Escape to Belize on an adventure from San Ignacio to Tikal. Visit breathtaking Mayan sites in Belize before reaching the Caribbean paradise of Caye Caulker.
Day 1 Belize City
Get to know Belize's former capital on a guided walking tour of Belize City, where remnants of British colonial rule have fused with the tropical climate to form an intriguing and colourful creole culture. Head for one of the museums or art galleries for a versing in Belizean history, or pop down to the Newtown Barracks district, where a cluster of restaurants and bars cater to a lively all-local crowd.

Days 2-3 San Ignacio
Travel to San Ignacio, a lush jungle region brimming with waterfalls, warm swimming holes and intricate cave systems of the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve. Gain insight into ancient civilisations on a trip to the impressive ruins of Cahal Pech, the oldest known Mayan site in Belize, or to the Mayan ceremonial centre of Xunantunich. Back in town, chow down on the range of barbecued delights sizzling away at the street stalls.

Day 4 Tikal
Wake early for the chance to catch a golden sunrise from the top of the majestic Tikal ruins. Spend the day exploring the towering Mayan temples, keeping an eye out for howler monkeys, brightly coloured toucans and macaws sweeping through the jungle canopy.

I had a fantastic time on the tour, the group leader was excellent and all the activities involved were brilliant. We managed to pack so much into each day and it was balanced well between relaxation and activities.

Using Intrepid made the whole experience a lot easier then doing it alone. The group was within my age range with similar travelling styles which made it easy as well.
