Few other zip lines give you the chance to truly appreciate the jungle canopy while respecting the rainforest.
Kids River Fishing
Join “Cpt Jack” as he takes you along the Rio Grande on our pontoon boat, looking for the elusive roll of the Tarpon, hear the call of the Howler Monkeys or the splash of a crocodile. Let your children try their luck trolling for Snook, Snapper or Jack Fish with our spinner rods.

CHILDREN’S TORTILLA MAKING CLASS
Have an aspiring young chef in your family? Children will get a hands-on lesson in flour tortilla making with our pastry chef. In this 90-minute class, children will mix, knead, and roll out their own tortillas and watch as the chef cooks them in the traditional Belizean way, over an open fire comal. Using freshly made tortillas, children will also make cheese quesadillas and signature fry jacks – all from the same dough. Recipes cards are provided to make tortillas at home. Children under 10 need a parent present. This class takes place outdoors. (Please inform us of any food allergies. Not suitable for gluten-free or celiac children.)
