Xunantunich & Inland Blue Hole
Take a scenic drive along the Hummingbird and Western Highways, before exploring the Mayan ruin of Xunantunich (pronounced Shu-nan-tu-nitch), or Stone Maiden.

Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve and River Tubing
Located in Southern Belize is the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world's only jaguar preserve. Surrounded by the Maya Mountains and the towering Victoria's Peak, the Basin's 120,000 acres are also home to jaguarundi, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys and tapirs. The park offers a wide variety of hikes, including a waterfall hike where you can dip in the refreshing waters. Our knowledgeable guides identify the numerous birds as well as the flora and fauna of the pristine rainforest along the way. With over 290 recorded species of birds, this park is ideal for birders as well. As jaguars and other cats are nocturnal, it is not very likely that you will see them, but you will be able to spot fresh tracks. Bring your binoculars and trek through this rainforest of abundant beauty!

Actun Tunichil Muknal "ATM Cave"
The adventure begins with an hour-long hike through the 6,700-acre Tapir Mountain Nature Preserve. Crossing three shallow rivers to the cave’s entrance, you get the chance to take a dip in the spring-fed pool before wading up the subterranean river. You will encounter several large caverns, including one known as the “Cathedral”, where a number of undisturbed Maya artifacts are visible—including a soaring altar, carved from the native stone. The cave is known by many names, one of which is “The Cave of the Stone Sepulcher”, due to this magnificent piece of religious artistry. See the intact skeletons of the people whose lives were sacrificed in a desperate effort to appease the gods during one of the most turbulent and difficult times in Mayan history. This adventure requires the visitor to be able to hike, swim, climb through tight spaces, and traverse large stone steps up to the inner sanctum.

Maya Ceremonial Cave
Enjoy a scenic drive through the Maya Mountains, down to the Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant, where you’ll ride through open citrus orchards by horse and buggy. The cave, located behind the Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant, is reserved exclusively for guests of The Belize Collection. Very few people ever enter the cave, making it the ultimate, intimate tour experience.

Left behind as evidence of these mysterious ancient ceremonies are hundreds of artifacts, making Sleeping Giant Cave a natural museum. From Mayan skeletal remains embedded in crystal, to tools, to firepits, to pottery, this is experience is one like nowhere else in the world.
