There is nothing more beautiful than scenes of nature groomed and maintained by man. The Hummingbird Highway in Belize holds some of the most beautiful scenes while traveling. You can pass though tons of rows in citrus orchards.
On the far backdrop of your view there lies the beautiful Maya Mountains that peak over the jungle and waterfalls below. It’s just a constant picture of perfect scenes. In addition to all the scenes you must stop along your way for a new definition of comfort and style in the jungle. The most beautiful tree houses in Belize! These too have a majestic view of the Caves Branch River and the canopy. The sunrise, accommodations and the night time jungle noises are just a few things to give you an idea of what you are about to discover. Words cannot match your experience.
Last but not least – the adventures in Belize. Click here for a list of the most exciting adventures you can attempt. You can easily explore the classic Maya ceremonial chambers and huge caverns that contain artifacts and calcified skeletons. You can also visit the Blue Hole, which lies just across the way, it is 25 feet deep with a sapphire blue swimming hole in a 328 feet wide cenote formed due to the caving of the roof in the underground tributaries of the Sibun River. Visit a historical archeological site such as Xunantunich (Maiden of the Rock). This Mayan ruin tour is visually impressive: “El Castillo” is wrapped by magnificent hieroglyphs – it was built during the peak of the Mayan civilization.
You may climb to the top of “El Castillo”, the second tallest Maya temple in Belize, towering over 130 ft above the main plaza. From the top you will have breathtaking scenes of the Macal, Mopan and Belize River Valley below.
If you are not faint of heart, definitely try the Black Hole Drop. It is a large sinkhole where the ground has caved into an underlying cave, forming a huge hole in the ground that drops 300 feet. As you hike up the 4th hill you get your first view of the massive sinkhole and looking at the cliff face you begin to get butterflies about repelling off of it. You’ll then hike around the edge of the sinkhole to where your guides will rig a system of rappelling ropes for you to descend to the basin below.
As you lean over the edge you’ll feel a rush of adrenaline. This is by far the hardest part, learning to trust the rope. It’s a bit scary at first, but you’ll quickly get comfortable and then it’s a scenic descent 300 feet to the bottom. The views you’ll take in of the huge sinkhole and surrounding jungle are majestic. The shared adventure and exhilaration of the rappelling adventure has given it the status of “mother of all caves”.
This is not all though, you cannot forget about cave tubing, zip lining, bird watching, snorkeling, diving and much more.
