BELIZE (02/11) –My Exclusive Journeys, known for its unsurpassed adventures in Central America, offers “Adventuring Belize,” a journey that combines the mysteries of the ancient Mayan people with the exploration of the second largest barrier reef in the world and beautiful beaches.
The seven-night journey begins with a night in Belize City before transferring to the historic Cayo District for four nights. Explore the Maya Underworld as you travel by canoe into the eerie five-mile limestone cave with a guide and powerful flashlights. You’ll learn the archeological significance of the cave which was used for ceremonial purposes and as a funeral site by the ancient Mayans.
Travel through the jungle to Tikal, Guatemala, once the most powerful city in the Americas. Tikal is still a world of magic with a huge complex of temples, altars, pyramids and palaces peeking out above the lush jungle. Today you’ll see monkeys, aracaris, motmots and maybe a jaguar. Catch an outstanding view of the jungle from the top of a temple.
Explore the quaint town of San Ignacio and go cave tubing in a subterranean river past unusual rock formations, Maya pottery and artifacts. Placencia, a sleepy fishing village with posh boutique hotels, is your last stop on this expedition. Head to the Belize Barrier Reef for snorkeling or scuba diving or relaxing on 16 miles of beach.
Rates for the seven night expedition start at $1857 and include accommodations, breakfast daily, a massage, some lunches, cave tubing and airport transfers per person, sharing.
