Every traveler enjoys a different type of vacation. For some, vacations should be all about relaxing on the beach with a drink in your hand. For others, travel should be about adventure – the opportunity to hike through forests, climb mountains, and traverse rivers and lakes. If you fall into the latter category, Belize is the perfect vacation destination for you.
Adventure travelers love Belize for its rugged natural beauty that offers plenty of opportunities for exploration. For travelers who like to spend time on and in the water, the Belize Barrier Reef is always a popular spot. With so many varieties of fish and coral to see, it is the perfect place to go snorkeling or scuba diving. It is often said that Belize offers some of the best snorkeling anywhere in the Caribbean.
If exploring the depths of Belize’s caves is more your speed, you may wish to pay a visit to Caves Branch. This archaeological reserve consists of a network of winding limestone caves that are as interesting as they are beautiful.
For travelers who prefer a more challenging adventure, Belize has lots to choose from. You can really put your endurance and stamina to the test with a hike to the top of Victoria Peak – Belize’s second largest mountain. Along the way, you can enjoy all of the sights and sounds of the lush forests that surround the mountain.
If you prefer your adventures to have some historical significance, you can always choose to take a trip to one of Belize’s Maya temples and sacred caves. Actun Tunichil Muknal and Xunantunich are always popular with travelers. Once there, you will be able to explore the ruins and take in the natural beauty that now surrounds them.
Of course, after a long day of exploration, you will need a place to lay your head – and true adventurers don’t like to stay in fancy hotels or resorts. Instead, the perfect place for adventure travelers to stay during their trip to Belize is a tree house at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge.
Here, travelers can escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and simply sit back to enjoy the view. Though each tree house is a little different than the last, you won’t need to worry about missing out on your favorite amenities. Each house comes equipped with a private bathroom, electricity, cooling, and luxurious furniture.
