Trip ITINERARY

Day 1- 3

On day one, you will be met in Dangriga, and transferred to your eco-resort located in the Southern Maya Mountains. After your welcome drink, meet other travelers on your trip, and choose your activities for the next two days!

Your accommodation for the first half of your adventure is the Bocawina Rainforest Resort. Combining modern eco-resort amenities while still providing that off-the-grid vibe, Bocawina is the best of both worlds. Located in the Southern Maya Mountains, Bocawina sits within a 7,000 acre Mayflower Bocawina National Park. And, as an added bonus, the resort is located right next to the world famous, 100,000 acre Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve. Spend your days hiking to un-excavated Mayan ruins, experience the longest zip line in Belize, or enjoy the only waterfall repelling in the country! This is an incredible location to relax, or spend your days exploring your surroundings from sunrise to sunset.
