What to Do in the Rainforest in Belize

WestJet Magazine, the in-flight publication of WestJet Airlines, recently recommended visiting the rainforest in Belize. WestJet currently offers non-stop service from Toronto and Calgary to Belize. In the article, WestJet magazine described some of the many exciting things to do in the rainforest in Belize.

If you are interested in exploring the rainforest in Belize, here are four things that WestJet magazine recommended that you include on your vacation:

Night Hiking

By day, hikers can marvel at the variety of trees and flowering plants in the rainforest. But it’s only at night when the jungle truly comes alive. Lodges like Cave Branch offer guided night hikes through the rainforest, giving visitors a unique chance to glimpse deer, tapirs, wild boar, tarantulas, red-eyed tree frogs, and occasionally even jaguars that call the rainforest home.

Exploring Maya Ruins

WestJet Magazine described how visitors can climb ancient pyramids, explore ball courts and wide plazas, and enjoy panoramic views from buildings that are still the tallest man-made structures in the country at sites like Xunantunich, Caracol, and Tikal in neighboring Guatemala.

Cave Tubing

Only in Belize can visitors enjoy the unique pleasure of going cave tubing. The Caves Branch River spends much of its length underground and was once used by the ancient Maya to perform religious ceremonies. Today, visitors can ride inflatable inner tubes to sail down the subterranean passages of the Caves Branch River past underground waterfalls and ancient Maya religious sites.

Staying at a Belize Jungle Lodge

According to WestJet Magazine, the best way to experience the sights and sounds of the jungle is by staying at a modern jungle lodge like Caves Branch. Caves Branch has luxury tree houses that give guests a 360-degree of the rainforest from a comfortable perch high up in the canopy.

“Located in an unspoiled section of the Belizean rainforest, we are very proud to have been so prominently featured in WestJet Magazine,” said Rhoda Gill of the Caves Branch Lodge. “At Caves Branch, we believe that the splendor and diversity of life in the rainforest should be protected and shared with visitors so that is will be here for generations to come.”

Travelers who want to experience the best of the rainforest should book their Belize vacation with the Caves Branch Lodge.

Caves Branch Lodge also offers Belize jungle and sea Belize vacations for travelers who want to experience the best of both worlds.
