Sun writer has to see it to Belize it

Follow Sun Media national online editor Jenny Potter as she explores underground rivers, meets exotic wildlife and tries her hand at sea kayaking in Belize.

This month, she’ll be travelling off the beaten path with Island Expeditions and writing about her adventures along the way.

Belize is steeped in Mayan history and culture as well as packed with lush tropical rain forests filled with wildlife.

In her first few days, Jenny will meet face-to-face with the elusive jaguar with the help of a cat rescue program. The largest cat in the western hemisphere, the jaguar populations have dwindled due to deforestation and hunting. Belize is attempting to rescue and preserve the animals who are known to go after livestock.

Belize is also home to awe-inspiring underground rivers that flow through a series of caves. Jenny will have a chance to explore the natural limestone caves by floating through them down the rivers.

The last leg will be spent soaking up the sun on a private island in Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve. There the group will sleep in elevated tents on the beach and learn how to snorkel in the protected coral reefs filled with hundreds of tropical fish.

Check online for stories and photos sent straight from Belize as Jenny shares her adventures in the diverse Central American country. Later you can read about the experience in more detail in the Sunday Sun Travel pages.
