Board an air-conditioned coach for a guided tour of Belize's rich history, from its establishment by shipwrecked British sailors in 1683 to the modern day. Pass Saint John's Cathedral (the oldest in Central America) and many more interesting sights.

Outside the city, under a thatched Mayan palapa longhouse, listen to a short orientation and safety briefing before boarding a 450hp airboat for the ride your life. Travel one hour via a waterway to the beautiful Almond Hill Lagoon and the manatee feeding grounds. Upon reaching your destination, you will quietly drift so that you can catch a glimpse of the docile manatees feeding.

With a loud call of 'clear' from your captain, you are once again speeding across the lagoon to Indian Creek. Prepare for an eye-opening ride on the pristine marsh -- an entirely different world of unspoiled beauty. Zip along in water only inches deep to see beautiful water lilies, many colors and varieties of wading birds, turtles and maybe even a wily old croc trying to catch dinner as you glide over hundreds of acres of open marshland.

All too soon you are speeding back across the Almond Hill Lagoon heading back to the outpost, where a cool beverage awaits you.
