Belizean Adventures Await!

by Colleen Morrow in


We've got another trip on the books - Belize.

It's a bit different for us, we've never done the resort thing before.  But in December, we're heading off to Hamanasi Adventure & Dive Resort in Hopkins, Belize for a week.  Our package includes a bunch of adventures and we're looking forward to kayaking on the Sittee River, cave tubing, ziplining through the jungle canopy, hiking to Antelope Falls and the ancient Mayan city of Mayflower, and snorkelling.  We'll have something planned for every day except one.  

I'm looking forward to the adventures but probably the most exciting part of the trip for me is that we're going to be staying in a treehouse.  Hamanasi is known for its treehouses.  They are freestanding cabanas, perched 12 feet above the ground, each with its own porch, including hammock, nestled in the trees.  The resort prides itself on having no TVs or phones in any of the guest rooms and a human actually knocks on your door when it's time for a wake up call.  The resort gets amazing reviews - people say the staff is fantastic, the guides are awesome, the food is delicious.  If the pictures are any indication, it should be a great week (pics are from Hamanasi's website.)
