Test your limits on a heart-pounding adventure in Belize.
Travel, at its best, is more than just getting away from home and relaxing in a hotel. The best vacations are the ones where you experience something new, doing something you've never tried before. And there's no better place for adventure than in Belize.
If you've been yearning for true adventure in the heart of Paradise, choose from one of these amazing adventure tours in Belize:
The only way to get to the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave is by hiking through the jungle and then swimming across a spring-fed pool of ice cold water. But located deep in the labyrinthine passages of ATM Cave are the remains of dozens of children and adults who were sacrificed by ancient Maya priests more than 1,000 years ago.
Deep Diving the Belize Blue Hole
Rated by Jacques Cousteau as one of his favorite dive sites in the world, the Belize Blue Hole is only open for experienced divers. Created after rising meltwater submerged a vast cave system some 10,000 years ago, the Belize Blue Hole is a truly special dive site.
The Black Hole Drop
Cave Branch's signature adventure tour, the Black Hole Drop will force you to face your deepest fears.
After hiking up a steep path to reach a cave, the adventure begins when participants have to strap into safety gear to rappel down through an enormous hole in the cave floor. Due to the cave's height above the surrounding jungle canopy, participants descend DOWN into the treetops, slowly making their way into the legendary black hole, so named because its inky depths admit no sunlight.
After a short hike through the jungle to get to the Caves Branch River, participants board inflatable inner tubes. The tour gets interesting when the river goes underground, revealing many ancient artifacts and long-lost secrets of the ancient Maya.
Exploring a Long-Lost Maya City
Long before the arrival of the Europeans, the ancient Maya built immense stone cities in the jungle with populations bigger than those in London or Paris. But for reasons nobody quite understands, the ancient Maya abandoned their cities more than 1,000 years ago.
Nighttime Jungle Hike
More than 80% of the animals in the jungle are only active at nighttime, so this tour gives you the chance to see some of the region's most interesting denizens, including tapirs, tarantulas, and even the occasional jaguar.
The top adventure jungle lodge in Belize is Caves Branch Lodge. Home to the country's largest botanical garden and innovative luxury tree houses, Caves Branch is the perfect destination for travelers wanting an adventure vacation.
