Upon arrival to the reserve, you will be briefed and given orientation about the park. You will also view the original cages built by reserve founder, Alan Rabinowitz, which he used to capture and tag wild jaguars. The first hike will be on an established trail, where your guide will explain the flora and fauna that makes the reserve such amazing place. You will also get to see a plethora of wildlife including a variety of exotic birds.

After the first hike on the trail, you will return back for a home cooked lunch. Later, the adventure continues as you hike upstream with inner tubes. It’s now time to relax and enjoy nature as you gently float downstream going with the flow of the South Stann Creek River.

SUGGESTED EXPERIENCES:

Placencia lies at the southern end of Belize and is a thin 16-mile (26-kilometer) long stretch of land with the best beaches in the entire country.

It is the perfect location for divers, snorkelers, and those who wish to explore the Mayan ruins in the south of the country. The town still has a laid back Caribbean attitude, and life here centers around the three-foot-wide main street where you will find most bars and restaurants where you can eat seafood, relax on the beach, and drink beer as the sun sets.

Go Sailing

Go Diving or Scuba DiveThe Belizean Barrier Reef is the world’s second largest barrier reef just 45 minutes from shore. If you’re new to diving, consider a trip to Laughing Bird Caye. For something more adventurous, head to The Elbow at Gladden Spit. For the two weeks following a full moon, whales sharks feed on the small fish that spawn here.

Go Sea Kayaking and Snorkel
 
Explore Placencia Lagoon The is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of manatees, saltwater crocodiles, and numerous species of birds. The mangrove forests are ideal for exploring via canoe or kayak rental.
Meet the whale sharks!
