Day 3

Day at Leisure
Free day in the Mountain Pine forest region.

The Cayo District has a wonderful geography of cave networks, numerous waterfalls and the Macal and Mopan Rivers. It represents a superb natural yet rustic outdoor playground for the adventurous traveller. And for the historian, Cayo's rainforests hide the magnificent Mayan ruins of Xunantunich and Caracol.

Cayo is also home to little known Belmopan, the country's capital, and the bustling town of San Ignacio where people embrace a remarkable cultural diversity.

Day 4

Actun Tunichil Muknal tour
Actun Tunichil Muknal 'Cave of the Stone Sepulchre' is one of the most impressive caves in the Maya Lowland. Located in the heart of the Belizean rainforest, this cave was a sacred place to the prehistoric Maya of Belize, who first began to use the entrance during the early classic period (300 - 600 AD) and consists of a series of chambers, ending in a 300 by 50 metre cathedral where sacrificial ceremonies once took place. Drive to the trail head for a 45 minute trek through Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve, wading across three streams and learning about the plants and animals of the jungle. Spend around three hours in the cave where there will be some swimming and easy climbing in what is a first class caving and archaeological experience. Picnic lunch is included. Please note that the number of official guides permitted to enter the caves is limited so we cannot guarantee that this will be on a private basis.
