Ziplining courses are not uncommon in Belize, but this new set-up in thick jungle off the Hummingbird Hwy claims to be among the fastest and most exhilarating around, with eight lines and 16 platforms. Even more adventurous is rappelling down 400ft Angel Falls – book ahead. Easier tours include birdwatching, nature trails and river tubing.

A very stylish ecolodge was due to open here at the time of writing; as part of the resort visitors can make use of the jungle restaurant, nature trails and swimming holes.
