No history of Belize would be complete without mentioning the Maya people. The Mayas are one of the oldest classical civilizations throughout Meso-America, with Belize being in the heartland of the ancient Maya world. A true testament to their enduring civilization is the architectural infrastructure – the Maya temples which have withstood the test of time and many of which remain intact today dotted along mainland Belize.
At Belizean Dreams Resort, the Mayan ruin tours are a must do for any traveler seeking a deep understanding of this ancient Maya civilization. We offer two Mayan ruin tours, take a journey across the Mopan River on a hand-cranked ferry to one of the most notable maya temples, Xunantunich or take a drive to southern Belize to explore the sites of Lubaantun & Nim Li Punit. Our tours to these Maya sites boasts several plazas, stelae, and magnificent views. Not to mention, the opportunity to climb one of the tallest recorded structures in Belize known as El Castillo!
Apart from the iconic Maya temples, other Maya sites include the sacred cave systems. Caving throughout the immense underground systems is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that is said to have been a halfway point between the living and the dead.
Among our Belize adventure tours is a unique combination excursion where you can enjoy both cave tubing and ziplining through the rainforest canopy. Traverse atop trees as you dangle 80 feet above the forest floor – skies the limit! After working up a sweat, begin your descent into the mysterious underworld with our cave tubing adventure.
Belize’s extensive cave systems and dense jungles make for the ultimate rappelling adventures. Adrenaline junkies are particularly fond of rappelling tours as it is a perfect mix of nature, thrill, and speed. Here at Belizean Dreams Resort we offer several rappelling adventure tours ranging from waterfall rappelling to black hole drops.
With a vast majority of Belize’s land protected as natural parks and reserves, there are a multitude of jungle hiking treks waiting to be explored. Two of the most popular jungle hiking trails are located in southern Belize, just a few minutes away from Belizean Dreams Resort and included in our tour options. These jungle hiking tours are Cockscomb Basin Preserve and the Mayflower Bocawina National Park.
In addition to Belize’s vast jungle are exotic wildlife species that can be found throughout the country. Scenic river tours are a great way to spot numerous animals in their natural habitat.
