Day by Day

Arrive at the Belize International Airport where you will connect for a scenic 20 minute flight to the coastal town of Dangriga. You’ll then be met by an Island Expeditions’ representative and transferred by road to Bocawina Rainforest Lodge in the foothills of the Maya Mountains. After checking into our accommodations we enjoy a ‘Welcome to Belize Dinner’ at the rainforest at the resort’s acclaimed restaurant “The Wild Fig”, with our fellow travellers and our Belizean guide team. This day is your day to arrive before the trip starts, meet your fellow travellers, and acclimatize to your new tropical environment. Transfers from the airport and lodging are included.

Overnight in Bocawina Rainforest Lodge

We wake up to the sounds of the tropical rainforest, enjoy an early breakfast and then continue to the Wild South of
Belize. We travel overland through the countryside to the remote Maya village of Santa Theresa. We enjoy a traditional meal prepared at the home of a local family before continuing another 30 minutes to our put-in on the Moho River. Our guides teach you the fundamentals of handling the inflatable kayaks in moving water before starting our journey down one of Belize’s most beautiful rainforest rivers to our first river camp.

Accommodation: Jungle River Camp

Today we break contact completely with the outside world as we follow the Moho River through canyons and lush rainforest. Each bend reveals the dynamic nature of the river from calm meandering water that reflects the intense green of the jungle, to stretches of rapids, pour-overs and spectacular waterfalls. During the trip our Mayan guides assist us with improving our moving water paddle skills, and also provide an understanding of the ecology of the rainforest, learning about the habits of the wildlife, and gaining an appreciation for the rich Mayan folklore which adds so much to our experience in the jungle.

Accommodation: Jungle River Camp

In the morning, as we descend out of the Maya Mountains the river changes its nature, widens and begins to meander into the coastal plains. On route back to Bocawina we stop for lunch at the ancient Mayan city of Lubaantun, a beautiful ridgetop site overlooking the Columbia River Valley. Settle into your room and pamper yourself with all the amenities of our boutique lodge. We’ll gather at the bar before enjoying dinner at the Wild Fig restaurant.

Accommodation: The Bocawina Lodge

Even though we’ve changed from a riverside camp to a comfortable lodge, we’re still in the midst of a pristine rainforest. Today we’ll hike to hidden waterfalls with astounding views all the way to the Caribbean Sea, you can choose to rappel down a waterfall and, one of the special attractions of Bocawina Lodge, a thrilling two and a half mile rainforest canopy zipline course on the lodge property.

Accommodation: Overnight in The Bocawina Lodge

Today we drive north to the coastal town of Dangriga. Here we board a charter boat to our private
Basecamp on Southwest Caye, Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, we receive an introduction to your new tropical marine environment and then settle into our ocean view tent cabanas. Our guides will then conduct professional instruction to teach you the fundamentals of sea kayaking, snorkeling, and tropical water safety. After the workshop, enjoy a paddle to a nearby patch reef and start exploring some of the 700 snorkel sites Glover’s Reef Atoll has to offer.
Over our 4 days here our itinerary is flexible in order to accommodate individual and group preferences. Activities include paddling sea kayaks, snorkeling the inner and outer walls of the reef, stand-up paddle boarding, traditional Belizean handline fishing and learning to sail a kayak. In the mornings and evenings our guides share their knowledge of Belize, its unique marine environments and cultures of the Caribbean with a focus on the Garifuna people of Belize. There are many different activities that you can choose from and always for those looking to add down time into their adventure there is no better place in Belize to kick back in a hammock and relax with a good book!

Accommodation: Glover’s Reef Basecamp

Wake early on our final morning, grab your coffee and watch the sunrise over the atoll. Our boat charter departs mid-morning to take you back to the mainland, arriving at approximately noon.  You will then board an internal flight back to Belize International Airport where your trip finishes.
