Here is what our March 2018 looked like:

Spend 7 days in the Central America country of Belize where you will create amazing memories by experiencing the tropical jungles and the warm caribbean ocean all in one trip! We will kick off the trip with an exclusive interactive VIP tour at the Belize Zoo guided by the zoo's founder and owner! Then we will spend a couple days surrounded by lush jungles at the Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (MBWS), which is known for its education and training center as well as reintroducing Howler Monkeys back into the area. While staying at MBWS we will go back in time with a visit to the quaint ancient mayan ruins of Altun Ha where you will see and climb beautiful 2,000 year old mayan architectural temples. The next part of our journey will take us to the infamous Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, also known as the Jaguar Preserve. We will learn about the jungles secrets as we hike through the reserve until we reach a basin, where we will have a refreshing river-tube ride completely engulfed by the lush jungle.  After cooling off in the water we will make our way to the beautiful Caribbean ocean where we will enjoy the sun, sand and ocean for the last part of our trip. During the 3 full days we spend along the shore, the time is yours to decide what to do. You can relax on the beach, swim in the warm ocean and experience the local shops and restaurants of Placencia. An excursion is also included in this part of the trip, you can either snorkel along the second largest barrier reef in the world or go experience fishing on a boat in the warm Caribbean sea.
