START YOUR JOURNEY

Yoga Journey to Belize

This Life Time journey takes us to the heart of some of the most enviable surroundings on earth, at once beautiful, serene and spiritual: the jungles of Belize. Perfect for true Yogis or those looking to grow their commitment to the art of yoga, we'll place our mats where the ancient Maya people once settled.

 

We'll spend our time in the Cayo District of Belize where the Mayan writing, or glyphs, were discovered and the richness of this advanced jungle civilization has recently come to light.  You'll have the chance to experience yoga at the base of one of the Mayans' most famed pyramids and lose yourself both mentally and physically to this powerful setting.

 

In between yoga classes in various settings, you'll have the chance to learn more about the rich heritage of Belize, experience unique active adventures (such as cave tubing, ziplining and others) or just enjoy the majestic sounds and surroundings of lush jungle life.

 

Yoga not your thing? This escape is great for solo travelers, couples and families looking for a healthy, active getaway experience. The country has so much to offer and we encourage participants to ask about unique extensions to our 5-day itinerary. Maybe you'd enjoy a trip to Ambergris Caye (located just off the coast in the Caribbean and home to the second largest barrier reef in the world), an excursion south to charming Placencia and the Monkey River (where manatees, howler monkeys and other wildlife are plentiful) or another customized experience that helps you experience Belize the way only you should.

Location - Cayo District

This district is often called the Wild West of Belize. The landscape is covered with jungle and woven with rivers. The lush area is also peppered with Mayan ruins, ranging from small, tree-covered hills to massive, magnificent temples that visitors can ascend to peer across the top of the jungle canopy. 

 

In addition to their temples, the Mayans left traces of their age-old rituals in caves all around the region. There is no adventure more thrilling than exploring a dark cavern, only to come across artifacts and skeletons from rituals held more than 1,000 years ago.

Eco-Lodge Accommodations

Guests will enjoy a welcoming stay at Chaa Creek, rated one of the world's best eco-lodges by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveller. "Wildly civilized" sums up their view of this award-winning Belize resort located in the heart of Maya civilization. 

 

The lodge was created to coexist with nature while creating a true jungle experience.  The result is an exquisite blend of natural beauty and man-made comforts, which is one of the Caribbean region’s best examples of sustainable, green tourism.

 

Chaa Creek is host to a variety of lodging options ranging from rustic Camp Casitas for those seeking an affordable glamping experience to luxurious suites that offer the finest comforts in Belize.
