We are really in the ADVENTURE business. Our niche tourist is in their 20's. Usually still in education getting a Bachelors,
or Masters Degree and adventurous wanting to see the world before settling down to a career and married family life, which
can be for the next 25 years.
Here are the going prices during 2007 for various adventures around Western Belize.
OUR SPECIAL IS A THREE NIGHT STAY AT THE HOSTEL AND TWO DAY ADVENTURE PACKAGE. The usual takers for this are those short
on time, with a one week vacation to the offshore barrier reef islands of Belize, doing some sailing and scuba diving, or
taking PADI certification. They usually want to split up the vacation and do some inland stuff.
For this we recommend arriving late afternoon by bus at the Hostel and doing the two major Maya ruins out here. These
are Xununtanich and Cahel Pech. Xununtanich is late CLASSIC hilltop ruin and Cahel Pech is pre-classic. Both hilltop temple
ruins and pyramids cover over 3000 years. We usually stop for lunch at Clarissa Falls and swim between ruins. Price is $22
USA and you have to pay for your own lunch, and archeological site entrance fees. Which are $5 USA each.
The second day we recommend a Tour Guide and arrange for you to do an ALL DAY trip to a remote CAVE entrance called
ACTUN TUNICHIL MUCKNAL, which can be arduous, you have to wade and swim some streams and crawl back in PITCH BLACK caves about
a mile to get to XIBALBA, a Mayan sacrifical site preserved PRISTINE with skeletons and pottery underground. The Tour Operator
supplies a lunch and ropes and cave hats and lamps. This is probably the biggest No. 1 attraction in the Maya circuit covering
Guatemala, Belize and Mexico. Very popular and 2007 rates were $80 USA and well worth it.
You can do other stuff if you have longer. Here are some rates. We simply hook you up over the phone with whoever
is running these adventures.

14 mile down river canoe trip $27.50 USA

( Prices are subject to change without notice ) We get different tour operators, depending on who is available, has a
group, or their vehicle hasn't broken down on the rough roads. We can expedite your adventure for you, but don't do them
ourselves. We simply have our pulse on who is reputable and is functioning at any given time.
