Morning typical breakfast and your transport to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a nature reserve in the Stann Creek District of south-central Belize, as established to protect the forests, fauna, and watersheds eastern slopes of the Maya Mountains. Actually, this is the first protected area for the protection of the jaguar (Panthera onca), and it is regarded as a premier site for jaguar preservation.

Its name ‘Cockscomb’ derives from the appearance of the Cockscomb Mountain ridge, which resembles a rooster’s comb, situated at the northern fringe of the reserve and easily visible from the coastal plain of the Caribbean Sea. 

So get ready for an adventurous hike on several trails, each with its unique characteristics having a spectacularly breathtaking view of the entire basin, followed by tube-float down the South Stann Creek River for a uniquely close-up look at the jungle, and then take a short hike to an exceptional natural setting of a waterfall for a cool dip.

Lunch and the continuation of your trip to learn everything about the ancient Mayan currency, the cocoa (or kakaw), by learning everything related to this superfood from its cultivation, care, different processes, fermentation, roasting, etc., and finishing up with a mouthwatering chocolate treat.

DAY 05Xunantunich Mayan sacred site.

Morning breakfast and your drive to one of Belize’s most important Mayan sacred sites, Xunantunich (located in the Cayo District, above the Mopan River).

Xunantunich, which translates to “maiden of the rock” (alluding to a woman who appears on the site), is a Classic Period ceremonial center of the ancient Maya. The picturesque site has numerous stone structures, with its main building “El Castillo” or “The Castle,” looming at an impressive 130 feet in height.

This makes it one of the tallest manufactured buildings in Belize. It is also referred to as the place where the stone woman appears and then ascends and disappears on top.

From the top of the “castle,” those who braved the climbing and altitude can spot a great bird’s eye view of the great foliage around them. Below, one of the lower temples is known for its large stucco frieze. 

So get ready to explore this place and learn about its stories and living legends that date back to the Classic Mayan Period. The whole site has six squares with around twenty-five palaces and surrounding buildings.

Meals: Breakfast. 

Lodging: Boutique Hotel in Placencia.

Activities: Xunantunich expedition and free & easy time at Placencia.

DAY 06Garifuna ethnic Cultural Immersion Tour

Morning breakfast and your drive to the village of Hopkins situated on the beautiful Caribbean coast of the southern parts of the county, for you to learn about this interesting ethnic group and share with them about its culture on a cultural immersion day.

And to make a long story short, the Garifuna people trace their ancestry to West African and indigenous Arawak people, who around 1600 came to America with two Spanish ships carrying West Africans destined for North America. Still, the ships were wrecked near St. Vincent (in the West Indies), and over the next 150 years, the settlers began intermarrying, and the Garifuna ethnic group was formed.

Nowadays, its population is located in the Caribbean islands off Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.

So prepare yourself to dance under the rhythm of the African drums and more instruments and eat like you most likely have never tried before.

Lodging: Boutique Hotel in Placencia.
