One of our most commonly asked questions here at Rivers & Oceans is the inevitable “What is the bathroom situation when rafting the Grand Canyon?”. While we wish it was just as simple as plumbing pipes and flushable toilets, we’re here to talk about The Groover, which is the next best thing.
Mayan ruins, epic waterfalls, lush rainforest – Bocawina National Park in the Maya Mountains of Belize provides an explorer’s paradise. Located on the eastside of the mountain range with views of the Caribbean makes this one of Belize’s hidden gems. Experience over 7,000 acres of pristine, lush wilderness filled with rich Mayan history and exotic wildlife.
From aerial views, the Great Blue Hole of Belize is exactly that – a massive, circular abyss of sapphire water. Considered to be a “bucket-list” item of Belize, the Great Blue Hole formed a sinkhole with the collapse of a cavern tens of thousands of years ago. The hole is 984 feet across and 410 feet deep – a football field (360 feet) seems minuscule in comparison. In the 1960’s, Jacques Cousteau brought attention to this spot when he dubbed it one of the top ten diving places in the world and it’s easy to see why.
