7 Wild Things Not to Miss on a Belize Family Adventure

7 Wild Things Not to Miss on a Belize Family Adventure
Belize is one of the most exciting family adventure travel destinations in Central America, especially for teens and young adults. Lately, I've been planning a lot  of adventure trips to Belize for active families. It seems likes the everyone's most cherished experience involves making connections with the local cultures. Dinning on traditional native cuisine, exploring Maya ruins and learning about the history of this beautiful country. Here are my top 7 activities and experiences you don't want to miss during your family vacation in Belize . 1. ATM CAVE: Actun Tunichil Muknal is considered one of the top 10 caves in the world.

Champagne Kisses on Temple Tops

Champagne Kisses on Temple Tops
During a recent call with a Wildland Alumni traveler we got to chatting about their past trip that I helped them plan to Belize and Guatemala . She recalled that “… and you made our 25th anniversary so special. When our guide surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine while watching the sunset from temple top at Yaxha, it was truly incredible.” I replied “Of course, I got you covered.” Maybe that’s a bit braggadocios, but that’s just how we roll at Wildland Adventures. It’s the little things in unexpected places that can turn an already special time together into classic moment that you’ll cherish forever. Planning a romantic vacation takes a finer level of understanding about the destination you are visiting.

Wildland took the stress out of our Belize honeymoon

Belize-adventure-travel
  We aren't the type of people that can sit on the deck of a cruise ship for 10 days, drinking boat drinks (although we have no objection to boat drinks), and call it a honeymoon.  So a trip to Belize was perfect for us!  It gave us the perfect balance of adventure travel and tropical destination.  We spent part of our time exploring underground caves through Mayan sacred spaces and seeing the remains of their great cities. Those days were ideally complimented with time on the coast, as beach bums, snorkelers,  fly fisherman (and woman), and generally getting pampered.  It was just the right balance of culture and comfort.       Wildland took the stress out of adventure travel.  At Black Rock Lodge , we ate dinner with a different couple each night.  Each of them told stories of how difficult it was for them to get to this...
