Cruise the Belize Barrier Reef and trek into the jungles and towns of this Caribbean paradise.
Belize Barrier Reef
The Belize Barrier Reef is the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere, the second-largest reef system in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This 190-mile section of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is comprised of seven protected areas: Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve, Blue Hole Natural Monument, Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, South Water Caye Marine Reserve, Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve, Laughing Bird Caye National Park, and Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve. The Belize Barrier Reef has over four hundred cayes (islands) including the above and other noteworthy snorkeling and tourist destinations such as Ambergris, Caulker, Carrie Bow, and Ranguana Caye.

Within the cayes, atolls, mangroves, and lagoons of the Belize Barrier Reef are a variety of land and marine species. Conservation efforts work to protect species including the West Indian manatee, green turtle, hawksbill turtle, loggerhead turtle, and the American crocodile. This complex reef system also hosts over 70 hard coral species, 36 soft coral species, 500 species of fish, and hundreds of invertebrate species.

Belize City
Once the nation’s capital, Belize City has a diverse history of settlers and industries. Its first inhabitants were the Mayans—evidenced in the ruins still surrounding the city—followed by British and Scottish pirates. These pirates hid out in the creeks and swamps around the peninsula Belize City is perched upon to raid the passing Spanish ships for treasure. The city was also a mahogany logging camp and export center. Belize City now has a population of over 50,000 people, making it the most populated in the country.

Today Belize City is the industrial and financial center of Belize, with the largest seaport and airport in the country. Because of its history and status as a bustling center of commerce, a variety of cultures are found, from Creole, Garifuna, and Latino to Chinese, Lebanese, Hindu, and Mayan. Several holidays celebrate these cultures including Garifuna Settlement Day on November 19 and Belize City Carnival in September.


Carrie Bow Caye, Belize Barrier Reef
Carrie Bow Caye is more than an idyllic island. The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History has operated a field research station on the island under the Caribbean Coral Reef Ecosystems Program since 1972. Located 15 miles off the coast of Belize on the Mesoamerican Belize Barrier Reef, Carrie Bow Caye is well situation for biology, ecology, and the geology of coral reef ecosystems studies. The one-acre island hosts up to six scientific visitors at a time for one to three weeks throughout the year to research shallow and marine ecosystems. Field research that originated on coral reefs in the 1970s has since expanded to multi-disciplinary research on reefs as well as the surrounding mangroves and seagrass. In addition to the “natural lab,” the research station hosts three onsite labs: a flow-through seawater lab where water is pumped in from a dock, a wet lab where scientists can bring in samples, and a dry lab protected from saltwater, designated for computer, microscope, and camera use. The facilities also have a library, dive locker and scuba equipment, and a tool shop.

For those simply looking for a piece of paradise, Carrie Bow Caye doesn’t disappoint. The water surrounding this outer atoll is bright blue with patches of green. Snorkeling ranges from shallow water around the island to a deep water snorkel farther out where schools of blue and black fish pass with a luminous glow. Angelfish, blue tangs, Stoplight parrotfish, assorted wrasse, porcupinefish, grouper, and even sea turtles are also possibilities. Some say it’s the most “Cousteau-like” snorkel one can experience in southern Belize.

Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Belize
This sprawling 150 square miles of tropical forest of trails is also the first protected area specifically established for jaguar conservation. About 30 jaguars are said to live in the sanctuary. And while spotting the elusive jaguar is highly unlikely, their tracks and scat—along with those of tapir, peccary, and deer—can be seen across the 15 trails throughout the sanctuary. Howler monkeys, gibnut, agouti, snakes, and coatimundi also populate the area. In this jungle of palms and Caribbean pine, red Hot Lips flowers peek from the edges of trails while fungi sprout from logs and leaf cutter ants scurry along the forest floor. Flora and fauna is at every level.

Run by the Belize Audubon Society, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary also boasts a rich bird community of over 300 recorded species. Birding highlights may include the Scarlet Macaw, Great Curassow, Crested Guan, Keel-billed Toucan, Yellow-winged Tanager, Red-capped Manakin, Black-headed Trogon, and the Great Kiskadee. From the treetops to the forest floor, this jungle is rich with waterfalls, mountain views, and biodiversity all around.

Laughing Bird Caye, Belize Barrier Reef
Laughing Bird Caye is the southernmost island in the central lagoon of the Belize Barrier Reef. The island was first declared a protected area in 1981, then a national park in 1991. In 1996, when the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System was inscribed on the World Heritage List, Laughing Bird Caye National Park was identified as one of the top protected areas within the World Heritage Site.

Laughing Bird Caye is a 1.8-acre island of white sand and swaying palms that sits atop a long narrow ridge of reef called a faro—an angular atoll on a continental shelf. Faros are known for having steep drop-offs and a central lagoon within the reef. These deep channels separate Laughing Bird Faro from the mainland, the barrier reef, and other cayes.

The caye is named for the laughing gull that once inhabited the island. Although few gulls inhabit the island now, conservation efforts have resulted in the return of some of the population of laughing gulls. Park rangers also work to protect the island’s sea turtles’ nests. Other birds of the island include the Brown Pelican, Green Heron, and Melodious Blackbird. Snorkelers may share the shallow, blue water with damselfish, parrotfish, Houndfish, bonefish, angelfish, tangs, sergeant majors, rays, black groupers, and a variety of coral such as fan, candelabra, and sea sponges.

Livingston, Guatemala
Surrounded by dense jungle, Livingston sits at the mouth of the Rio Dulce and the Gulf of Honduras. Thus, this charming town is only accessible by boat from the Rio Dulce or nearby Puerto Barrios. Livingston is named after the American jurist and politician Edward Livingston who wrote the Livingston Code, a document of criminal law and procedures which originated in Louisiana and was reprinted in England, France, and Germany. These codes served as the basis of the government in the United Provinces of Central America in the 1800s. Livingston is now known as a small but vibrant town where you can experience a community unlike any other in Guatemala.

After docking in Livingston, stroll a park where residents play, lounge, and visit, adapting to the local pace and flavor. Climb a short, steep hill to shop and restaurant-lined streets. Dubbed “a coconut infused wonderland” with a cuisine different from the rest of the country, Livingston is famous for its coco loco drink: fresh coconut water topped off with rum. The town is also known for tapado, a seafood stew in a coconut broth. The local cuisine comes from a true blend of cultures: Maya, Latinos, and Garífuna. The Garifuna people are descendants of Africans mixed with the local Caribs. And while visitors to Belize and Guatemala have many opportunities to engage with Garifuna, Livingston is a great place to experience Garifuna culture. Step in time with musicians playing bongo drums, conch shell horns, turtle shell drums, and maracas.

Payne’s Creek National Park, Belize
Covering 37,680 acres in Belize's Toledo District, Payne’s Creek National Park (PNCP) is co-managed by the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) and the Belize Forest Department. PNCP’s mission is to preserve the biodiversity of the area and sustainably use resources through non-reactive activity. Some of the protected park species include the West Indian manatee, goliath grouper, black howler monkey, Belize’s five species of cat, and the yellow-headed parrot. Since 2012, park rangers have installed artificial nest boxes to advance the parrot’s population growth. Guests may also see white tail deer, crocodiles, and over 300 species of birds within the park.

PCNP protects its natural resources including freshwater, mangroves, broadleaf forest, and savannah through a set of programs and activities from regular patrol to tourism, like the use of Punta Y’cacos Lagoon for catch and release fly-fishing. PNCP also controls wildfires through prescribed burns in strategic places, allowing the pine savannah to regenerate. PNCP is on target to restore natural uneven-aged Caribbean pine within the year.

Punta Gorda, Belize
Although Punta Gorda (or “PG” as it’s locally known) is the largest town in southern Belize’s Toldeo District, it is a small, walkable community with just five main streets. Stroll into town past the vibrant blue-and-white building and clock in the town center. Then wander down the streets lined with colorful buildings. This fishing town on the Caribbean serves as a hub for locals and vendors from nearby villages selling fish, meats, fruits, vegetables, and crafts. Every day there’s a buzz of local commerce, with even more activity on Wednesday and Saturday market days. Sample the local cassava or pick up a wood or stone carving. PG’s population of Garifuna, Maya, Creole, and East Indian Belize make it the perfect place to chat up the local people and sample local flavor.

Farther afield, some travelers use Punta Gorda as their base to explore nearby Mayan ruins, including Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit. As a gateway to adventure or a respite in a sleepy town, PG offers something for everybody.

Ranguana Caye, Belize Barrier Reef
Located 20 miles west of Placencia and just off the Belize Barrier Reef, Ranguana Caye is the definition of paradise. This two-acre private island is a haven of white sands and shady palms. It’s easy to settle in and sway in a hammock, but there are plenty of ways to stay active. Paddle board, kayak, swim, or play games on the beach. Fishermen catch bonefish while Brown-footed boobies, gulls, royal terns, Magnificent Frigatebirds, and pelicans cruise overhead. Sea turtles’ nests are even protected with wooden boxes scattered across the island. What would paradise be without a tropical cocktail in hand? Freddy’s Beach Bar serves up colorful fruity concoctions and does a mean beach barbeque.

Rio Dulce, Guatemala
Set adrift on the “sweet river.” Rio Dulce is more than a sleepy river and a thoroughfare—and it is both. Before flowing into the Caribbean Sea, the river cuts through Guatemala, where the North American and Caribbean plates converged and created craggy, 300-feet-high limestone cliffs. Travelers have been fascinated by this spectacular gorge for some time. One section of the walls is even covered in carvings, some from as early as 1914. Atop the steep cliffs sits a lush jungle where howler monkeys call, toucans flash, and waterfalls tumble after heavy rains. Below, kayakers paddle along the banks beneath the vines and fisherman throw their nets into the water, opening into aerial, flower-like bursts.

The Rio Dulce flows from Lake Izabal beneath one of the largest bridges in Central America. This section of the river, in and around the town of Fronteras, is a bustling center of commerce. But those who wind into the narrow bends in the river closer to the gulf will find abandoned ships, thatched roof homes, and mangroves thick with lily pads and pink and white flowers. Montezuma birds and mangrove swallows cruise overhead, reminding visitors of the sweet side of this sweet river.
Welcome to the Caribbean coast! A local representative greets you at the airport for your transfer to our hospitality area. Later, head to the Safari Voyager—sweeping views and a happy-to-see-you crew are the perfect welcome to your time in Belize and Guatemala.
Start your adventure with a day of play at the beach. Explore Ranguana Caye, a private island of two acres prime for snorkeling, swimming, and paddle boarding. Take a spin around with your water toy of choice or kick back in a hammock under swaying palms and watch the fishermen off shore. Cruise to Laughing Bird Caye National Park named after Belize’s laughing gull. Head out in your kayak or go for a guided snorkel where angelfish, parrotfish, tangs, sea sponges, and elkhorn, staghorn, and brain coral flicker beneath the clear waters. As the sun sets, circle back to Ranguana Caye where an under-the-stars beach party celebrates all things Caribbean.
Beat the heat and head for land early. Get acquainted with this lush corner of Belize via a birdwatching skiff tour, hard charging hike through the park’s savannah, or kayak through the mangroves. Black howler monkeys, white tail deer, crocodiles, and over 300 species of birds may join you along your way. And don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the ripples of a manatee. At Punta Negra, a class on coconut or baked goods acquaints you with the local culture in the most delicious way. Bellies full from snacks and lunch, spend the afternoon kayaking or snorkeling in Frenchman's or West Snake Caye.
Explore Guatemala by its “sweet river,” the Rio Dulce. Glide past limestone cliffs where North American and Caribbean plates meet and jungles of howler monkeys and toucans tower above. Take it all in or grab a kayak and cruise the mangroves of lily pads past thatch-roofed homes. Stretch your legs in charming Livingston, a town perched on a hill lined with palms and packed with bustling shops and Caribbean flair. Go for an amble or take it up a notch with an optional hike from town to The Seven Altars waterfalls. The cooling waters ripple and cascade, never letting you forget that you’re in paradise.
Good morning, Punta Gorda! It’s market day and there’s something for everybody—wooden and woven crafts, produce, chilies, and tamales. Try a ripe mango or taste the local cassava as you stroll past primary colored buildings and hear a jumble of languages and dialects from the locals. For lunch, sample Mayan flavors paired with a cacao or coconut demonstration. Delve deeper into history with a trip to Mayan ruins. When it’s time to cool off, the cayes call with white sands and from-the-beach or hop-off-a skiff snorkeling. Sergeant major, purple reef fish, and damselfish zip below as pelicans sweep by overhead.
A jungle like no other. This protected area offers a range of hikes from easy ambles to thigh burners—all boasting incredible wildlife. Hear the call of a Crested Guan, Red-capped Manakin, Black-headed Trogon, or Amazon kingfisher. Keep your eyes up to arching palms and heart-shaped leaves tumbling from the trees or to the forest floor where leafcutter ants are on the move. A smooshed patch of grass and paw print mean the elusive jaguar may have shared your path—rest assured he’s the hardest charger of them all and is far along his journey. After your trek, soak in a lazy river in an inner tube or further your studies at the park’s museum. Top off the day with a visit and cultural demonstration from the local Garifuna people.
Ring in your last full day in style. Sail through the outer reef with a brunch cocktail in hand on deck—this water is something to see. A blanket of turquoise is covered in giant, bright green polka dots, different in color because of the sand and seagrass beneath. Cheers to adventure and your final stop in the Belize Barrier Reef at Carrie Bow Caye. Observe scientists at work in this Smithsonian Marine Field Station, where coral, seagrass, snails, and sea turtles are up for study. But don’t forget to play. Paddle boards, kayaks, and a stellar deep water snorkel with schools of blue and black fish call. Back on the Safari Voyager relive your week with the Captain’s Dinner and slideshow treat.
Linger over one last fresh baked pastry as you bid farewell to the Caribbean. Hugs all around to your crew and fellow travelers before your transfer to the Belize City Airport.
