Belize is known for being one of the top vacation destinations as demonstrated by its inclusion in Fodor’s Go List 2018 (the 10th of 52 destinations on the list). Belize offers a great deal for all visitors to enjoy and this month we will focus on one of the most exciting and popular activities – a Belize zipline tour.
For those that have not taken a zipline tour before, it involves “flying” through the air in the jungle using a pulley suspended on a stainless-steel cable mounted on a hill or slope. You will be propelled by gravity, suspended many feet in the air, from the top to bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to the freely moving pulley as shown in the pictures below.
Adrenaline junkies and adventure seekers love this tour and we can offer it at two great locations.

If you crave more excitement, then combine both runs – 9 runs, 15 platforms, a jungle lift, and 2,700 feet of adrenaline-pumping ziplining!
Jaguar Paw Ziplining

Regardless of which choice you make the duration of the tour will be about four hours and the intensity of the tour is moderate, so most people can participate.
