Day Two: Wednesday, October 08 - Scenic Boat Ride on the New River / Exploring the...
Breakfast: At the hotel restaurant.

Morning: Transfer to the New River dock and embark on a scenic boat ride of about 31 miles upstream to the Mayan ruins at Lamanai. While navigating the calm waters of the New River, try to find and identify some of the many bird species found in the area, including: Black-collared Hawks, Northern Jacanas, Mangrove Swallows, Olive-throated Parakeets, American Pygmy Kingfishers, and Purple Gallinules, to name just a few. If lucky, we may even catch a glimpse of the rarely seen Jabiru Stork! Get close-up views of mangroves and virgin forests flanking the narrow waterway and try to spot the colorful orchids that grow along the river banks.

Disembark at Lamanai for a walking exploration of the more than 50 impressive structures found at the archaeological reserve.

This large Mayan ceremonial center is set in a tropical forest on the banks of the New River Lagoon in the north central region of Belize. Unlike most Mayan sites, the ruins found at Lamanai were built in layers; each generation adding on to the existing structures. Some of the site's highlights include the Jaguar Temple, the High Temple, and the Mask Temple. A beautiful panoramic view of the lagoon and surrounding jungle can be seen from the top of the High Temple. It is believed that the ancient center was occupied during more than 3,200 years, and as recently as in the 18th century.

Lunch: At the ruins.

Afternoon: Continue exploring the archaeological complex.

In addition to protecting many fascinating Maya buildings, the reserve at Lamanai provides shelter to a large number of animals. Visitors are sometimes caught off-guard as the rainforest comes alive with the loud, guttural calls of howler monkeys perched high in the forest. Other animals occasionally spotted at the site include agoutis, jaguarundis, woodpeckers, toucans, aracari, trogons, and armadillos.

Boat ride and bus transfer back to Belize City. Return to the hotel.

Dinner: At the hotel restaurant.

Day Three: Thursday, October 09 - Belize Zoo / Border Crossing into Guatemala/Ixpan...
Breakfast: At the hotel restaurant.

Morning: Experience the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center, which was founded in 1983. The organization was born from an effort to provide a safe haven for a number of wild animals that, ironically, had been used in the making of documentaries about tropical forests. The zoo and its education center encompass 29 acres of tropical savanna and house more than 125 animals native to Belize.

Begin transfer to the Peten region in Guatemala. Brief stop at the Belize/Guatemala border for an examination of group documentation.

Lunch: En route at a local restaurant.

Afternoon: Continue transfer to Flores, in the Peten region of Guatemala.

En route stop at Ixpanpajul Nature Park for an expert-led forest walk on trails and hanging bridges.

The Ixpanpajul Natural Park covers an area of nine square kilometers/450 hectares and has more than 200 species of trees, 150 plus species of birds and about 40 species of mammals. A walking trail with six hanging bridges provides multiple angles from which to observe and admire the park's abundant flora and fauna. Learn about the layers of a tropical forest while walking on trails and hanging bridges that eventually lead to the summit of Miramás Hill and its rewarding views of Lake Peten Itza.

Transfer to the hotel.

Dinner: At the hotel restaurant.

This site, with its massive temples rising above the rainforest canopy, conjures images of an Indiana Jones adventure. Once swallowed by the rainforest, Tikal is one of the largest excavated Mayan sites, with more than 4,000 structures. It also features some of the tallest temples in the Mayan world. An impressive network of causeways, aqueducts and canals, which not only served as an irrigation system but also provided drinking water for the city, are displays of some masterful engineering.

Day Seven: Monday, October 13 - Black Hole Hiking & Rappelling Adventure
Note: Black Hole activities require a high level of physical fitness. This adventure includes uphill hikes on dirt trails (about two hours), repelling 300 feet into a sink hole, rock climbing and ladder climbing. Weather is usually hot, sunny and humid and trails can become muddy when there is rain. Participants should wear sturdy walking shoes with good rubber tread, lightweight pants and t-shirt that are comfortable and allow freedom of movement. Also bring insect repellent and sunscreen.

Breakfast: At the lodge restaurant.

Morning: Transfer to Cave Branch (one-hour drive) for a full day of hiking and rappelling activities at Black Hole. Upon arrival at Cave Branch, take part in an instructional session before driving 15 minutes to the base camp and starting our 1 1/2-hour uphill hike. The hike comes to an end at the hilltop at the edge of an enormous sink hole. After donning harnesses and receiving the necessary instructions, begin rappelling into the 300-foot sink hole. Once at the forested bottom, reward your efforts with a well-deserved break for lunch.

NOTE: Participants who do not wish to take part in the Black Hole hike/rappelling will have the option to participate in a moderately strenuous river cave expedition.

The cave activity begins with a 15 minute drive to a drop off point at the river's edge. Sit in a rubber inner tube and float through the entrance to the cave. Continue floating through the dark chambers, enjoying views of the sparkling mineral formations overhead with the aid of headlamps. Once the water becomes too shallow, put aside the inner tubes and set off on foot. The cave floor is rocky and wet and at times it will be necessary to climb over rocky formations.

Lunch: Boxed lunch in the sink hole or inside the cave system (lunch site dependent on the choice of activity).

Afternoon: Explore the sink-hole floor as you make your way back to the camp site. The hike takes approximately 45 minutes. Once at the camp site, you will have the opportunity to clean up before we begin our transfer (approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes) drive to the Caribbean coast.
