Discover Belize’s Reef, Rainforest and Ruins

Reef, Rainforest and Ruins in Belize --- Belize vacations

Reefs and Rainforests and Ruins, Oh My! See them all on your Belize vacation

Many people believe that R&R stands for rest and relaxation and we won’t argue with them, but in Belize, we take our Rs one step further by boasting about the lushest, most impressive Reef, Rainforests and Ruins in the Caribbean–many of which are located along Belize’s 180 miles of coastline. If Belize presents you with too many delicious activity choices for your vacation, using the Three Rs to plan your time in Belize makes good sense. Make things even easier by staying at Chabil Mar Resort in Placencia, where staff is so helpful setting up guest itineraries, you won’t miss a thing.

Runways, first

To reach Belize, patronize any of the airlines servicing Belize, including Southwest, American, United, Delta, Westjet, and Air Canada. Flights originate in so many North American cities, it can take just hours to get you to Belize. If you’re coming from outside the U.S., book on Avianca or Copa Airlines.


Belize Reef adventures

Are you eager to get some exercise while exploring areas around the Belize Barrier Reef? Rent a kayak on Laughing Bird Caye to explore everything from mangrove swamps to white beaches. If aquatics are more your style, snorkel the turquoise waters of the Caribbean to see an astonishing mix of marine life around the reef where you’ll as likely run into scientists studying indigenous marine life as sports enthusiasts.

If you only have time to visit one rainforest, make it to Monkey River where you will find howler monkeys and gain access to the many sites and wonders found in Belize that allows you to pair two Rs on one excursion. Not every rainforest in Belize has such a variety of things to see and do, which is why putting yourself into the hands of tour specialists at Chabil Mar resort is such a great idea. Ask about our signature excursion packages like an exciting jungle trek.

  1. Is it possible to combine a rainforest river (raft or tube) trip with Mayan ruins in 1 day? We are 4 adults arriving on NCL cruise to Harvest Caye on March 8.

    1. Hello, Ms. Linda. That is a common choice for guests who are staying on the mainland, such as Chabil Mar. It would normally be an all-day 8 hour day to do that and it is a great adventure. However, from a cruise ship I am doubtful you can fit it into a day excursion since from Harvest Caye you to tether to the mainland and then drive a bit inland as well to get to both of those adventures. My suggestion is that you speak to the concierge on the cruise ship to see if they have something that comes close. The other idea is to get some of that in, the river tubing part with a local Placencia guide who can meet you at the doc at the point in Placencia and get you back there for your tether trip back to your ship. You can contact this Placencia tour guide, http://www.placenciadtourz.com/tours.html. They are excellent and long term Placencia residents. We hope you have such a fun day in Belize that you visit us for a full week-long Belize vacation. It’s the best way to really get to know the diversity of adventures in Belize. Thank you for asking us.
