Isla San Andres, San Andres Island Exploration
Your San Andres Island will show you “El Hoyo Soplador” (Blowing Hole). This is a natural phenomenon, (it is the islanders’ pride and joy), which is very much dependent on sea conditions. It is produced by a series of subterranean tunnels and crevices in the coral reefs that meet and come together just a few meters from shore. At high tide when a wave comes in through the tunnels with sufficient force, the compressed air in the tunnels comes rushing out the hole and natives exclaim, “hush, the hole’s blowing.’’  Experience a traditional island neighborhood in the San Luis area, a big tourist attraction with beautiful white sandy beaches that contrast magnificently with the blue and green Caribbean’s ocean colors.  Head to La Loma and visit the oldest Baptist church in the Americas and the most representative monument on the Island.  It was built with pinewood, brought all the way from Alabama. The church dates back to 1846 and the chapel was built in 1896. Many Baptist from around the world have come here to pay homage. And they say that inside the church a spiritual magic is felt that invites one to meditate.  On to Morgan’s Cave.  This part of the Tour will take you down to the famous labyrinth that opens onto an all but deserted beach.  The beach has remained almost undisturbed because it’s so hard to reach.  Local legend has it that pirates hid treasure within the cave.  This has yet to be proven.

Belize City, Howler Monkey Sanctuary
Visit the Community Baboon Sanctuary, and be inspired by their success story in the protection of the Black Howler Monkeys (Baboons in Creole). Established in 1985, this baboon sanctuary was set up as a cooperative agreement among 12 local farmers and landowners in Bermudian Landing who voluntarily agreed to preserve the area’s black howler monkey habitat as a way to support the local economy by drawing in tourism and creating jobs. Today, CBS is more than just a wildlife conservation area. The program has become such a success that over 220 private landowners across seven Creole villages participate, and the entire community works to protect the forests and rivers. Years of grassroots conservation efforts are showing the results: the black howler population has grown from a couple of hundred to over 2,000 monkeys, and now their high numbers provide visitors with guaranteed sightings. The CBS is a wonderful place to experience the wonders of a Belizean Rainforest first hand. The visit will begin at the visitor's center, where a knowledgeable local guide will explain the project and then take the group for a small tour of the property where you can expect to experience Black Howler Monkeys firsthand, wonder at the majesty of the rainforest, and learn about traditional rainforest plants and medicine.

Cozumel, Cozumel Highlights with Windstar Hotel Transfer
This tour combines Mayan traditions, Mexican proud (Tequila) and ancient customs, art, and buildings.  Sights, scenery and shopping, are all included, so you won’t have to choose between the three.  The day will start off with a coach tour to the Discover Mexico theme park. Check out the miniature replicas of Mexico’s most iconic sights and buildings before heading on to Kun Che Park for a unique and exclusive Mayan Ritual, a Ball game performance. A must-see experience. A traditional Mayan Shaman will welcome you and invite you for spiritual purification in Mayan language. Then you will head to a Mayan house where traditional tortillas, “Chaya” green leaf tamal, and chocolate are waiting for you to try. Next up, you’ll hop over to the island’s east coast, where ribbons of untouched sand set the scene. You’ll make a stop at El Mirador, a ruggedly beautiful rock formation that juts out to sea. 

Please note: Wear comfortable shoes and clothes, sunscreen, and a hat. A cold towel will be handed out in the Kun Che Park, before the Mayan Ball Game Performance. The end of the tour drop off is at the Windstar hotel.
