This is truly a reef and rainforest family tour par excellence. Educate your children and yourselves by direct immersion in the lowland jungles and warm Caribbean waters of the small Central American nation of Belize, the only former British colony in Central America. Stay in a charming, small and friendly British-run jungle lodge for four nights, then take a speedboat out to a coconut-palm fringed coral island for five nights on the edge of the second longest barrier reef in the world. Hike rainforest trails in search of monkeys, birds and other fascinating wildlife; marvel at ancient Maya ruins; learn about butterfly natural history; explore limestone caves by canoe; glide thrillingly down canopy zip-lines; snorkel on colourful coral reefs; go boating. All these experiences and more await adventurous parents and offspring who want to bond and commune with nature in the warm New World tropics at eminently affordable prices.
