Leaning Palm Resort

Tour the jungle from the water.
Leave behind noisy motorboats and become part of the jungle from the seat of your trusty kayak. You’ll silently slip through the lush landscape, hearing the jungle sing with howler monkeys, toucans, parrots and other exotic birds (almost 600 species call Belize home). You’ll stop to hike along flowing rivers and see turtles, reptiles and mammals undisturbed in their natural environment. An expert in the diverse Belize ecosystem will help you identify sandpaper trees, delicate orchids and perhaps point out a tapir holding its breath as it crosses the river.  
Leaning Palm Resort supplies all the necessities: knowledgeable guide, transportation, kayaks, paddles, safety gear, a gourmet lunch for full-day tours, snacks, drinking water and sodas. Beer and wine are available for purchase.
