ITINERARY INSPIRATION

CLASSIC BELIZE

As the early morning jungle erupts to the vaulting sound of howler monkeys screaming in the forest canopy, you wonder why your guide insisted on everyone talking softly!

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

In Lamanai it isn’t just monkeys that make a noise – the birds create a dawn chorus that is worth leaving your lodge for. Other attractions that will draw you into the forest include 3000 year old jungle-shrouded temples and sacred Mayan ritual spots like the Stone Sepulchre Cave in the Cayo District. Not to mention swimming in Roaring River and discovering the medicinal properties of many of the jungle’s indigenous plants.

And after the jungle? Relax on a splendid beach.
