Countdown To The Ultimate Adventure
Witness and experience the ultimate adventure as it evolves before you; step into a time that is seldom mentioned or appreciated. Join biologist and environmentalist Sharon Matola – founding director of the Belize Zoo and tropical education center – for an opportunity to enjoy the raw beauty of the elusive jaguars of Belize. Schedule a private consultation with Rosario Panti, granddaughter of the world renowned healer Don Elijio Panti and now the region’s last Mayan Shaman. Follow this enlightening meeting with a holistic, Mayan healing massage and energy work to relax the mind and ease away the tensions of everyday life. Travel back in time with Rosalio Penados, an 83 year old chilclero as he recounts the joys, as well as the struggles, of harvesting chicle in the heart of the jungle of Old Belize.
Fly over large expanses of jungle and drive into the scenic highlands of the Chiquibul Forest to Caracol (“The Snail”), the center of the ancient Maya empire. With prominent archaeologist Dr. Jaime Awe as your personal guide, climb Caan (“Sky Place”), the tallest structure in Belize – ancient or modern – capped by three temples that rises over 140 feet above the jungle canopy, giving you an uninhibited view of the surrounding mountains. Offering unique memories of a civilization that once was, explore and behold the beauty of the past preserved for us to revere sprinkled with art, culture and a hint of mystery.
