Tour Overview

Cramming an astonishing range of cultural and natural wonders into a relatively small package, Belize is the adventure world’s best-kept secret. On this activity-packed trip, we navigate jungle trails, float through the Mayan underworld, snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef, and cross into Guatemala to visit one of the most important and impressive Mayan ruins in the world, Tikal. The adventure is capped with a stay on Caye Caulker, the quintessential palm-strewn, white-sanded Caribbean island.


  • Explore the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, home to birds, crocs and monkeys

  • Hop over to Guatemala to tour Tikal, a wonder of the ancient Mayan civilisation

  • Float along the Caves Branch River to see the Mayan underworld

  • Snorkel at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, a vital underwater habitat

  • Enjoy the laid-back island life of Caye Caulker

Daily delights

A new trip that exceeded expectations. Early start

A new trip that exceeded expectations. Early starts for birds and sunrises and fascinating insights ( and climbs!) into Mayan culture, finishing with Caribbean laid back vibe and a day swimming with nurse sharks and rays!

It didn’t get off to a good start as the prearrang

It didn’t get off to a good start as the prearranged taxi that I paid £114 for wasn’t at the airport I waited for about 20mins then thought I should get a local taxi which quoted me $50 for the ride to Crooked Tree which was about 20km So I think Exodus ripped me off charging so much for a poor service The arranged taxi did eventually turn up and said he’d been there all the time which was a lie as it’s a v small airport and I would have seen himThe trip itself was great with a lot packed in and an excellent guide Jorge who was unfailingly good humoured and v helpful and kind He even offered to lend me his glasses when I lost mine! The accommodations and food were all good The Jungle Lodge in Guatemala didn’t offer any drinking water except in plastic bottles which rather goes against Exodus policy The ATM caves were interested but I felt were a health and safety hazard as there would have been limited access for rescue services or evacuation Also the ancient artefacts were on the ground just taped off so could easily have been damaged by visitors and some already have been. I felt the administering authority should have taken better care eg providing walkways,emergency exits etc Finally I felt Caye Caulker was marred by a lot of plastic pollution bottles etc along the shoreline and the corals out at the reef were bleached I know that’s not an Exodus issue but maybe you feed back to the resort how to improve the tourist experience
