Belize Waterfall and Nature Tours
Nature and Waterfall Tours
These are the some of the Belize waterfall and nature tours we offer in our Belize Vacation Packages. Although we can book individual tours and activities – we encourage you to choose one of our carefully planned packages. This allows you to experience as much of Belize as possible and get the most of your stay and money.
Big Rock Falls
"Nature's Spa" is the secluded swimming hole of your dreams
Rio On Pools
What a delight to slide over natural water slides, sit under waterfalls, and swim in a variety of pools! Unpaved roads that wind through two picturesque Mayan villages contribute to this wonderful adventure. On the way back through the Mayan village of San Antonio, you'll stop at a very special place called the Garcia Sister's Museum and Craft Center. Here, the industrious sisters work to carve slate to sell to tourists. The museum includes many of their larger carvings and some other items from the Mayan culture. These charming young ladies explain to visitors how they collect and carve the slate.
Butterfly farm and Natural History Museum
The beautiful Blue Morpho butterfly can be viewed in all its stages of development at the Butterfly Farm. The Natural History Museum is small and specific to our Cayo District. It encompasses culture, archaeology, and biological sciences in its enlightening and professional displays. Iguana Farm: An iguana farm is close to Maya Mountain Lodge. Here the baby iguanas are hatched and raised for release into the wild.
Upper Macal River Jungle Expedition... Waterfall and More
An early morning departure from the Lodge will take you on a one hour scenic drive to a remote private nature reserve located in an area that, until recently, was inaccessible to visitors. Here you will hike through pristine jungle trails to the river banks where your boat awaits. Once aboard you will embark on a relaxed journey, navigating upstream on the Macal River where you will explore breath-taking waterfalls and natural swimming holes. Throughout your journey you will have the opportunity to hike in beautiful jungle trails, learn about the vast flora and fauna, swim and be inspired by these beautiful surroundings. Wildlife abounds here and an occasional encounter with rare wildlife such as the Keel Billed Toucan, Monkeys and even Tapirs can be anticipated. Along the tour you will encounter and explore three majestic wall falls, enjoying swimming in Belize’s most beautiful natural swimming pool. After a fun day of swimming, hiking and exploring you will conclude your day’s adventure with another 40 minute hike where you will meet your driver who will transport you back to the hotel.
Five Blues National Park
After driving down the picturesque Hummingbird highway halfway to Dangriga, you'll enjoy the trails and a lovely swim in a lake surrounded by cave-riddled karst outcrops. This national park is founded on a strong community-based eco-tourism initiative with simple bed and breakfasts hosted by local villagers. The villagers themselves initiated the formation of the park.
Crooked Tree National Park
Located on the northern highway about 1 hour north of Belize City, this park is a premier wetlands area with excellent birding from either the shore or from small boats. The small visitor center is excellent. The once-isolated village is reached today by a causeway across the lagoon.
This reserve has set an example to the world of how cooperation can allow the development of a revenue-generating resource. The farmers of this area, with the advise of a biologist researcher, determined to establish a community reserve for the howler monkeys by agreeing to some guidelines for the protection of the monkeys. Now guests are given guided tours to see the monkeys. They may also enjoy the visitor center and museum and maybe overnight in simple bed & breakfast accommodations in the villager's homes.
We look forward to seeing you soon on one of our Belize Waterfall and Nature Tours.
