Would you describe yourself as intrepid? Adventurous? Does your idea of a vacation consist of being on the go from morning until night because there’s too much to see and do to sleep in while vacationing? Time to discover Belize, where visitors find infinite surprises packed into a nation that’s smaller than Massachusetts.
Why visit a small country? Because adventurers don’t like to queue in lines and spend more time getting to and from destinations that they do once they reach them. Because Belize is so manageable, you can maximize your experiences by choosing lodgings in the middle of all of the action: Caves Branch Jungle Lodge.
Swinging from vines isn’t required, but included on the activity menu of this legendary Lodge are tours that show first timers why Caves Branch Lodge has been dubbed the unofficial adventure capitol of Belize. This is just a sampling of adventure tours that can be booked with Caves Branch staff, each of which comes with thrills, and some will give you chills:
-Visit up to 5 underground caves used for ancient ceremonial rituals by the Maya thousands of years ago
-Ride an inner tube into ancient geological chambers that contain mineral-covered skeletons and artifacts
-Inspect above-ground Mesoamerican sites that are equally majestic, fascinating and intriguing
-Don scuba diving gear to see for yourself why geologists can’t stop raving about Belize’s Great Barrier Reef
-Trek the jungle in search of all things scaly, chatty and exotic that include reptiles, monkeys and big cats
-Push your limits via the Lodge’s zip lining tour option where you’ll skim treetops at an exhilarating speed.
A lofty tree house, of course, but these are no primitive, rustic havens. Each tree house is designed for grownups and families, and they’re so luxurious, you could forget you’re sequestered above the trees during your stay! When you’re ready to alight from your perch, take full advantage of the onsite gourmet restaurant, massage center, pool and the most exquisite botanical gardens in Belize.
While there’s a 3-night minimum stay for folks seeking an adventure-based holiday, that doesn’t mean seasonal rate reductions aren’t available—-especially since August is still considered low season. Even the animals in the jungle know that inquisitive eyes of winter travelers won’t be peeking through trees for months, so your visit could reveal surprises that even those winter visitors won’t experience!
