It’s an Adventure, not a Tour, when Island Expeditions is Your Belize Host!
Why do pioneers intrigue us? Because they’re daring. Risk-takers. Sometimes, they’re fearless. But, in truth, most pioneers happen to be romantic souls eager to find out what’s over the next mountain or beyond the next island—at least that’s how the crew at Island Expeditions feel.
What’s not romantic about a couple of inquisitive people taking a road trip back in 1986, deciding that they get on well enough to head south for a summer of water sports—and winding up in Belize where they found nirvana? What the owners of Island Expeditions found when they arrived in Belize 30 years ago was straight out of a jungle movie.
Every inch of this Caribbean nation was lavished (read that overrun!) with trees, plants, flowers and vines, kissed by sultry sea waters and lavished with this hemisphere’s most extensive collection of Mayan ruins. What’s not to love? Happenstance landed these pioneers in the town of Dangriga and they never left after being charmed by the people, the sounds, the food and the music.
Does living in an area for 30 years qualify a team to lead the best expeditions? You bet your Creole cooking it does. With little more than a great idea, a passion for the land, the desire to wear shoes only when required and the dream of making Island Expeditions (IE) “the best adventure travel company in Belize and throughout Central America,” these pioneers put down roots and their clients are all beneficiaries of their passion and expertise. Here’s why you should consider joining their extended family next time you need Belize tour services:
– They are small. And that’s a good thing. If you’ve ever booked a tour run by a mega-company, you know how easy it can be to fall through the cracks. That’s not their style. They have satisfied more than 20,000 travelers and remain committed to being a small agency with big service goals.
-They are smart. Do they know Belize like the back of their hands? You bet. But they don’t act like know-it-alls, because they want every guest to feel that, when they book, this is their travel adventure, not theirs. Their physical skills are born of having explored every inch of Belize and surrounding waters and they only hire staff who meet their standards.
-They are buoyant. Sorry–a little nautical humor required when promoting their kayaking and snorkeling expeditions. But they should want to brag a bit about their experience. They are skilled at leading all-inclusive trips to remote coral atolls, arranging sea kayak journeys offering island-to-island paddling fun and have Belize’s beautiful barrier reef to show you!
-They are guest-focused. Their careful assessment of guest’s interests and activity levels allow them to recommend exactly the type of adventure destined to leave travelers both breathless and blissful. They offer a wide-range of experiences in keeping with the desires and sensibilities of every traveler.
– They are dependable. Travelers expect to have confidence in guides taking them into exotic environs like jungles, rivers, rain forests, remote Maya sites and caves that are as thrilling to see as they are to explore, and they have no shortage of recommendations from tourists who return to them, year-after-year, and have done so for decades.
-They are in it for the right reasons. Showing off their beloved Belize means that they go above and beyond what’s required to treat their clients like royalty. Artfully balancing your departure and arrival dates with their recommendations for the tours most likely to thrill you, it’s their job to help plan your tour around your schedule, not theirs. They even offer discounts to travelers booking several trips with their crew.
