7 Epic Belize Adventure Tours to Add to Your Bucket List in 2018

7 Epic Belize Adventure Tours

Belize offers plenty of thrills, spills, and chills to get your heart racing. If you are interested in adventure and exploring, then we suggest you book your flight to Belize ASAP and start working on crossing off these items from your bucket list:

The Sacred ATM Cave


Abandoned and forgotten for more than 1,000 years, the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave was used by ancient Maya priests to conduct some of their most solemn ceremonies, including sacrificing children and adults to appease the Maya Gods.

Today, visitors can see more than 1,400 artifacts, including an elaborately carved altar. But the top attraction is the “Crystal Maiden,” the bones of a young adult which have fused with the glittering minerals in the cave.

Xunantunich Maya Ruins

One of the largest ancient Maya cities ever discovered, Xunantunich was once a powerhouse, combating with the nearby cities of Caracol and Tikal for control of the region. According to archaeologists, Xunantunich may have been occupied as early as 1000 BC and its largest architecture that we see today began to be built in the 7th century AD.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

5 Fantastic Belize Escapes for People Who Hate Winter

One of the fastest-growing new water sports, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) involves standing upright on a custom board to explore otherwise inaccessible waterways, river estuaries, and lagoons.

Enjoy SUP in pristine locations such as Lighthouse Reef to experience the diversity and beauty of marine wildlife in Belize in a truly unique way.

Paddling or Swimming a Wild River Through the Rainforests of Southern Belize

Sittee River

Few experiences can compare to kayaking or swimming down a pristine river through the thick jungles of southern Belize.

Experienced, local Maya experts in the flora and fauna of the rainforest teach valuable insights into the scenery along the way while the shifting currents and exhilarating whitewater sections make this a true must-do adventure for nature lovers.

Go Kayaking at Glover’s Reef Atoll

Glover's Reef Atoll

Located on the far reaches of the outer reef, Glover’s Atoll and the surrounding islands are stunningly beautiful sites teeming with marine wildlife, including migrating whale sharks that visit the region every spring.

The crystal clear transparency of the waters combined with the natural beauty of the coral make this an unforgettable experience.

Scuba Dive the Pristine Barrier Reef

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Belize Barrier Reef is the second-largest barrier reef in the world, second only to Australia’s Great Barrier.

The reef is home to dozens of world-class scuba diving sites, including the famed Belize Blue Hole that was one of Jacques Cousteau’s favorite places to dive.

Go Cave Tubing in Belize

An experience like no other, cave tubing involves boarding inflatable inner tubes  to explore vast underground rivers.

Belize is renowned for its beautiful, untouched nature. That’s why it’s been nicknamed, “The Jewel.” Whether you’re interested in lazing on the beach of an offshore island or spelunking the depths of a sacred cave, there’s always an adventure awaiting in Belize.
