Grab your oar and get out there.

Canoeing

Whether you’re a beginner at canoeing or really know your way around a boat, we have the waterways for any paddling traveler. Tour companies and jungle lodges also cater to canoe travelers, with some of the best areas being on the Mopan and Macal Rivers in the Cayo District. There, you can paddle through the jungle, see wildlife, then make your way through little villages to get a look at how life is in less traveled areas. As long as you’re there, you may want to dock your boat and take a jungle hike or stop and say hi to the villagers. After all, just because the river keeps going doesn’t mean you can’t stop and make some new friends.
