If it’s adrenaline-fuelled adventure you crave, then why not give this waterfall-rappelling experience in the eco paradise of Belize a try? Plus you can reward yourself with a refreshing swim at the bottom!
This is one of many experiences included in this collection!
At first glance, the Bocawina Rainforest Resort in the Mayflower Bocawina National Park may seem like somewhere you’d go for pure relaxation in a gorgeous natural environment. That’s not strictly the case though - there’s also a great range of exciting activities you can do on-site, including waterfall rappelling - lowering yourself down the thundering falls using a rope system, accompanied by a trained guide to ensure you descend in a safe and correct manner.
There are two falls to choose from, Bocawina or Antelope. Both involve a hike through the rainforest to get to the top of the falls, with the Antelope being the longest. At the summit enjoy excellent views of the rainforest and the Caribbean sea. Then begin your descent, fully equipped with helmet and gloves. The Antelope Falls is 250ft (76m) in total, Bocawina 100ft (30m) - and at the bottom of it, a crystal-clear pool for you to cool off in before you head back. Totally exhilarating, guaranteed to get the blood pumping, and in a blissfully scenic environment to boot!
