Romance at Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve

7 couple activities you must do in San Ignacio, Belize:

Horseback Riding to Xunantunich Maya Temple

Go on a horseback riding expedition and explore the beauty of Cayo with a four-legged companion. Ride through jungle trails witnessing the variety of the local flora and fauna on the banks of San Jose Succotz, and cross an ancient hand-cranked ferry to visit the breathtaking Xunantunich Maya temple. This site will put you in touch with the history and culture of a civilization that is centuries old and provides stunning and lush views of the surrounding area atop El Castillo.

Maya Temples

Belize was once the center of the ancient Maya empire. While the empire may have fallen, their great, structural designs have remained. Explore nearby sites like Caracol, Xunantunich, and Cahal Pech and witness the infrastructures that have persisted the test of time. These sites are great options for couples looking for soft adventures (Cahal Pech) or for those seeking to break a little sweat climbing up for better views (Caracol).

Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve

One quick view is all it takes for you to fall in love with this beautiful 300 square mile forest reserve. Yes, Belize is home to a variety of ecosystems; and, this tropical paradise also hosts the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve — a national park established to protect and manage the pine forests found within the Jewel. Snap a couple of photos with your loved one au naturel with lush river valleys, cave formations, and tumbling waterfalls as your backdrop.

Green Iguana Conservation Project

Did you ever want to meet a dragon? Visit the Green Iguana Conservation Project to learn all the efforts the Project does for these amazing reptiles and learn how vital they are to the ecological balance of the river habitat of Belize. You will get to interact with the green iguanas and learn about the incubation, hatching, rearing, and releasing process of the species.

Jaguar Paw Cave Tubing & Zip Lining

Be mesmerized by the natural wonders of the Belize rainforest! Take a hike along a nature trail as you make your way the Underworld, strap on a headlamp, sit on an inner tube, and have a refreshing ride down a beautiful cave system. After a fun, relaxing journey in the waters, take a ride on the wild side and slide across the forest canopy with a ziplining adventure.

Macal River Canoeing

Going with the flow is not always easy; but, it’s great when that flow takes you down the Maya Mountains unto the calm, clean, rainforest waters of the Macal River! Paddle down into a tranquil day and spot exotic birds or prehistoric-looking Iguanas basking for sun along the river banks. This tour offers you the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure, just for two.

Black Hole Drop

Here are the extra butterflies you have been seeking! Take a 2-hour hike up the Maya Mountains to the “Monster of All Caves,” Actun Loch Tunich. Be mesmerized with incredible aerial views of the surrounding rainforest and sink your fears by stepping off the ledge of a 300-feet high cliff as you rappel your way down the Black Hole Drop.
