Travel to where the colorful plumage of tropical birds accentuates the vine encrusted stone edifices of Central America’s Mayan past. Explore the only sanctuary to be dedicated to the solitary and elusive jaguar while your eyes feast on the multitude of exotic tropical birdlife that Belize has to offer. Visit Xunantunich, once a hub of Mayan civilization, now a magnificent ruin, whose central pyramid stands amid the cacophony of the living jungle. Explore the Underworld in the caves of Xibalba in Belize, and Tikal, Guatemala, where the Mayans built a temple believed to be a portal to a spiritual Underworld. At all times you are surrounded by the incessant calls of thriving birdlife accompanied by the ancient voices of the region’s Mayan past.

In the Mountain Pine Ridge area which is higher in elevation, the temperature is cooler and more comfortable. The wet season is from mid-May through October. Transitional period is between November and February, with the driest being March and April.
