HOPKINS, Belize- Travelers to Belize can see a wealth of wildlife on land, in the air, and beneath the ocean's surface.
Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort helps guests experience the best of Belize on and off-shore, from whale sharks to lionfish, jaguars to scarlet macaws.
<!--[ As the full moon rises in March, April, May, and June, a gentle giant appears off the Belize coast in Gladden Spit. Whale sharks are drawn by their favorite snack, mutton and cuberra spawn. With visibility often over 100 feet this is an incredible snorkeling and scuba diving experience.
<!--[ The world's only jaguar preserve, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is also home to pumas, ocelots, tapirs, howler monkeys, margays, foxes, and more. Day trips into the park are popular, though night hikes are more likely to reveal these nocturnal cats. Knowledgeable local guides can point out flora and fauna along the way.
<!--[ February and March bring a rare opportunity, when the scarlet macaw migration takes place in the foothills of the Maya Mountains. While watching for the bright red, green, and yellow plumage of the scarlet macaws, travelers should also keep an eye out for colorful parrots, toucans, and white eagles who share the hills. Belize has over 500 species of birds, a paradise for new and experience birders alike.
<!--[ While the Belize Barrier Reef and nearby Belizean atolls have scores of tropical fish and corals, one invasive species has recently attracted attention for its destructive appetite. The lionfish, recognized by its bright stripes and venomous spines, is a recent resident of the Caribbean causing havoc with its voracious appetite and lack of natural predators. Hamanasi has created a lionfish spear fishing adventure, allowing guests to help capture the culprits. A private divemaster leads the two tank trip, first demonstrating how to safely spear fish the animals and then allowing divers a try. The day's catch, a local delicacy, often winds up on the dinner table.
Wildlife adventures can be paired with spacious beachfront or private tree house accommodations. Award-winning customer service, stunning scenery, and culinary delights await all guests at Hamanasi.
