If lying in the sun non-stop is your idea of a fabulous Belize vacation, stop reading now. We’re exploring the adventurous side of Belize and it’s not for wimps!
Everyone’s vacation style is unique and we certainly don’t want to put people down who are eager to do nothing more than veg on the beach. But what a wasted trip that would be! Belize is a hotbed of adventure that includes hiking jungles and rainforests, diving the Belize Barrier Reef and if you haven’t zip lined in paradise, you don’t know what you’re missing.
What can you expect…
…if you pack your hiking boots, dive gear and very little else? A euphoric, challenging holiday in a nation that measures just 8,867 miles in size, yet it’s possible to undertake twice the number of adventures you might in a larger nation, even if your vacation time is limited. And since everyone speaks English and U.S. dollars are accepted everywhere, you haven’t a single reason to stay home.
What’s the secret to memorable adventures in Belize? A home base that’s a tranquil haven of posh digs, gourmet food and the most helpful staff on the planet: Chabil Mar Villas. Whether your idea of fun is going off on your own or you rely upon tours, say the word and staff will get you where you want to go safely and quickly.
Push your limits!
-Stroll Belize’s version of Hollywood. So many celebs flock to Ambergris Caye, you can practically hear Madonna sing about San Pedro Town. There’s lots on the Ambergris adventure menu but a nighttime croc-watching tour at the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary should get you started nicely.
-A Belize Barrier Reef tour offers the ultimate in snorkeling and diving. Go deep-sea fishing, too. Meet all manner of critters hanging out at the reef and around the ocean; spot everything from giant turtles to reef sharks–and fellow divers of course.
-You’ll need sturdy boots to explore the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, but a reward awaits at the end of your trek: swim in dramatic waterfalls like Big Rock Falls and Rio On Pools to cool down once you’ve logged an impressive number of miles required to reach these gorgeous spots.
-See how many of the 900 Maya ruins you can get to during your Chabil Mar stay. Since you’re staying at one of the most centrally-located districts in Belize, you can rack up a sizeable number of ancient cities, caves and ceremonial sites during your visit.
-Run with the big cats. Literally. Forest preserves, parks and sanctuaries serve as home to endangered jaguars, puma and cats you’ll find only in zoos or on the pages of National Geographic magazine. You probably won’t have to run from them because many are surprisingly shy, but plan to cover serious ground by foot to reach these remote areas.
-You’re invited to pick up the pace in a way that is guaranteed to fill you with joy: Visit villages that are home to Belize’s Garifuna people, declared the friendliest people in the nation. You cannot end your adventures without learning to drum and dance Garifuna style. Say the word and your Chabil Mar host will make sure you do it all!
