Swim with Whale Sharks in Belize!
The whale shark is the largest fish in the world, and one of the largest creature of any kind alive today. They are most often seen in Belize from Placencia or Hopkins. Unfortunately, since whale sharks are night feeders, there really are no guarantees as to when they show up.
3 or 4 days before and after the full and new moons in April and May are the best times to interact with the sharks, they are often sighted through the summer months as well. They roam up and down the coast, the Gladden Spit area about 26 miles off the coast of Placencia is known to host large concentrations of whale sharks during April and May when Mutton and Dog Snappers are spawning (the whales ingest the spawn as food).
Despite their size, whale sharks are a remarkably gentle and curious creature. The whale shark’s gentle natures makes swimming with them a special treat for divers and snorkelers. The whale shark’s curiosity even pulls fishing parties into its thrall. We have sometimes had whale sharks seem to be asking to be petted as they glide alongside our fishing boats.
An opportunity to share the water with a creature larger than a school bus does not come often in life – and is definitely not soon forgotten!

Hiking on Victoria Peak, Belize.
Climbing Victoria Peak is an adventure few Belizeans or visitors get to experience. It’s 3,675 feet high but the going is mostly through tropical rainforest. The entire trip is approximately 40 miles and doing the hike usually takes about 4 nights and 5 days.
Ensure your backpack is fully equipped with all your necessary gear and equipment and your on your way to triumph when you hit the summit! No easy feat – it is said that less than 300 people have actually made it all the way to the top. Will you be one?

Indiana Jones (2008)
1.) One can argue which Jones movie was the best, but he’s hands down the coolest professor/treasure hunter to ever sport a leather jacket.
King Kong (1933)
2.) A unique tale of a ginormous monkey as a transplant New Yorker. This classic never gets old.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
3.) Female version of Indiana Jones – beauty and brains, Angelina Jolie takes us to exotic places and takes down the bad guys all by herself.
Robin Hood: Men In Tights (1993)
4.) A hilarious spoof of the original story of a band of merry men.
The Terminator (1984)
5.) Nuclear holocaust future and a cyborg sent from the future on a deadly mission.
The Lord Of The Rings (2001)
6.) Definitely worth geeking out to the entire trilogy.
The Princess Bride (1987)
7.) This is a perfect Date Night movie; it has something for everyone: romance, sword play, giants (Andre The Giant R.I.P.), Princess named Buttercup and quest for true love.
8.) 78-year-old ties thousands of balloons to his house to visit the beautiful landscapes of South America. Pixar never lets us down.
Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)
9.) Post apocalyptic times with supped up cars, weapons and a serious wardrobe; definitely inspired a Beyonce video.
Star Wars (1977)
10.) A George Lucas classic. We want an ewok!

You like us, you really like us! We topped great places in Costa Rica and Guatemala – even our own Placencia and San Pedro! The farmlands, jungle hikes, nearby rivers and ruins – all contribute to make us the #1 Belize spot on Trip Advisor’s Central America: Top 25 Destinations 2012.

We got to work with some very talented friends who came down from New York to check out Ka’ana’s version of Belize – and capture it on video.
From making clay pots with local Maya women, horseback riding through rivers, hanging out in private pool villas, swimming into – and exploring Maya caves (Including human remains!) to helicoptering over rivers and waterfalls… The list goes on, so let’s leave it to the photos!
