Day 3

Offers guests a chance to relax and choose from the activities and amenities around the Lodge.  You can spend all day relaxing around the swimming pool or in the hammocks on your verandah, explore the Lodge’s trails or mess around in kayaks and inner tubes on the river.  Mountain bikes are also available for guests who want to strike out on their own and explore the locality.

Day 4

A twenty minute drive into Punta Gorda on the coast, then into a motor boat to begin this idyllic tour through some of the most beautiful of Toledo's offshore cayes.  The Port Honduras Marine Reserve is one of the newest conservation areas in Belize and you will visit the ranger station on tiny Abalone Caye.  Climb the observation tower for a magnificent view of the Bay of Honduras and it's many emerald cayes. As you make your way out to the Snake Cayes, keep your eyes open for Manatee, Dolphins, Magnificent Frigate Birds and Brown Boobies.  You will snorkel, swim and lunch on West Snake Caye renowned for its crystal clear, turquoise waters.  In the afternoon, once outside the Marine Reserve, your guide will undoubtedly suggest a bit of fishing on the way home.  People in Toledo love to fish and these are, after all, some of the best fishing grounds in the Caribbean. You may catch your own dinner of snapper, barracuda, grouper or kingfish.  You may, however, choose to let others do the work and just lie back and enjoy the late afternoon breeze over the water.

Day 5

Breakfast at the Lodge and opportunity to have a last walk around the Lodge.  If your flight departure from Punta Gorda allows we will drop your luggage off at the air terminal and then leave you on Front Street to explore PG and its market (Saturday, Monday, Wednesday & Friday) before boarding your onward flight.
