The Punta Gorda Waterfront : It’s neither developed nor pristine, but don’t miss a casual walk along the Caribbean — then wander to Central Park for ice cream.
Lubaantun : The ancestors of today’s Maya used this ceremonial center, which — along with nearby Nim Li Punit and Uxbenka — boasts stunning views, thick forests, and several longstanding legends.
Aguacaliente Wildlife Sanctuary : Swing through the relaxing village of Laguna to access the boardwalks of this premier birding destination.
Village Guesthouses and Homestays : Head upcountry to experience a cultural immersion program in one of a dozen simple country villages. In addition to the cultural adventure, expect guided hiking, swimming, caving, and river trips.
Blue Creek Cave : Near the village of Blue Creek, the cave of the same name is the source of the Río Blanco — you can swim 600 yards inside it. Also check out nearby Río Blanco National Park.
