Next you will travel into the heart of the the Mayflower Bocawina National Park and stay at an eco lodge. Discover the tropical rainforest by hiking or gliding through the jungle canopy on a zipline. On the final part of the trip you will travel south to a region of unspoiled wilderness and break contact with the outside world.

At night you will camp by the river and learn about the rich Mayan folklore and ecology of the rainforest from the local guides.

itinerary (1K)

Day 0 :

Day 0 is your day to arrive before the trip starts, meet your fellow guests, and acclimatize to your new tropical environment. We include the domestic flight from Belize International to Dangriga, a casual dinner and orientation with your fellow adventurers. 

Accommodation: (Lodge)
Meals: Dinner

Day 1 :

We leave Dangriga at 8 am and travel by boat to our Adventure Basecamp on Glover’s Reef. Glover’s is one of only four atolls in the Caribbean Sea and is truly one of the most spectacular marine environments in Belize. Due to its isolation from the mainland the waters are exceptionally clear with an incredibly rich reef system that offers some of the best kayaking, snorkeling, and diving in the Caribbean. After our sea kayak and snorkel introduction in the warm waters we venture out to explore the atoll.

Accommodation: Glover's Reef Base Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 :

We will spend the day exploring the atoll, snorkeling the inner lagoons or outer reef walls; practicing some SUP moves (our guides are certified sea kayak and SUP instructors); trying our hands at Belizean-style hand-line fishing for Barracuda, snapper or grouper; or just taking in the awesome beauty of this remote tropical marine wilderness.

Accommodation: Glover's Reef Base Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 :

For our last morning on the reef, the choice of activity is yours. You may want to cast a fly on the reef flats for bonefish, snorkel the outside walls, or sea kayak, or develop your SUP technique with a downwind paddle. Our motorboat charter will arrive after lunch and transport us back to the mainland. Our next destination is Bocawina Resort in the wild rainforests of the southern Maya Mountains. This is an intimate eco-lodge situated in the heart of a protected National Park. After settling in, we’ll walk a trail to nearby Mayan Ruins and begin our immersion to the tropical rainforest.

Accommodation: Bocawina Rainforest Resort
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 :

Waking up to the sounds of the tropical rainforest is a pure delight, with the chatter of parrots and parakeets flying overhead, the fresh morning air scented with tropical blossoms, and the expectation of an exciting adventure-filled day ahead. Our journey will take us to hidden waterfalls with astounding views all the way to the Caribbean Sea...if you choose, you can rappel 250 feet down the waterfalls! Swim in emerald green pools and learn about the jungle ecology from our guides. 

One of the special attractions of Bocawina Lodge is a thrilling two and a half mile rainforest canopy zipline course which for many is the highlight of their stay. In the evening it’s time to relax and recount the day’s adventures over a pre-dinner drink in the bar.

Accommodation: Bocawina Rainforest Resort
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 & 6:

Mayflower National Park to the Wild South! We travel south to a region of isolated Mayan villages lying amongst an unspoiled tropical wilderness. Once on the river, your guides will conduct an orientation on the inflatable kayaks and moving water so you can navigate the rapids and pour-overs. 

For two days we break contact completely with the outside world and become a part of the mist shrouded rainforest. We’ll follow the Moho River through spectacular canyons and lush rainforest. Each bend of the river reveals the wonder of the rainforest as we navigate stretches of rapids, pour-overs, and waterfalls on your descent from the Maya Mountains to the sea. 

Our Mayan guides share their deep knowledge of the rainforest and connect you with their timeless insights of Mayan folklore intertwined with the river and land.

Accommodation: Jungle River Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 :

As we continue our journey we leave the Maya Mountains and enter the coastal plains, the nature of the river changes to calm meandering waters reflecting the intense green of the jungle. Once off the river we connect with a domestic flight to Belize City and the Biltmore hotel for our last night.

Accommodation: (Biltmore Plaza Hotel)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 8:

Connect with your return flight home or continue the adventure with a journey to some Mayan ruins or a beach resort on an outlying caye. Our Travel Specialists can assist with ideas for the rest of your time in Belize.

When Planning Your Trip...Think of "Day 0"

With Island Expeditions Co. a seven day trip means seven days in the field, not 2 days of airline travel and 5 days of vacation. So on all IEC adventures we meet you the day before the trip is scheduled to begin. This is "Day 0" and has been conceived for your convenience and comfort. "Day 0" is your day to arrive in Belize before the trip starts, meet your fellow travelers, and to acclimatize to your new tropical environment. From there be it a short flight or a boat charter, your transportation to meet up with your group on this day and your accommodation on this night are included in the trip cost.

Note:

This is one of our most adventurous trips. It takes place in a remote wilderness region of Belize. Participants need to be in good physical condition and ready to handle the unexpected. Weather conditions can greatly affect water levels and hiking trails into the river and may increase the level of difficulty. We also believe that the remoteness and variability of conditions are what make this trip the best of its kind in Belize. Trip itineraries may vary significantly depending on water levels.
