Being observant and learning about life around us is an important part of travel with Island Expeditions. One of the most exciting aspects of adventure travel is learning and we recognize that when we provide in-depth knowledge about the environments and cultures we explore, your experience is greatly enriched. On the sea our guides are far and away the most experienced and knowledgeable in Belize. Belize trip leaders of Maya, Creole, and Garifuna origin bring special skills and knowledge of the areas we are traveling.
When we travel in the rainforest your Mayan guide not only is a veteran bushman but will also contribute a fascinating cultural element to our wilderness experience. On the sea our Garifuna and Creole guides blend their stories and legends with our day by day adventures on the Barrier Reef and at our Basecamps on Glover's Reef and Lighthouse Reef. Our Belizean leaders are paired with North American leaders who have a great deal of experience traveling worldwide, are certified in Wilderness First Aid and are accomplished river runners, sea kayakers, educators, and naturalists. They work together to create an outstanding opportunity for you to learn when you travel to Belize with Island Expeditions!
