It’s no secret that world-class divers and snorkelers prefer Belize because access to the Belize Barrier Reef, Glovers Reef Atoll, and also because challenges like the Blue Hole are irresistible. But for adventure-seekers who would as soon find their thrills without having to gear up for aquatic fetes, tourists are delighted to learn that there’s more to Belize than water sports. It’s a wonderland of fun, land-based activities—especially if you headquarter at Belizean Dreams Resort where an eclectic tour menu filled with choices includes the services of skilled tour guides who love to show guests “The other side of Belize”!
Belize River Tours
Stay dry within the confines of a boat while a symphony of wildlife welcomes you from the banks of Monkey River. This wildlife habitat offers a refuge for manatees, dolphins, iguanas, turtles, and birds, and if a stealthy croc happens to join the party, you’ll want to check it out. The stars of the Monkey River tour? Black howler monkeys, primates who could rival the loudest member of your family! Learn more here.
Jungle Hiking Tours
Jungle Hiking Tours offer you a fascinating peek at the dense jungle and rainforest that makes up a majority portion of the nation’s terrain, where 4,000 species of flowers, 500+ species of birds plus untold surprises require visitors to keep their eyes peeled for the next awe-inspiring sighting.
