All of our trips are completely customized, but we want to give you a taste of what you can expect with Preferred.
The ultimate Belizean adventure, encompassing the ancient Maya culture, the Cayo District jungle and the beaches of Ambergris Caye.
Explore the world's first jaguar preserve. An experienced guide will lead you through the hiking trails, pointing out medicinal plants, herbs and animal life. You can also swim under waterfalls and go river tubing. Embark on a wildlife excursion of Monkey River, observing Howler monkeys, tropical birds, crocodiles and many other wildlife species. Stop at the village of Monkey River to place your lunch order and then drive upriver. Go deeper in the jungle to hike through the rainforest with your local guide, exploring nature, flora and fauna. On your return, you will stop in the village to enjoy a lunch of local Creole food. Afterwards, your boat captain will take you through mangrove estuaries at the lagoon, home to the elusive local manatee. Spend the night in Placencia.
Enjoy a day of leisure or arrange an optional tour - perhaps scuba, snorkeling or diving.
Transfer for the scenic 3-hour drive to the Mountain Pine Ridge of the Cayo District. Stop in the little town of San Ignacio, situated between the Macal and Mopan Rivers, then sleep in Cayo District.
Venture out on a full-day private canoe trip to Xunantunich Maya Temples and Barton Creek Caves. The Xunantunich ruins sit inside the western border of Belize to Guatemala. Before reaching the entrance of the city, board a 19th-century ferry across the Mopan River, which gives a panoramic view of the Cayo District and Guatemala. Next, continue to Barton Creek Cave in Amish territory. Equipped with canoes and high-powered lights, paddle into Xibalba within the Barton Creek Cave system. As you glide through the caves, you will be dazzled by the crystalline rock formations and Mayan artifacts tucked away in overhead alcoves. Return to your hotel for the night.
Enjoy a day to relax or arrange an optional tour.
Mid-morning, return to Belize City via the Western Highway. If you wish, it is possible to arrange a stop for cave-tubing and zip lining before getting to the city. Upon arriving in Belize City, take a short commuter flight to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Transfer to your preferred hotel of choice.
