For travelers who like their vacations to be as exciting and action-packed as possible, there are few destinations that can compete with Belize. This amazing Central American nation is simply jam-packed with exhilarating things to do.
No adventure vacation to Belize would be complete without taking the Black Hole Drop. This 300-foot rappelling drop takes you into Actun Loch Tunich sinkhole. Though you cannot see the base of the sinkhole from the top, you will be able to see its lush rain forest canopy as you descend to the bottom. Once you reach the base, you will be able to grab a bite to eat before you begin your climb out of the sinkhole.
Of course, if you prefer your adventures to be water-based, you can always opt to go cave tubing. This will allow you to explore Belize from the comfort of its magnificent jungle rivers. You will float past underground waterfalls, stalagmites, stalactites, and plenty of beautiful green forestry.
If you want to take in a little more about the history and culture of Belize during your adventure holiday, you simply cannot miss out on a trip to Actun Tunichil Muknal cave. After a 45-minute hike, you will enter this historic burial site where you will be able to view skeletons, ceramics, and stoneware artifacts that have been left behind by the ancient Maya people. This tour truly is the perfect combination of culture and adventure.
To learn more about ancient Maya civilization, you can visit sites such as Xunantunich or Cahal Pech. At these locations, you will be able to see the ruins of Maya temples and other buildings. Of course, since they are situated in the middle of the jungle, you can also take some time to go nature watching.
Without question, however, the best place to spot some native Belizean animals is at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Over 300 different species of birds have been identified on the property – including keel-billed toucans and laughing falcons.
