1 Week Belize Soft Outdoor Adventure Tour. Join us in 2018. We’ve worked hard to provide what we think is the perfect combination of active adventure activities while at the same time seeing some of Belize’s best locations. We’ll visit several ancient Maya sites, travel through amazing caves, both on foot and by water, visit inland and beachside towns and spend several nights camping out. Even if you’ve been to Belize before we will guess that you have not visited some of these places.
