Waterfall Rappelling and Zipline Adventure at Bocawina Rainforest

Waterfall Rappelling and Zipline Adventure at Bocawina Rainforest

Located in Belize’s southeastern Stann Creek District, the Mayflower Bocawina Park is 7,000 acres of pristine tropical evergreen forest. A gorgeous natural paradise, the park is home to exciting adventures like rappelling down a waterfall and sailing through the forest canopy on some of the longest zip lines in the country.

Why You Have to Do The Water Rapelling & Zipline Tours On Your Vacation

Bocawina Falls is the signature cascade in the Mayflower Bocawina Park, a majestic waterfall that spills into a series of crystal blue pools ideal for swimming. Visitors can enjoy a thrilling descent down the side of the falls to reach the lodge some 1,000 below.

Nearby are a series of platforms high up in the forest. Once at the top, visitors can sail across more than 2.5 miles of cable to enjoy the thrill of the longest zip line course in Belize. The zip line course has a total of 12 platforms separated into eight different runs that are ideal for participants of all skill and bravery levels. The longest single stretch of zip line is 2,500 feet.

Where in Belize Is the Bocawina Rainforest Located?

The Mayflower Bocawina Park is located in the Stann Creek District of Belize. The park is administered by a non-profit organization headquartered in Silk Grass Village.

When Is the Best Time to visit the Bocawina Rainforest

Open year-round, visitors can tour the beautiful Mayflower Bocawina Forest at any time, weather permitting. The entrance fee is $5 USD for visitors and $2 BZD for Belize residents. The zip-line and water rappelling tours are additional cost.

How to Get to the Bocawina Rainforest

The best way to enter the park is via a four-mile long access road that connects the park to Mile Marker 6 of the Southern Highway just a short distance south of where it intersects with the Hummingbird Highway.

Best Way to Experience Waterfall Rappelling and Zipline Adventure at Bocawina

Inside the park are several Maya sites, including Mayflower Plaza and Maintzunun temple. These and other waterfalls like Three Sisters, Peck, Big Drop, and Antelope Falls are worth a visit in between rappelling and zip lining.

Visitors choosing to rappel down the side of Bocawina Falls can choose between the full 1,000-foot descent or starting at a point around 500 feet and continuing to the bottom. For more adventurous visitors, it is possible to enjoy the zip line experience during the night, especially recommended during nights when there is a full moon.
