Itinerary Details

Operated by: Belize Family Adventure

After morning pickup at your San Ignacio hotel, ride to base camp, where you'll be outfitted with a kayak, paddle, and safety equipment including a life vest and helmet.
After a brief overview of safety essentials and paddling techniques, launch onto the currents of the Mopan River. This waterway winds through the lush western interior of Belize and still carries the same name given to it by the ancient Mayan people who once inhabited the area. Float past traditional communities that line the riverbanks and through the unspoiled jungle landscape. During calm patches, soak up the beauty of the surroundings and keep an eye out for native wildlife such as black howler monkeys, exotic birds, and iguanas. Then, get your heart rate up as you tackle the thrill of class I rivers rapids, relatively mild white waters that are suitable for beginning and intermediate kayakers. Well-trained guides are on hand to offer assistance and ensure your safety. If you happen to topple over, not to worry; they will help you get back in your kayak and paddling along smoothly again in no time.
After conquering the river, dry off and relax on the ride back to your San Ignacio hotel in the early afternoon.
