Photo Adventure in Belize
Explore a little of everything Belize has to offer from the Mayan Mountains to the Caribbean Sea
January 30 - February 6, 2011
Belize has just about everything: jungles, beaches, wildlife, mountains, caves, waterfalls, and ancient Maya ruins. This trip has everything too! Over the course of a week, we'll take you on a photographic adventure of a lifetime as you get to see and photograph Belize as few tourists ever could.
In Belize, the main language is English, with a diverse mixture of culture and familiar Caribbean hospitality. On this trip, you can expect some early starts, with photography lessons making the best of the light at dawn and dusk. Normally, two to three hours are available for lunch, giving you time to relax or to choose other activities organized by your guides.
This trip has been designed to give you a taste of everything Belize has to offer. Your Belize Adventure begins in San Ignacio, with panoramic views of the Cayo district and into the wilds of Guatemala. Then we head southward, down the Hummingbird Highway to the Toledo district. Here we'll travel to enchanting remote Maya villages on the border with Guatemala and be guided deep into the jungle with local wildlife experts. Other highlights are Mayan ruins and ancient temples, Mayan mountain landscapes, rainforest scenics, waterfalls, an organic cacao farm (chocolate), a butterfly farm, Placencia (a small, Caribbean calypso coastal town), plus other surprises.
The tuition of $1950 includes airport shuttles (Belize City), all transportation within the country during the workshop, lodging for the entire week (double occupancy), all meals, entrance fees to all sites, professional guides and photography instruction. Additional expenses that you might incur includes a single room supplement ($300), medical insurance, alcohol, and gratuities.
There is some very light hiking required for some locations and the maximum group size for this workshop is 8. The host and sponsor of this trip is the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), a leader in the adventure travel business for over 30 years. They were described as "one of the best outfitters on Earth" by National Geographic Adventure Magazine.
