You mean there’s something to do besides fly fish in Belize?! If you are a died in the wool fly angler, this might sound like a silly concept, but there is an amazing amount of other activities to fill your free days here on Isla Bonita. Here is just a sampling of the many options:
Scuba Diving: For every person that comes to Belize to fish, 100 or so come to dive the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Some favorite destinations include the world famous Blue Hole, the Turneffe Atoll, Mexico Rocks, Hol Chan Reef and Shark Ray Alley. Add a 2 tank dive to the reef for less than $100 per person or book an entire weeks all-inclusive diving package for $1995 per person that includes a trip to the Blue Hole.
Snorkeling: The second largest barrier reef in the world offers an almost endless number of amazing snorkeling sites. This barrier reef does a great job at knocking down the waves, making this a great place for both the inexperienced snorkeler or the seasoned expert. Add a 1/2 day snorkel trip for less than $50 per person or a full day of catamaran sailing, snorkeling, island hopping and rum punch drinking for about $100 pp.
Reef Fishing: We offer full and half day trips to the reef, fishing for delicious fare like grouper, snapper, yellowtail and barracuda. 4 guests can share a half day of reef fishing for less than $90 pp. For a special treat, book a full day of reef fishing with a beach bbq.
Blue Water Fishing: This is a specialized fishing outing, looking for the trophies of the deep, including dolphin, wahoo, tuna, sailfish and even the occasional marlin. There is a variety of options, ranging from $500 per day for 4 guests in a modest size panga to $2000 per day for up to 12 guests to enjoy a day on a 52′ Hatteras with all of the luxuries you would expect to find on a deluxe sportfisher. The average is about $800 for a group of 4 for an all day trip.
Day Tours: These include guided trips to the Mayan Ruins on the mainland. Cave tubing, zip lining, jungle horseback tours, atv trail riding, whale watching, manatee viewing, sailing, jet skiing, kite surfing and even golfing. A day trip to the Mayan ruins at Laminai, including an eco tour/boat ride up the wildlife filled New River and a professional guided tour of the ruins is a must see experience. An all-day trip including lunch, dock to dock, is available for less than $200 pp. Another favorite is a trip that combines cave tubing, zip lining and a tour of the Mayan ruins at Xanantunich for around $260pp.
Stay at the Lodge: We have kayaks, stand up paddleboards, bicycles, masks and snorkels and golf carts that our guests can use to explore the island, both in and out of the water. And did we mention that the pool has a swim up bar area?
