Experience one of Belize’s most important rivers — the Belize River — on a canoeing trip from San Ignacio. With an experienced guide, float with the current, starting near the origin point where the Mopan River and Macal River meet right outside San Ignacio. You’ll experience Belize’s lush tropical environment and see local wildlife like monkeys, iguanas, toucans and parrots. It’s a fun and family-friendly way to get out and explore a piece of Belize!

The launch point for your Belize River canoeing trip is just outside of town, so after pickup in the morning from your San Ignacio hotel, your adventure will begin almost right away! A brief safety introduction will start things off before you hop into your canoe and set off down the river; each canoe holds two to three people.
The Belize River flows for approximately 180 miles (290 km), from its origin where the Mopan and Macal rivers meet at San Ignacio to its emptying point at the Caribbean Sea. Following your experienced guide, paddle just a small stretch of the river for three to four hours, depending on the daily conditions and how many breaks your group wishes to make.
As you float down the river, experience the same method of travel that ancient traders did when they used the river to shuttle goods between Mayan cities. Keep your eyes open for animals that live in and around the river, including howler monkeys, iguanas, keel-billed toucans (Belize’s national bird), herons, parrots and parakeets. You’ll also see native plant life like bromeliads and orchids.
When you reach the end point of your canoeing tour, you’ll be returned to your hotel in San Ignacio.
