    Brilliant holiday. Very non-touristy (apart from the last 3 days. but by then we really deserved just lying on the beach or doing touristy things such as snorkelling and shopping!)What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?When our camp was flooded and we had to sleep in 'emergency' accomodation in the local village.It wasn't the best night sleep as roosters, howler monkeys and jungle birds kept us awake all night, but it was an exciting event demonstrating both the wildlife and how the local people live. This was a real life experience that you won't find in a holiday resort. There were so many more moments I found inspirational- Going into the ATM cave with all of the Mayan relics and sacrificial remains (unmoved since 200-600AD, where else can you see that?), dinner by candle light in the Guatemalan jungle prepared by a local cook,  snorkeling with nurse sharks, stingrays and many other brightly coloured fish on the coral reef, learning to make chocolate the proper way, the wildlife-spotting boat trip along the river near Crooked Tree and many other activities besides.What did you think of your group leader?David was brilliant. Whenever there was a little issue, he solved it before it became a problem.His calmness and his sense of humour definitely contributed to our experience and made even unexpected setbacks such as flat tires in the middle of nowhere and a flooded campsite an exciting holiday.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Belize is very un-touristy (apart from the Cayes). travellers should be able to put up with very basic but clean accomodation in certain areas.Also, I always thought the rainy season is not a good time to travel...due to the high humidity, I think all group members were actually pleased when it did start raining though as the heat was incredible. Is there anything else you would like to add?All in all, this holiday had something for everyone and if you like a reasonably easy-going holiday (though with some early starts in the morning) with lots of nature-watching, you'll really enjoy this.  Tourism is (deservedly) on the increase here but still in a developmental stage.  If you go now, your experiences (and photographs!) will be largely free of other tourists which is a real bonus.  Bare in mind this is a laid-back Caribbean country so take your foot off the pedal and relax on this trip, you may get frustrated at lack of immediacy if you don't.

    An excellent trip that covers a lot in two weeks.  Mayan Ruins at Tikal, caving underground at ATM cave, the birds of Crooked Tree and snorkeling with sharks and stingrays.  This trip has it all.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Wading through water and climbing rocks to visit the Crystal Maiden skeleton in ATM cave.  Four hours of effort traveling underground was worth every step to visit this amazing site.Also - swimming with nursh sharks, stingrays and loggerhead turtles in Hol Chan.What did you think of your group leader?David was a very good leader with an impressive breadth of knowledge, from Mayan history to local wildlife.  When things went wrong (burst tyres, hospital visits, washed out camp site, we had it all!) he always managed the situation calmly and things were sorted with the minimum of fuss.  Just what you want from a leader.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?This is a busy and active trip.  You will be tired.  You will be hot. But you will enjoy it and have a great time.ATM cave is challenging and not for the feint-hearted, but our whole group managed to do it.  Can you do it? Yes you can!

    An exciting trip sampling the highlights of Belize, with a touch of Guatemala thrown in too.  A great mix of birdwatching, more active things like caving and kayaking, plus some time to relax on the beach at the end - a brilliant combination really!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Difficult to choose, the bird watching at Crooked tree was fantastic, the Mayan ruins at Tikal were great as was camping in the Guatemalan forest and waking to the screams of the howler monkeys, and chilling out on San Pedro at the end was brilliant. I'd have to chose the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) caving as the absolute highlight though - a large cave system that you have to swim to access, with lots of Mayan artefacts that can be seen in situ (rather than in a museum) plus few skeletons too! Its quite challenging but great fun and very rewarding.What did you think of your group leader?David was excellent, he had great knowledge of the areas visited and was very passionate about the people and history. He has a good sense of humour too.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Take a top to swim in on the snorkelling tour to avoid sunburn, even with suncream on the carribean sun is unrelenting and will likely get through!Beware of the hot-sauce on the tables at each meal! Or challenge yourself to try them all if you like that sort of thing!Is there anything else you would like to add?This is a great trip with a variety of activities - bird watching, Mayan ruins, interaction with local communities, caving, kayaking and a few days on a caribbean beach to unwind at the end of it all.
