Villa-Margarita-Hopkins-Beach-Belize

“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!

Maya Making Tortillas

Maya Ancient & Modern World

It is amazing to get involved in such ancient rich world and to experience and touch the unique pieces from such an antique culture. Belize brings you closer to the daily lives and household of the remaining descendants of the Mayas in a truly authentic Mayan village, to learn directly from them their wisdom and knowledge about the rainforest, nature and traditional way of life.
