Spring Activity Ideas

- Whale Shark Watching: From April through June (when the snapper spawn) the massive and docile whale sharks make their way to Gladden Split, near Placencia. Despite their size, whale sharks are remarkably gentle and curious and swimming with them is a ‘bucket list’ item for many divers and snorkelers.

- Visit the Ancient Mayan Ruins of Belize: Some of the best sites to visit include Lamanai, Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, Caracol and Altun Ha.

- Birding: Beautiful Belize boasts some of the best birding in the Americas.

- Zipline: Experience the longest zipline in Belize, located in the  Mayflower Bocawina National Park.

- Waterfall Rappelling: Bocawina Rainforest Resort & Adventures offers two different waterfall rappeling excursions
