On arrival in Belize before heading out to Glover's Reef, we have an opportunity to experience the diversity of ther rainforest and the rich Mayan culture of the interior.
Working with guides from the Tropical Education Center we have a rare chance to view the nocturnal wildlife of Belize. Then in the jungle, we float down the "River of Caves" which flows underground through a massive cave system
Thirty six miles offshore of the Belize mainland lies a group of tropical islands cradled within a turquoise lagoon and surrounded by a living coral reef. Glover's Reef Atoll is considered to be one of the richest tropical marine environments in the entire Caribbean Sea. Our private island base of over 13 acres is perched on the southern edge of the atoll with a dramatic view facing east over the main reef crest and the open Caribbean. Based from our comfortable Basecamp, we are fully equipped to spend six and a half days sea kayaking and kayak sailing, snorkeling, diving, and fishing. After our adventures each day we like to reward ourselves with a bounty of fresh seafood, island baking, tropical fruits, and yes, even decadent desserts! Glover's is ideal for those who wish to enjoy the comforts of a well-appointed field camp yet want an active and flexible day-to-day schedule.
| A very well organized vacation; great suggestions to use Continental airlines - flights down and back were on time and good connections; guides adapted to weather, provided lots of options for activities each day, allowed us to make decisions about what we wanted to do, and provided alternatives each day; staff throughout the trip were very pleasant, and skilled at their jobs. I really appreciated their understanding of the information they shared with us and their obvious enthusiasm for their job. |
