The Trek Stop and surrounding areas offer a wide variety of activities geared toward those interested in learning more about tropical biology, ecology, and archaeology.

Our location, an "edge" between river, woods, and agricultural land, makes it an ideal place to observe the flora and fauna of western Belize. The 40-year-old orchard of mango, coconut, crab, avocado, and mamay on the site attracts a wide variety of fruit-eating birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Use our extensive collection of reference books and your powers of observation to help add to our growing list of birds, insects, lizards, other animals, and plants that we've identified on the grounds.

Stroll along our signed nature trails to learn more about tropical plants and their use by Ancient and contemporary Maya, and check out the ancient Maya temple on our grounds to see the daunting task archaeologist’s face in reconstructing ancient ruins.

Test your throwing skills on our Jungle Frisbee Golf Course, the first disc golf course in Belize! It's FREE to registered guests

Visit our Tropical Wings Nature Center, with its interpretive center, butterfly house and farm, hummingbird and medicinal plant gardens, and gift shop.

Explore nearby Xunantunich, a partially reconstructed ancient Maya site featuring the second tallest temple in Belize.

Take nature walks in the surrounding countryside, swim, tube or kayak in the nearby Mopan River, or hike to more distant explorations. (We Do Not Have Tubes or Kayaks on the Premises for Rental)

Stroll to San José Succotz or Benque Viejo for a taste of life in contemporary Maya/Mestizo villages and towns, or hop a bus or share taxi to San Ignacio for a more urban change of pace.

Make day-trips to other points of interest in and around Cayo District. There are caves to explore: rivers, pools, and falls in swimming or canoeing, Maya ruins, wildlife areas for hiking and birding, horseback riding and more. We can help you plan and arrange day tours tailored to your interests.

Or just relax in a hammock with a cold Belikin and a selection from our extensive library of paperbacks.

And in the evening, if you still have energy after your day's activities, go for a night hike, watch a DVD, catch up on the news on cable tv, or use our free internet service to email your family and friends about the great adventure you're having!
