Your kids called... they want to go to Belize for the Holidays!

Your kids called... they want to go to Belize for the Holidays!
As the sunny days linger it’s hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close, but the shrinking daylight tells us that a new season is upon us. Back to school means the holidays are just barely over three months away. Lucky for you, we have space reserved for your family trip to Belize . The sun is ready to warm you up, and the accommodations will be more comfortable than home. Best of all, rather than take in all those extra holiday calories at home, work them off on your active Belizean holiday!  You don’t get any closer to the Belizean rainforest than you do while staying in your private treehouse on our Jungle Tree House and Reef Adventure ! From your personal treetop perch at the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge you can experience the tropics like Indiana Jones - caving, rappelling, ziplining, inner tubing, exploring ancient Mayan ruins...

Facts about Zika virus in Central America

Facts about Zika virus in Central America
I’m Costa Rican, and have been living in Costa Rica for 44 years. I travel to Central America and within Costa Rica multiple times each year to visit new hotels, lodges, activities being offered, etc.  I am concerned about health issues as much as any other person. None of my friends or colleagues have had Zika virus. In over 22 years working in the tourism industry and over 10 years working for Wildland Adventures I’ve never met a client with a case of mosquito-borne disease. According to the data currently available, Zika is no worse than the flu and is a potential threat only to pregnant women. Only 1 in 5 people who contract Zika show symptoms, and if they do have symptoms it is usually only a slight fever, rash, joint pain or conjunctivitis and goes away after a week. Unless I or one of my traveling companions was pregnant...

The essence of the countries is in its people

The essence of the countries is in its people
This year I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala for a week and on a comprehensive 16 day trip to Belize , what a treat! Every time I visit Guatemala I’m amazed by the richness of its culture. Just imagine over 21 different indigenous Mayan populations fused with Spanish and European populations. One of my favorite things is to stroll around all the different villages near the Atitlan Lake where ancient Mayan dialect is still the primary language, which is uncommon to see in larger cities throughout Central American these days. It's a chance to really learn about their way of life: weaving the most intricate huipiles, teaching their natural dyeing techniques, etc. The Mayan influence is very strong everywhere you look, I think no other country has more international identity than Guatemala. To top it all our guide was able to spot a jaguar in the jungles of Tikal...
