Adventure travel allows you to spend time in nature - exploring new landscapes, meeting new people, and seeing unique wildlife. With all of this in mind, there is perhaps no better place in the world to visit on an adventure vacation than Belize. This stunning Central American nation is utterly packed with interesting and exciting things to do.
If you like to get out on the water, Belize offers plenty of chances to do just that. For instance, you could take a boat trip down the beautiful Monkey River. Along the way, you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of the local Belizean wildlife such as manatees, scarlet macaws, and howler monkeys.
Of course, Belize is also home to the Belize Barrier Reef - the second longest reef in the world. If you want to take an up-close look at the more than 500 species of fish that live there, you can go scuba diving or snorkeling in the area.
If you can't get enough of the local wildlife, you can always take a tour of the Belize Zoo. Located about 29 miles West of Belize City, this facility is home to jaguars, tapirs, pumas, king vultures, tree frogs, boa constrictors, and a whole lot more.
For a more culturally-enriched adventure vacation, you can take a trip into the heart of Actun Tunichil Muknal cave - a historic Maya archaeological site. There, you will be able to see ancient skeletons, unique stalagmite and stalactite formations, and plenty of Maya artifacts.
To learn even more about how the Maya people lived and worshipped, you can take a trip out to Tikal in Guatemala. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was abandoned more than 1,000 years ago but was once home to more than 90,000 people. During your trip to the site, you can see the plazas, pyramids, and temples that these people built and used.
Of course, no matter where you want to go during your Belizean adventure, you can book it all with Untame Belize. The Untame team arranges tours and excursions to just about every attraction in Belize - making it easy for you to see everything you want to see.
