Experience Belize in style on a tour designed for the adventurous traveler interested in luxury comforts. Take in 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. Your jungle home in Lamanai is the world famous Lamanai Outpost Lodge, an isolated wilderness lodge that has been featured on shows such as Discovery, Animal Planet, and National Geographic Explorer where the emphasis is on expert naturalist field guides and attentive staff. In Placencia stay at the beachfront Chabil Mar Villas, a newly built resort with villas that are more akin to finely decorated homes than mere hotel rooms. With modern and luxurious accommodations and intimate excursions into some of the most pristine marine and land ecosystems in Latin America, you're sure to feel refreshed and rejuvenated at trips end. If you seek to explore Belize up close and appreciate luxurious accommodations you will enjoy Belize in Style.

Days 2-3 - Explore Lamanai
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 yours to explore independently or by guided safari into some of the most remote habitats in Belize. Whether it's spotting toucan, manatee, and jaguarondi as you ply the waterways by boat or exploring ancient Mayan temples on foot you will experience a secluded world that few are fortunate enough to see. 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 the Morelet's crocodile, a guided morning trek through the jungle as you follow troops of howler monkeys foraging in the canopies above, or visiting a local family for a traditional home cooked Mayan lunch. Regardless of the activities, your experiences are sure to stay with you for a lifetime.Accommodations: Lamanai Outpost LodgeIncluded Meals:
