2010/2011 Belize Season Preparations... Over the last 8 weeks my team has been working hard to get the trip pieces in place for our upcoming 2010/2011 Season in Belize, and now Mexico. All group lodge and special site reservations have been confirmed by our suppliers. We are now receiving our new equipment orders and preparing them for container shipment to Belize ahead of the season opening. Over the next 3 to 4 weeks, guide and yoga instructor schedules will be finalized.

Tropical vacations appeal to many travelers because of the outstanding climate and beautiful scenery that tropical countries have to offer. While warm weather and plenty of sunshine provide excellent conditions for outdoor adventures and enjoying gorgeous beaches, the same combination can also lead to sunburn and dehydration when travelers are not careful. Fortunately however, simply by preparing yourself for such conditions and taking certain precautionary measures, you can protect yourself from the sun and heat so you will be able to enjoy every moment of your tropical getaway.
