We love kids and teens at Caves Branch!
Belize with Kids
One of the most fun, education, and healthy things you and your family can enjoy is a quality vacation to a natural paradise like Belize. The only English-speaking country in the region, Belize has a stable, democratic government, fabulous weather, and plenty of exciting activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Animal Encounters For Kids
Younger children may not have the patience to wait for wildlife to appear, so one of the best places to take them is the Community Baboon Sanctuary. Measuring over 20 square miles, the sanctuary is home to a large troop of Belize’s indigenous black howler monkeys (called “baboons” locally). The monkeys freely roam the grounds, and local village guides will ensure that you and the children get the best experience possible.
Another great place to learn about wildlife is the Belize Zoo. Despite its name, the Belize Zoo is an animal rescue center that was established in the 1980s to house injured and abandoned animals. The only wheelchair-accessible facility of its kind in the country, the Belize Zoo allows even young children to get a close look at native animals like tapirs, harpy eagles, giant iguanas, snakes, crocodiles, and jaguars.
Action Adventure For Kids
Being outdoors in the warm sunshine means leaving smartphones behind as the whole family enjoys exciting adventures. Whether it’s exploring underground labyrinths that the ancient Maya used to perform religious ceremonies, zip lining through the jungle canopy, or gently floating on an inner tube down a pristine river, there’s enough to stimulate young and older children alike.
The Caves Branch Adventure company is dedicated to preserving and promoting the beauty and diversity of wildlife and native fauna in Belize. Set on a gorgeous 78-square mile spread in western Belize, Caves Branch organizes family tours, including horseback riding, walking through the jungle (including special night walks), and cave tubing.
The Caves Branch Lodge is perfectly suited for families, with luxury tree houses high up in the air and exotic outdoor showers. As a family-run and family-friendly lodge, children 9 and under stay (and play!) for free.
Sun and Sea For Kids
With more than 200 miles of Caribbean coastline, there are many wonderful and exciting activities for children and adults to enjoy. Older kids can participate in more adventurous activities like kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, and sailing while younger children can use a snorkel mask to marvel at the myriad of colorful underwater creatures that inhabit the coral reefs.
To make the most of a family vacation to Belize, Caves Branch offers guests a jungle and sea package that includes the best of both worlds. The package includes full-day tours to the top attractions, meals, drinks, and even a massage for the parents.
