Belize City landmarks
- Boat ride down the New River to visit Lamanai Ruins:
A branch of the New River splits Belize City in two, with the North side full of markets, shops, and museums and the South side marked by upscale riverfront homes of the city's elite. Farther along, the city gives way to the beautiful natural scenery of the surrounding jungle as you approach Lamanai.
Day 3 :
Belize - San Ignacio
- Travel to San Ignacio:
Protected by forests and rivers, Mayan San Ignacio was one of the centers of rebellion against Spanish conquistadors -- in 1641, Mayan priests staged a parody of the Mass to incense the missionaries, and later the city befriended the independent British loggers who settled in defiance of the Spanish. Today the city maintains its independent, laidback charm.
- Canopy tour:
See Belize's diverse and colorful wildlife as you cross bridges, cables, and platforms suspended high in the rainforest canopy.
- Explore River Caves in Cayo District:
Grab an inner tube and explore the caves considered sacred by the ancient Mayans. You'll see amazing rock formations, archaeological remains, and more as you glide down underground rivers.

- Xunantunich Ruins guided visit:
Explore the 6 plazas and more than 26 temples and palaces that make up this ancient Mayan city. Head to the steps of El Castillo, the largest pyramid and second tallest structure in Belize, and see if you can spot the “stone woman” with the fire red eyes that is said to haunt the site. Climb to the very top of the village for a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside – you can even see all the way to the Belize and Guatemala border!
