Belize is a small country in Central America, well known for its vast jungle and pristine wildlife. This jungle covers most of the mainland and is home to various species of wildlife, birds, and many flowers/medicinal plants. There are many things for you to see and discover in this tropical wonderland; which means we have a variety of tours for you to choose from.

Whether it is at Jaguar Paw, Mayflower National Park, or at Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch; each offers a range of zip lines that goes higher than the other. This gives you an amazing aerial view of the rainforest and waterfalls.
Jungle Horseback Riding

Tour trails of medicinal plants and herbs an be found in parts of the Cayo district; here you get to see what the Mayas and older Belizeans used for many of their pains and illnesses (fever, chickenpox, stomach aches).

Jungle ATV Tours
If you’re not a fan of hiking the jungle, then an ATV tour is right up your alley. A very thrilling tour that is perfect for adventurers and families alike.
This involves cruising down the waterways in a tube, through large caves with glistening limestone and small waterfalls.
