Tahoe City, CA > Eco-tourism specialist AdventureSmith Explorations is offering a new 8-day tour designed for the adventurous traveler interested in luxury comforts.
Guests will experience two vastly different destinations within Belize, visiting Lamanai, a tropical low land waterway system in northern Belize with some of the richest biodiversity in the country, and Placencia, a charming Caribbean gateway to the largest reef system in the northern hemisphere.
In Lamanai, guests stay three nights at the world famous Lamanai Outpost Lodge, an isolated wilderness lodge specializing in expert naturalist field guides and attentive staff. Situated on the banks of a 28 mile long spring-fed lagoon amid the remnants of a major Maya city, the Lamanai Outpost Lodge is ideally positioned for explorations into the field. The area is open for guests to explore independently or by guided safari into some of the most remote habitats in Belize. Each day travelers may choose two guided excursions into the surrounding wilderness. Just a few of the possible adventures include: exploring the near by savannah wetlands and tributaries in search of the nesting sites of Morelet's crocodile, a guided morning trek through the jungle to follow troops of howler monkeys foraging in the canopies above, or visiting a local family for a traditional home cooked Mayan lunch.
In Placencia, guests stay at the beachfront Chabil Mar Villas for the remainder of the tour. Chabil Mar Villas is a newly built resort that is more akin to finely decorated homes than mere hotel rooms. Here, guests will enjoy the reefs and islands off the Placencia Peninsula for a day of snorkeling and beach combing on deserted cayes in the world famous Belize Barrier Reef, where they will see a multitude of coral formations and swim amongst a wide variety of brilliantly colored tropical fish on this full day snorkeling and swimming adventure. Additional activity options (not included) in Placencia include more snorkeling, SCUBA diving, spin and fly fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, bicycling, a day trip to the Monkey River, the Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary, or a visit to the village of Placencia.
Travel by December 15, 2005 and save $2,000 per couple (rate is $1,795 per person). After December 15, 2005, rate is $2,795 per person.
