Trip Report Belize trip report: Tropical Edu Center, Glover's Reef, Crooked Tree

Jump to last reply

Just back from our Belize trip. We booked with a tour company, the first time we've used a tour company. Island Expeditions was a fantastic company to travel with, I would go with them again for sure!! We started with 1.5 days at the Tropical Education Center where we were taken on a cave innertubing float, ziplining, and then a night tour of the Belize zoo. The second day we headed for Dandrega via the Hummingbird Highway. The only complaint I had about that part of the trip is that we had no time to walk the trails at TEC! Our time was booked from breakfast to bedtime. But our guide was great and we had a fun time.

From Dandrega we took a large skiff out to Southwest Caye (pronounced "key") on Glover's Reef atoll. There we stayed in, well they called them tents but they were more like small, soft-sided cabins! Each one was on a wooden platform and had windows with screens. We had a community bathroom with composting toilets & rainwater showers. The tents are small but we spend only our sleeping time in them! We had 5 guides for 18 of us; very knowledgeable, safety conscious, and fun! We were on the caye for 5 days snorkeling, kayaking, kayak-sailing, and fishing. They had morning activities and more after lunch which you could opt out of if you wanted to just hang out in a hammock. We got to know the guides well and enjoyed their company both as guides and meal companions. And the meals - WOW!! Lots of fresh fish & seafood beautifully prepared, tons of fresh fruit, desserts, it was some of the best food I've had in Belize!

From there we had 2 days at Bird's Eye View Lodge at Crookedtree. Fantastic birdwatching, I highly recommend the pre-breakfast tour. Yes, it's early but if you're at all into birding you won't be sorry!

If you have specific questions about our trip I'd be happy to try to answer them!
