Here at Flash Pack, we’re committed to unique adventures that deliver great value for money. We pack our trips with epic experiences (unlike other companies, all activities are included), hand-pick stylish hotels and match you with like-minded people.
Touch down in Belize
Flashpackers, welcome to Belize! Home to lively green rainforests and idyllic island cayes, you’ve just touched down in a slice of Central American heaven. After landing at Belize City International Airport, catch your short domestic flight to San Ignacio, where a transfer will be waiting to whisk you away to your rainforest retreat. Settle in with a welcome drink, adjust to your new tropical surroundings and get ready to meet your full Flash Pack gang. Come evening, we’ll enjoy a hearty welcome feast at the hotel; get ready to tuck into your first bite of Belizean seafood, before clinking glasses filled with belly-warming local rum, toasting to the epic adventure ahead. Expect idyllic views stretching to the horizon, plus plenty of excellent company.Read more
Waterfall hiking and zipline thrills
Breakfast can be a hearty affair in Belize; think Mayan omelettes stuffed with chaya (tasty jungle greens), and fry jacks topped with scrambled eggs, so take advantage of this morning’s feast , as you’ll need plenty of fuel today. We’ll kick things off with a two-hour waterfall hike that’ll take us into the jungle towards the roaring waters of Antelope Falls. Work up a sweat on the climb to the top, then cool down with a swim in the jungle’s emerald green pools – before feasting on a picnic at the foot of the falls. After lunch it’s time to fly along a truly epic zipline course through the jungle. Speed through miles of canopy-topping cables, taking in expansive rainforest views. Finish the day with a delicious group dinner and toast well-earned sundowners.Read more
Escape to Ambergris Caye
Today we’ll be swapping rainforest tropics for the idyllic golden sands of Belize’s Ambergris Caye. We’ll take a 2-hour drive to Belize City by minibus, before hitching a motorboat across sparkling Caribbean waters to our next destination. Check-in at your island lodge and feast on a delicious lunch, taking in sun-soaked views of verdant mangroves and palm-fringed sapphire waters. Spend the afternoon on the water as we navigate towards Caye Caulker Reef on our boat. Navigate a vibrant world of coral reef beneath the surface – home to tropical fish, sea turtles, manatees and more. Afterwards, dry off and tuck into dinner to replenish after a day of activity, before sipping on rum cocktails under a starry night sky.Read more
Sharks and rays
After enjoying breakfast at the hotel, you will have a morning at leisure in which we highly recommend going for a stroll along to the local town or spending some time relaxing by the pool. After lunch, we’ll head to Shark Ray Alley, where despite ocean depths of a relatively shallow six feet, the area teems with curious nurse sharks (don’t worry, they prefer shrimp and squid) and stingrays spanning up to four feet wide. Snorkel through the crystal clear ocean among the sharks and stingrays; an exhilarating experience you’re unlikely to forget. Hop back onto the boat for our second stop-off at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, where you can enjoy a serene snorkelling session spotting colourful coral reefs, glistening shoals of tropical fish, and if you’re lucky, green sea turtles, too. Back on dry land we’ll tuck into a mouthwatering beach barbecue, crack open the beers, light some candles and keep the rum flowing on our final night of the trip.Read more
Flashpackers, after a whirlwind four-day adventure taking in wild jungle highs and beach life on the Cayes, it’s time to say adiós to Belize. Take a boat ride back to the mainland, then it’s over to you to make your own way to your next destination. It may only have been a long weekend, but what an epic trip. You’ve hiked a waterfall and swum in tropical jungle pools; you’ve flown through the canopy on the longest zipline in the land; you’ve snorkelled the Belize Barrier Reef; cruised the blue waters of the Caribbean ocean by catamaran, and sipped rum under the stars with the sand between your toes. Feel like extending your Central American adventure? Join us on our journey to Costa Rica. Wherever you’re headed next, you’ve enjoyed a true Belizean experience and made Flashpacker friends for life. Not bad for a mini-escape.Read more
- Fly into and out of Belize International Airport.
- Our adventure in Belize starts with a small local flight (included in the price of the trip) between Belize City International Airport and San Ignacio. A few weeks ahead of the trip we’ll take care of booking you onto the most suitable flight depending on your arrival time. Please try to make sure you land into Belize City before 2pm on day 1.
- If we are unable to book your domestic flight to San Ignacio we will arrange a land transfer as an alternative.
- Hotels in Belize are not quite up to the standard of the Caribbean as a whole, but the beautiful landscape and incredible experiences on offer more than make up for this.
- Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control. From time to time we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh
