Posted by ECBR on Dec 4, 2012 9:30:05 AM

Belize is a serene destination that’s located in one of the world’s last unblemished area. The country is full of everything from lush rain forests and colorful barrier reefs. For travelers from the U.S., it’s nice to know that Belize is an English-speaking country, which makes it easy to find your way around and ask locals for advice. Plus, it’s a short trip from Houston, Dallas and Miami, taking only two hours to get to your destination.

Activities on Ambergris Caye

In order to book one of many adventure tours in Belize, you’ll want to narrow down your options by considering the different activities available. Not sure what you’re interested in experiencing? Visit the different websites for adventure tours and watch videos. Most of these websites have great videos showing people in action surfing, kayaking and windsurfing, among other sports. Belize has tons to offer, including:

• Rainforest tours and hiking
• Diving in the barrier reef
• Exploring Mayan temples
• Climbing Mayan ruins
• Sea kayaking from a private island
• Paddle-boarding
• Exploring an underground river
• Snorkeling
• Surfing
• Fishing
• Windsurfing
• Kitesurfing
• Rafting
• Exploring caves

After an adventure tour, you may just want to spend the rest of your vacation unwinding. Golf tours and packages are available for those who feel like playing multiple rounds of 18 holes is an adventure in itself.

Overnight Tours

Some adventure tours don’t end when the sun goes down. Week-long tours are available as well. In these extended tours, guests can experience tons of sports and activities during their time away. Many week-long or eight-day tours boast as many as 15 or 16 sports during the trip. There are also three day tours available in the jungle and on islands.

Considerations When Booking Tours

Some tours will end with a lovely dinner or drinks on the beach. If you want the tour to last an entire day and come with the option of a meal, make sure to ask ahead of time. Otherwise, you could get stuck at the end of the day, starving and far from your resort. Also, some couples want tours that have both excitement and relaxation. Also, if you’re interested in more than one activity, ask about packages. Even individual activities, like diving, have different options, so make sure to ask about the assortment of packages available. Lastly, look for all-inclusive tours to get the most bang for your buck.

Preparing For the Unexpected

It’s never fun to have something go wrong on vacation. This is why it’s so important to prepare as much as possible ahead of time. When you’re considering an adventure tour, there are even more things to take into consideration. Make sure to read up on certain important recommendations, like which fish to stay away from when snorkeling and how to carry money while you’re participating in water sports all day long.

Couples who want a romantic, exotic vacation often travel to Belize. By booking an adventure tour, you can get out of the resort and create exciting lifetime memories together. Making sure that you’re ready for strenuous activity is key. Luckily, though, you don’t need much experience with the specific activities you’re booking - that’s what the guides are for. Altogether, Belize is one of the best intimate vacations you can plan in the Caribbean or Central America.
