Belize: Rainforests, Reefs, & Ruins

Intimate, relaxed and easy to reach, the Caribbean country of Belize makes off-the-beaten-path adventures utterly approachable with Way to Go Tours.

Rainforest Surprises

Hear the distinctive call of howler monkeys as you cross tropical treetops on an aerial trek through Nohoch Che’en archaeological reserve — also home to intriguing limestone caves through which you can glide freely on inner tubes. More remarkable moments await on a floating adventure along Monkey River in southern Belize, where brilliantly feathered birds alight on branches and crocodiles lurk under the waters.

Rainbow Reefs

Through crystal-clear waters, an elusive barracuda catches your eye on a guided snorkel excursion among the Belize Barrier Reef, the largest of its kind in the Northern Hemisphere. Temperate waters display a kaleidoscope of colors among hundreds of species of reef fish, delicate sea fans and majestic coral gardens. Venture by boat through mangrove forests where you’ll spot giant-yet-endearing manatees feeding on aquatic grasses.

Mayan Ruins

Only recently unearthed, Belize’s Mayan ruins are blissfully peaceful archeological sites waiting to be explored. Steep staircases are carved into stone temples at Altun Ha, north of Belize City. A scenic drive west to the Cayo District reveals El Castillo, a crumbling pyramid in the ancient city of Xunantunich. Pair your excursion with a visit to the Belize Zoo for close-up encounters with rescued wildlife like a resident jaguar.
