Belize: Ruins, Caves, Jungle Trails - Jan 15 - 24, 2011

The journey takes us to San Ignacio, the center of the Cayo District, where we will stay in a lovely small hillside resort that has been carefully selected for its high standards and cleanliness. The resort overlooks the town with a distant vista of the Maya Mountain Range. Here, we will explore Mayan ruins and fantastic caves, one time via a canoe and one time hiking. A half-day canoeing down the Macal River will give us a chance to see huge iguanas and many species of birds. It will allow us the true Belize experience and personal attention as we become acquainted with the gracious local people and their culture.

All of our activities will be conducted in small groups with licensed local guides to provide the maximum educational content and safety. One of the highlights of our week will be a day trip to Guatemala to visit the world famous ruins at Tikal, part of the Guatemala National Park.

Imagine paying up to 86% LESS to stay in some of the nicest resorts in the world?              Click Here!   
There we will have the added benefit of a Guatemalan guide to steer us through the jungle trails surrounding these vast ruins, perhaps pointing out the occasional howler monkey, as well as, educating us in Mayan history culture and symbolism. Our last three nights will be spent at a resort on the beach of the Caribbean Sea. Snorkeling, biking, kayaking, canoeing and afternoon tea are all provided at no extra cost. Free time can be spent with a good book in a shady hammock, enjoying the infinity pool overlooking the Maya Mountains or joining the leader to explore Hopkins by a short bike ride or San Ignacio, a short walk away. Perhaps, we'll visit an Amish farmers market.

Planned Vacations, What a Concept !

Sure, there are maps and tour guides and the Chamber of Commerce, but wouldn't it be nice if we had trips already planned and we knew what we wanted to do at those locations by others recommendations. I have been leading vacation trips with OutsideNE and the Appalachian Mountain Club for over ten years.
