Trip Description

The Belize Family Adventure includes a children's program filled with active fun and adjusted to match the educational level, physical ability, and curiosity of individual participants between the ages of 6-10 and 11-15. Every family will have their own butterfly hatchery to hatch and release a Blue Morpho butterfly into the jungle. Arts and crafts include weaving palm fans while the children learn about the many uses of the native Cohune Palm. These are only two examples of the many family activities on offer to aspiring young adventurers. Parents appreciate quality time with the kids and time to relax at the spa or choose an active adventure. This family trip to Belize is a culture based environmental program that introduces children and families to the tropical forest in western Belize.
