Belize

Belize has the ideal mix of eco-tourism and action sports. This trip was “a little bit of rainforest and a little bit of beach,” as my youngest son said. A major highlight here is cave tubing, where you float down rivers in the filtered jungle light past stalactites above and underground waterfalls below. We even got to see a crystal cathedral of the ancient Maya.

The Mayflower Bocawina National Park has the longest zipline in Belize and it offers a great aerial view of the rainforest, plus a rush of adrenaline like few we’ve experienced. We felt like we were flying through the jungle treetops like Tarzan and Jane.

At the beach, we stayed at Matachica Resort & Spa. It's nice to add a bit of relaxation to the trip while still offering plenty of adventure opportunities like swimming and snorkeling to rev up our appetites for the delicious fresh sustainable fish dinners.
