On the Beach, Near the Jungle, Far from the Crowd
Immerse yourself deep in the jungle and explore the secrets of its waterways via a nimble kayak. You and your experienced local guide will put in at the Manatee River Bridge and travel the Manatee River all the way down to the Southern Lagoon. Along the way, you may spot howler monkeys, turtles, tapir and gibnut as you peacefully float through seas of bamboo and water lilies. Enjoy a gourmet lunch on the river. At the Southern Lagoon, you’ll trade your kayak for a ride in our cruise boat. After a stop at Manatee Spring to meet the local manatee celebrities, you’ll head back to Leaning Palm Resort for happy hour.
Our wranglers will give you an interesting, and often entertaining, commentary along the trail, highlighting on Belize's beauty, culture and history. We will transport you into the past to a world that the ancient Maya called home under the dense jungle canopy.
Your adventure begins at our stable after a brief training session. Then its time to hit the trail - passing through a citrus orchid and then wondering into the mysterious greens of the Tropical Rain Forest. Allow yourself to be engulfed by nature! Take a plunge into the clear cool water of the Sittee River!
