Day 2

Full Day Tour to Caracol

Today you can enjoy a visit to one of Belize’s most important Mayan archeological sites. Discovered in 1938 and later explored in the 1950’s, Caracol was thought to be little more than a Maya ceremonial center. It was not until more extensive excavation efforts began in 1985 that the importance and expanse of Caracol became known. In 1986, a round, elaborately carved altar stone was uncovered which described a victory by Caracol over Tikal, once considered to be the most powerful Maya metropolis. This discovery filled an important missing piece of Maya history, covering approximately 140 years in the Middle Classic period, and positioned Caracol as the “Supreme” Maya city. The largest pyramid at Caracol, the Canaa, (Maya for “sky place”) rises 140 feet and is the tallest man-made structure in all of Belize.

Duration8.5 Hours

Day at Leisure

Black Rock Lodge is a wonderland of adventure, and you won’t have to wander far to find something exciting to do. It’s quite easy to do so when you have a rushing river, a tropical rainforest, and a national park all in your backyard.

Portofino Beach Resort is tucked away, perched on a stretch of private white sandy beach, dotted with swaying palm trees. It’s the perfect place to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and enjoy calm moments with nature and sand between your toes.

Duration4 Nights
Day 5

Day 6

Half Day Tour to Manatee Reef + Coral Gardens

This amazing Snorkelling Tour is a half day of whimsical adventure along the Barrier Reef’s fore reef still within the area of Ambergris Caye. As we cruise along the reef we visit two beautiful sites.

Coral Gardens dubbed as such for being an important habitat of a concentration of Staghorn and Elkhorn coral with scatters of a variety of different stony coral species. The site is regularly studied and regarded as an important refuge of these type of coral in the Caribbean. Adding to its whimsy, the variety of fish specie darting within the coral florets!

The two sites are in fairly close proximity, with Manatee Reef a bit further southbound.
Manatee Reef lies at the edge of a natural reef channel, with rich flow of nutrients for the lushness of the environment. Large heads of coral formations cause an interesting topography providing crevices for juvenile marine life to take shelter. These interesting coral mounds are scattered along the channel banks covering a large expanse of otherwise sandy bottoms, and further enhanced by the occasional swaying marine shrubbery as it’s caressed by the channels gentle current. Of interest is the proximity to a natural manatee habitat, thus earning the site’s nickname. As such many a times there’s the possibility of catching a glimpse of these gentle creatures if they happen to be in the area, or decide to cruise in. At that, a great bonus to the variety of marine life already dancing within the thickets of coral formations.

Both sites lie within the fore reef “inside the reef” and at most 6-12ft in depth at its various points, offering a relatively leisurely snorkel experience.
