A true escape means more than fantastic meals and a beautiful place to lay your head – although we’re certainly happy to accommodate both here at Sleeping Giant.

More than that, though, we want you to gain a true understanding of life here in the Mayan heartland. For that reason, we offer a huge range of activities, from hiking to rappelling, bird-watching to river-tubing. See ceremonial cites, walk the ruins of our ancestors and drink in the beauty that is Belize by exploring your options below. When you’re worn out, return to the lodge and grounds for drinks, food, massages and more. We can’t wait to see you off … and welcome you back!
