Long before the discovery of the Americas by Europeans, the land now known as Belize was home to a thriving and advance culture. The living descendants of this period are a proud part of the mosaic of modern Belize, while the remains of their cities and cultural centers are found all over the land. Many are recognized archeological sites but others remain undiscovered in farmers’ fields, towns and people’s back gardens. We will be happy to assist you in planning a day trip or an overnight excursion to these unique aspects of our Belizean heritage. From the island we recommend two Mayan sites: Altun Ha and Lamanai.
Manatee Watching, Cave Tubing, Belize Zoo, Jungle Canopy Zip Line…all these wonderful and exciting tours leave from the hotel pier. All are full day trips and all begin with a relaxing boat ride to the mainland. Relax and enjoy the adventure!
An amazing variety of birds including the rare and secretive Black Catbird may be observed in the immediate vicinity of Victoria House, and a short forty minute boat ride to the leeward side of Ambergris Caye will introduce you to the many more birds indigenous to this area. Some species you can observe will include Great Blue and Little Blue Herons, Roseate Spoonbills, White Ibis, Brown Pelicans, the Reddish Egret in its rare White Phase and the majestic five foot tall Jabiru Stork. On your way back for lunch at the hotel you may choose to stop for a refreshing snorkel on the reef.
