Tour Overview

If we had to describe the Belizean pace it would be somewhere between slowly rolling waves and the inquisitive speed of a ruin explorer. Embracing just that mix of curious and chill, this nine-day itinerary will let you tour Mayan ruins, cycle around stunning islands, and enjoy plenty of time to hang out on the beach or dive into the famous Blue Hole. Be speedy, or a bit sloth-like — we’ll help you discover Central America either way.

Highlights

  • iconSpot tropical sea life while snorkelling the world's second-largest barrier reef
  • iconExplore the jungle-set ruins of Tikal
  • iconListen to reggae music as you walk down Caye Caulker's sandy main street
