Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Stay: Bocawina Rainforest Resort
Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Welcome to Bocawina Rainforest Resort!  You're in for a special all inclusive treat over the next 3 days. Our jungle lodge has canopy ziplines, stunning waterfalls, miles of trails through pristine forest and even boasts a small Mayan ruin next door!

Today venture out to explore the tropical wilderness.  Cool off with a swim in a mountain fresh pool or learn about the wildlife and plants with experienced bush guides.

In the evening dinner is served at the award-winning Wild Fig restaurant, Wi-Fi is available in the lodge restaurant so you can share daily experiences with family and friends from this remote rainforest setting.

Day 2
Stay: Bocawina Rainforest Resort
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Rise with the sun and be on the grounds for the first light of day emerging through the jungle mists. Waking up to the sounds of the tropics is a pure delight, with the chatter of parrots and parakeets flying overhead, the fresh morning air scented with tropical blossoms, and the expectation of an exciting adventure-filled day ahead. There is no need to venture far to experience the heart of the jungle. Finding a quiet spot to sip a coffee with binoculars close at hand is a sure way to soak in the essence of the rainforest.

After breakfast, you will go on an exhilarating hiking expedition to Antelope Falls . This is an invigorating hike through the rainforest, learning about the jungle flora and fauna from your guides. After your challenging hike you will enjoy a picnic lunch while you cool off in the refreshing emerald pools at the top of the falls. From the top you can see all the way to the Caribbean Sea. At this point you can relax and swim in this breathtaking setting. After your break, a 250 ft waterfall rappel await, this will be the highlight of your trip! Rappelling is only optional, and is not recommended for the faint of heart. An alternative for families with children, and those looking for a shorter and easy hike, we recommend Bocawina falls for hike and rappelling.

That afternoon you may want to sign up for the eco-lodge’s optional afternoon activities or a nocturnal hike. A walk in the rainforest is magical at night, exploring the moonlit trails and listening to the calls of the crickets, frogs and birds. You are likely to encounter paca, owls and kinkajou ...and maybe even see a wildcat!

Day 3
Stay: Bocawina Rainforest Resort (2 Night Package Depart this Day)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Victoria Peak, the highest peak in Belize, emerges early from the misty morning. It reminds us of the many secret places that lie hidden in the swaths of green jungle. Five species of wildcats pad silent trails and the legendary Harpy Eagle nests in the upper reaches of the canopy.

For those staying an extra day Enjoy the beauty of the jungle by horseback on this half-day tour. Enjoy a leisurely ride while your experienced guide points out the flora and fauna around you. Stop at the river for lunch and a refreshing swim before continuing on to visit the Seaside Garifuna Village of Hopkins. Anyone can enjoy this activity, from the experienced rider to the absolute beginner. The horses are well trained and the guides will be with you throughout the tour.

For those departing on day 3, your day is completely flexible. Your return transportation by van to Dangriga can be arranged for either before or after lunch. (if you arrived after lunch on Day 1 then lunch can be included on this day)

 

Day 4
Stay: N/A
Meals: Breakfast (if you arrived after lunch on Day 1 then lunch can be included on this day)

Day four is completely flexible. You can stay close to the lodge or follow a trail to a favorite pool or waterfall.  We highly recommend morning birdwatching guided tour, with over 290 species identified in the property, this National Park is ideal for birdwatching aficionados. Your return transportation by van to Dangriga can be arranged for either before or after lunch.
