and maybe a dolphin or two—in their natural habitat. Stop in at the village of Monkey River to place your lunch order and take a short drive upriver—look out for crocodiles on way!
