Belmopan City Travel Guide
Canoeing and Kayaking
The Belize River, wide and mostly gentle (Class I–II) offers good canoeing and kayaking. It was once used by loggers to transport mahogany to Belize City and hosts the annual La Ruta Maya Mountains to the Sea Canoe Race. The multiday race is held in March during the Baron Bliss holiday. You can also canoe or kayak portions of the Caves Branch River (also Class I–II). Many hotels and lodges arrange canoe or kayak trips, including Caves Branch Adventure Co. & Jungle Lodge (822/2800), off the Hummingbird Highway. Full-day canoe or kayak trips start at around BZ$120 per person.
