If you have been looking for a place to go on an adventurous vacation, Belize might just be the destination of your dreams. Aside from the warm weather, a welcoming atmosphere, and stunning natural beauty, this Central American nation is also full of exciting things to do.
Whether you are visiting Belize on a honeymoon, family vacation, with your partner, or on your own, you simply cannot miss out on the Black Hole Drop. This 300-foot sinkhole, nicknamed the “Mother of all Caves,” provides excitement and stunning views in equal measure. When you visit, you will be able to rappel down the hole into the lush canopy of trees that lines the bottom. Once you reach the bottom, you will be able to take in the sights and grab a bite to eat before starting the climb back out of the sinkhole.
If you prefer your adventures to be water-based, you and your group can go cave tubing. You will hop into an inner tube and make your way down the beautiful rivers and creeks of Belize, passing through some ancient caves along the way. Your cave tubing adventure will bring you past pristine underground waterfalls, a crystal cathedral, and an ancient Maya spiritual center.
Of course, if you and your party would like to see some wildlife on your Belizean adventure, you can take a trip into the jungle. More specifically, you can go to Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Here, you will be able to grab your binoculars and see how many of the more than 300 bird species that live in the area that you can spot.
While you are at Caves Branch, you can also take a tour of the beautiful on-site botanical gardens. Featuring tons of native Belizean flora and fauna, these gardens are the perfect spot to smell the lemongrass and see the cacao.
During your vacation in Belize, you will no doubt need somewhere to stay. While you could choose to stay in a traditional hotel, more adventurous travelers prefer to stay in one of the luxurious tree houses at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Each tree house features electric lights and fans, hot and cold water, bug screens, beautiful art, electrical outlets, and carpentry made from the finest local materials.
