Overview & Highlights

This short holiday takes you to the heart of Belize’s Mayan mountains with their forests, waterfalls, wildlife spotting and snorkelling at a laidback reefside caye. 

In this satisfying taste of Belize you'll have the chance to visit Mayan ruins swathed in jungle, go river tubing or hiking in pristine forests, snorkel on the barrier reef or simply relax on Caribbean shores. We include an excursion to Caracol, Belize's most important Mayan site as well as the scope to head over the border to Tikal in neighbouring Guatemala, or delve into the mysterious ATM Caves.

Your holiday winds down in bustling San Pedro, Ambergris Caye - the largest island on the Belize barrier reef with chalk-white, palm-shaded sands and the aquamarine tones of the Caribbean sea. Life here is totally laid back, but there's plenty going on in the resort and you can be as active as you like with fantastic snorkelling and other water-sports available from your hotel.
