Belize is a land of wild, untrammeled beauty, its jungles and rainforests teeming with a cornucopia of exotic wildlife. And one of the best ways to explore these lush natural environments is with an ATV tour.
ATVs or All-Terrain Vehicles are tough, four-wheel vehicles that can easily navigate the rugged terrain of Belize. Far from the smoothly paved surfaces of Belize’s towns and cities, ATVs can easily traverse steep inclines, ford jungle rivers, and navigate the thick foliage of the Belizean jungle.
Even if you’ve never driven an ATV before, operating one is quite simple. ATVS have an automatic transmission with and are easily steered using the handlebars. All ATV tours start with a brief overview of how to operate the vehicle as well as a safety course. All necessary equipment, including helmets, will be provided to participants. In Belize, a driver’s license is not required in order to operate an ATV as long as it is done on a privately-owned property.
Although ATV tours head through some of the most ruggedly beautiful areas of Belize, participants will be following well-marked paths in order to sustain the integrity of the surrounding jungle. Many ATV tours are held on vast, privately-owned property and can be combined with other exciting adventures, including jungle hikes, swimming and resting at the foot of a jungle waterfall, visiting an abandoned prison, exploring ancient caves, and zip lining through the jungle canopy.
ATVs allow visitors to enter deep into the heart of the Belizean jungle, a natural wonderland where the perfumes of thousands of tropical flowers fill the air. In addition, ATV tours allow visitors to see some of the exotic wildlife that call Belize home, including black howler monkeys (whose cries can be heard for miles around), giant iguanas, flocks of scarlet macaws, parrots, and toucans, tarantulas, tapirs (Belize’s national animal), and even the occasional ocelot, jaguarundi, and other indigenous big cat species.
