Jaguar Preserve River Tubing: A perfect day in the jungle floating in the River!

If you are staying in Hopkins and you love nature, then you can’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a day at the super famous Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve. It is located only 30 minutes by car from the Viva Belize Hotels in Hopkins Village and organized weekly by their adventure desk.

Tikal, travelling into the past to an ancient Maya City

Having explored some of the most beautiful and amazing Maya ruins in Belize, we decided to explore one more site. Now that we were staying at Sleeping Giant, we didn’t wanted to miss the opportunity to discover one of the largest and most well-preserved Mayan City in the World – TIKAL. This ancient site is situated in Guatemala within 2.5 hours drive from the Belize border and about 3.5 hours from Sleeping Giant Lodge.

“Paradise found and it is run by angels!”

We stayed at Villa Margarita and some of our family at Jaguar Reef. It was my first trip to a tropical location and my expectations were exceeded. From the moment you arrive and are seated in their grand lobby and handed a warm towel and beautifully crafted drink, you know you are in paradise.

Zip Line

Flying over the Rainforest on the Longest Zip Line in Belize!

You might have heard about it: Bocawina Zip Line – The longest Zipline in Belize! I read about this trip and decided that I needed to venture into the Mayflower Bocawina National Park. If you like the rainforest from the ground you will love it from the heights. This tour is by far one of the best ways to view it all at a canopy level while you are crossing the jungle and feeling the vertigo and speed!
