Experience the jungle of Belize on a thrilling Zip Line adventure.
Begin your Belize excursion with a scenic drive from Belize City towards the Mayan mountains of Belize. During the approximately one-hour drive to the jungle, you'll see the Belize countryside where much of Belize's agriculture is grown. As you get closer to the mountains, pasture turns into lush jungle.
Upon arrival, walk five minutes over a packed dirt and gravel path to the starting point for your zip adventure. After a safety demonstration and strapping up, climb the stairs to your first platform. While you are traversing the lush canopy you'll learn about the ecosystem that surrounds you. There will be staff on each of the nine platforms for maximum safety. The highest platform on this Belize tour is 120 feet and the longest Zip is 600 feet. There are a total of six zip lines. The entire course takes approximately 45-50 minutes.
After completing your zip line adventure, you will have approximately one to two hours of free time for optional activities including swimming in the nearby river or purchasing lunch. With the jungle's beautiful natural setting, it is very likely you will forget all your problems from back home.
At the end of your free time, you will board your transportation for the one-hour drive back to the pier in Belize City.
Please Note: Belize tour times listed are in local time. Due to the difference between local and ship time, Carnival guests must book the earliest local time departure. The river bottom is rocky; tennis shoes (which will get wet) or water shoes are required. Swimming may sometimes be restricted depending on the river current or time restraints. The drive from the main highway to the tour location goes over some unpaved road that is uneven and bumpy.
My family thought the guide was very informative about Belize. Although, it took about an hour on the bus to get to the place..the Zip Line was a blast. Five lines in all. The facilities was nice and the food offered was good. I would recommend this tour!
The excursion was enjoyable overall. My 6 year old son resisted but ended up loving it. I wasn't overwhelmed by the beauty of Belize like everyone said I would be and the bus ride was tedious. So a little disappointed but I would still recommend to others.
This was a great adventure. My husband has ziplined quite a few times over the last few years, but this was my first. I was petrified :) I have a healthy fear of heights but I really wanted to do this with my husband. But the crew was great, they assured me and helped me with additional safety measures to put my fears at ease. It was scary in a good way. Not sure I'll zipline again, but it was a fantastic first experience and I would highly recommend it.
For an even more exciting trip, add the Cave Tubing to your Zip Lining experience.
The zipline adventure was great. The guides were reassuring and helpful, polite and well-versed about the event. I would recommend it highly. I'd never ziplined before, but would definitely do it again.
