Into the blue of Belize and the mystery of the Maya

The eastern coast of Mesoamerica is little known and rarely visited via the sea. Since the days of the ancient Maya, who flourished along the coast some 1,500 years go, civilization has had little impact. Large swaths of the region remain wild with protected tropical forests, meandering rivers, abundant birdlife—and the largest coral reef system in North America. The Belize Barrier Reef is alive with a galaxy of brilliantly hued fish and corals. The human history is fascinating, and the imprint of the Maya evident. Discover temples nestled in the forest, or set overlooking lakes. And modern life, a melting pot of people, cultures, languages, and music.

Expedition Highlights

Discover temples and forests teeming with life. Remarkable ruins of pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Delve into the mystery and history amid stone temples, palaces, and terraces cut by ancient people. And dive into a wealth of biodiversity in the Northern Hemisphere’s largest reef system at the Belize Barrier Reef. Revel among hundreds of species of fish, marvelous sea turtles, graceful rays, over 90 varieties of coral, and with luck, manatees. As only a small percentage of the reef has been studied, researchers believe hundreds, even thousands more species could be discovered in this protected zone.

I don’t know if it could get any better than having guides who are super knowledgeable about the way of life today and the way of life 2,000 years ago.
