Day 2 | Full Day Excursion to either Caracol Mayan Ruins or to Blancaneaux Cave and Sapodilla Waterfalls | B.L.D.
Caracol: Situated high on the Vaca Plateau deep in the Chiquibul Forest Reserve, Caracol is the most extensive Mayan site in Belize and was only rediscovered as recently as 1936. The site of Caracol covers over 80 square miles with 30,000 structures and at its peak supported a population in excess of 150,000. Situated at 1600 feet above sea level (one of the highest located sites of the southern uplands region) with no natural water body close by, it remains a mystery why such a huge population center like Caracol evolved where it is. However, the close proximity to both extremely hard stone and copal, two commodities highly prized by the Mayas may help ex-plain this enigma. At the heart of the site lies the massive pyramid of Caana (Sky Palace) which is now almost fully restored and reaches a height of over 135 feet. From the top you can enjoy breath taking panoramic views over the forest clad mountains.
Blancaneaux Cave and Sapodilla Falls: Start your day with a fabulous and fun ride in our Crew Cab 6 Passengers Polaris vehicle to the Elijio Panti National Park. Explore the beautiful Blancaneaux Cave where ancient Mayas held their sacred rituals and learn their mysteries. There, you will find pottery shards and remnants of an ancient life along with some fabulous crystal rock formations. Get back on board the Polaris and take a short ride to the top of Sapodilla Waterfalls. After a 10 to 15 minute hike through fabulous lush tropical rain forest, you will reach the top of the waterfall. From there, you can rappel down the side of the falls, or you can walk down to the bottom pools of the falls and climb up the side of the falls! Your adventure, your choice! Whatever you choose, you will have the time of your life! Don’t forget to jump in for a very refreshing dip in these cool clear waters before heading back to Mystic River Resort. A packed lunch will accompany you so you can feast at the top of the waterfall.
Day 3 | Full Day Excursion to either Barton Creek / Butterfly / Zip Lining or ATM (Actun Tunichil Muknal) | B.L.D.
Barton Creek / Butterfly / Zip line: At Barton Creek Cave, you will glide through a remote underground water cave system in canoes and take in large and colorful formations, skeletal remains and other cultural artifacts left behind by the Maya centuries ago….. Zip lining is an exhilarating experience with spectacular views and a perspective you won’t get anywhere else in Belize. Calico Jack’s is acknowledged as a safe zip line, double cabled, and built to exceed conventional standards. You will have fun and excitement with peace of mind for your safety. Over 2,700 feet of zip line comprised of 9 runs and 15 platforms that take you over and through the jungle. At Greenhill’s you will see flocks of butterflies, from brilliant blue to gorgeous orange, dazzling yellow to intriguing gray, fly freely in a 3,300 sq. ft., beautifully landscaped flight area: The largest live butterfly display in Belize.
ATM (Actun Tunichil Muknal): Explore the buried secrets of Belize’s caves. In the mood for a bit of spelunking? Belize’s caves make for some of the best eco-tourism in Belize. Adventure travel in these parts isn’t complete without a trip to the caves, and Mystic River Resort is within reach of many of them, including the ATM Belize Caves, Cayo District’s newest jungle cave attraction (it was only discovered in 1989) features ceramics, stoneware – and even human skeletons! This Mayan archaeological site is home of “The Crystal Maiden,” the skeleton of a teenage girl, probably a sacrifice victim, whose bones have been given a sparkling appearance by centuries of erosion inside the cave. Actun Tunichil Muknal is a must-see of eco-tourism in Central America. To enter the cave, you wade or swim across a large pool before scrambling up and into the cave. The caverns where the relics are found are dry even when the area is hit by a hurricane. The trip ends with an ice cold beer, soda or water to collect your thoughts, relax, and talk about new discoveries before heading back to Mystic River Resort.
*Important note: This tour is a long and challenging adventure – a good level of physical fitness is required and the ability to swim is a plus.
