We are met at the airport and transported a few hours through beautiful Belize countryside to our separate bungalow lodging at the amazing location of Black Rock Lodge for 4 nights. In pristine mountain rain forest we enjoy Yoga every morning and Yamuna Body Rolling late afternoons in an outdoor thatch roof yoga pavilion, overlooking a pure river to tube down, mountains to climb, and birds to sight. One day excursion is to hike through rivers to a hidden cave, enter and be enchanted by a Mayan past. Another day we take a river pulley bridge to a fascinating Mayan ruin with guided tour and perhaps a local market visit. There is a free day where you can choose to bird watch, hike, visit another Mayan ruin, read in your hammock or visit waterfalls and swim. We then travel by bus to the coast, stopping for a lunch, and with luck a visit to a local village chocolate maker, board a boat and cruise out to our private island for the next 3 nights, in well appointed separate bungalows dotted around the island. Again morning yoga and setting sun Yamuna Body Rolling over the ocean on a thatched roof platform. Included in the price is 3 meals a day, 3 excursions, – Cave Adventure, Mayan Archeological Tour, Snorkeling Adventure, all transportation in Belize, and every morning Yoga Class and evening Yamuna Body Rolling Class with Melora, in lovely outdoor pavilions!
