Jungle Hiking Tours

Belize Jungle Hiking Tours

With over 50 percent of our jewel covered by dense jungle and 80 percent of its rainforest remaining under protection, Belize has the most accessible jungle in the Western Hemisphere. We are home to several productive and thriving habitats harboring over 4,000 species of tropical flowers and over 500 species of birds. Two of the most popular hiking trails are located in southern Belize, just a few minutes away from Belizean Dreams Resort. The Cockscomb Basin Preserve is a 155 square mile reserve that was established to protect the local jaguar population.  The Mayflower Bocawina National Park is a 7100 acre tropical haven of untouched jungles, waterfalls, and Mayan sites.

Discover the world’s only jaguar preserve as you hike through the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary


Travel through southern Belize as you journey to the Maya Center that marks the entrance to the world’s only jaguar preserve, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary.  Enjoy shopping for souvenirs like hand-carved slate plaques, baskets, clothing, and jewelry made in the village by local Mayas.


Continue into the dense tropical rainforest of the Cockscomb Basin, which has a total protected area of over 120,000 acres. This sanctuary is home to jaguarundis, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys, and tapirs. Our guides will lead you through several trails, including one ending at Ben’s Bluff that has spectacular views of the entire basin. Cool off with a much-deserved soak in the river, and depending on the water level you may be able to river tube!

Mayflower Waterfall Hiking Tour
Scheduled Tour

Embrace the challenge of hiking the 1000ft Antelope Falls


Located in the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, less than 15 miles from Belizean Dreams Resort, our friendly guides will lead you to a pristine hike through the Belize jungle. During your hiking excursion to the top of the 1,000ft falls, explore unexcavated ceremonial Maya mounds with temples and ancient ball courts hidden beneath its surface. Archaeologists are still uncovering the history of what’s hidden below the overgrown jungle.

As you get deeper into the lush rainforest look out for orchids, birds, and exotic animals. The hike to Antelope Falls is truly worth the effort. As the 1,000ft fall cascades down the massive rock face, take in the expansive views over the jungle and out to the Caribbean Sea. End your hike with a refreshing swim in the oasis - a smaller fall that fills a beautiful emerald pool, at the very top of the waterfall offering you a breathtaking view.

Our favorite trip, however, was the hike through the rainforest at Bocawina National Park. It’s a challenging hike with rope climbing up the side of the mountain, ending at a beautiful waterfall. - TripAdvisor user
