Tour #1: Book a Placencia Village tour where a guide will take you back to the area’s “fishing village” roots. Meet welcoming people and get to know the laid-back vibe that makes this village a one-of-a-kind community.
Tour #2: Go zip lining. Sail over the South Stann Creek River tree canopy at the speed of gravity. Hang out with birds up there and see what you can spot on the ground as you traverse the jungle from on high.
Tour #3: Try river tubing. Barefoot delivers you to the South Stann Creek River, you climb onboard a hefty inner tube and float through unspoiled waters as you are surrounded by lush jungle everywhere you look.
Tour #4: See the mother of waterfalls. Having conquered river tubing and zip lining, step up to the ultimate rush at the Maya King Waterfall. The water is icy. The thrill is amazing. Who knew a swim could be this exhilarating?
Tour #5: Visiting Belize without seeing the Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary and Jaguar Preserve is like visiting Manhattan and skipping the Empire State Building. More waterfalls, trails, animals and river tubing opportunities await you.
Tour #6: Meet Belize’s colorful Garifuna people and give your heart away. This off-the-beaten-track tour has it all: music, delicious food, art and history. You can even learn to drum Garifuna style if you like.
Tour #7: The dirt bike experience. Pilot a dirt bike through jungles on a southern Belize loop guaranteed to be the ride of your life. This isn’t a tour. It’s an adventure. Dress accordingly.
Tour #8: Monkey River Tour. Belize’s Howler Monkeys call these riverbanks home. You’ll see them, of course, but be on the lookout for their BFFS: crocs, iguanas and perhaps jaguars, all living in harmony.
Tour #9: Horseback/waterfall tour. You’ll be welcomed to a private family farm for horseback riding, no matter your experience. This will be unlike any horseback ride you’ve taken thanks to the lush surroundings and when you’re done, a waterfall swim awaits.
