This excursion takes you through the history books of Belize, with a trip to the beach thrown in for good measure. You’ll start at the Old Belize Museum, where the premier exhibition is inspired by the country’s colourful rainforest. It even has a waterfall and a limestone cave to bring the nature-based stories to life, plus guides telling tales of the nation’s colonial past. When you’ve had your fill of facts, head outside and you’ll find manmade Kukumba Beach. There’s a 90-foot waterslide which rushes into the Caribbean Sea, and you can relax under thatched parasols on the sand. If you want to whet your whistle, there’s a handy beach bar serving cocktails and snacks. You’ll split nearly four hours between the two, before heading back to the ship.
