Fun, adventure and discovery await your family in the jungles of Belize. On this weeklong adventure you will seek the secrets of the ancient Maya civilization, who first settled in Belize over three thousand years ago. Explore the ruins at Lamanai, Cahal Pech, and Xunantunich, where you can climb the pyradmidal temples, learn about the intersection between sport and religion, and imagine life in a civilization that vanished long before Columbus arrived in the New World. You will also have the chance to explore several of the caves in western Belize. Swim, paddle, and float though rock tunnels, admire the stalactites overhead, and shine your headlamp over the walls to find Maya artifacts. Throughout the trip, keep a lookout for abundant birds, reptiles, monkeys, and elusive rain forest mammals. You will have a superb Belizean guide who will help you learn the wildlife and help unravel the mysteries of the Mayans. And the food at your three beautiful ecolodge locations is superb, varied and delicious for adventurers of all ages.
