For Americans and Canadians who want to get away for a while this March, Belize is a fantastic option. Aside from its warm weather and welcoming atmosphere, this beautiful Central American nation is simply jam-packed with exciting things to do. In fact, Belize was even selected as a premier adventure vacation destination by TripAdvisor.
Whether you are traveling with your family, your partner, or on your own, you are sure to enjoy exploring Belize’s lush jungles. Once you are here, you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of the vast array of animals that call Belize home.
Of course, if you really want to take your animal spotting to the next level, you can go bird watching at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Over 300 different species of birds have been seen here, including scarlet macaws, blue-crowned motmots, and harpy eagles. If you are at all interested in Belizean wildlife, Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is the place to be as well.
However, if you would prefer to explore Belize from the water, you will have plenty of adventures and excursions to choose from. For example, you could go cave tubing through some of the ancient Maya caves that are dotted around the nation. This is the perfect way to take in some of the culture and history of Belize and relax on the water at the same time.
Of course, it should go without saying that the biggest water-based attraction in Belize is the Belize Barrier Reef. Located around 300 meters off the coast, this coral reef is the second longest in the world and is home to over 500 different species of fish. If you would like to get an up-close look at this diverse eco-system, you can go snorkeling or scuba diving in the area.
When you are finished exploring for the day, you will, of course, need a place to lay your head. For the adventurous traveler, there is no better option than the award-winning Caves Branch Jungle Lodge – particularly if you have already spent time bird-watching on-site. At Caves Branch Jungle Lodge, you will be able to stay in luxurious tree houses featuring amenities such as a king-sized bed, a full bathroom, electric lights and fans screened-in outdoor views, a private deck, a two-person soaker tub, and carpentry manufactured from the finest local hardwoods.
