Rainforest Activities 

At the Blue Creek Rainforest Station the Mayan guides and Station Manager have created a number of activities designed to expand our learning of their lands. Please read the activities listed below to gain a better understanding for the correct clothing and equipment needed for each as well as the physical nature of some. All activities have the potential to require long pants and long shirts depending on the nature of the hike and the weather conditions of the day. Water is one of the most important items in the climate you are about to enter. The Blue Creek sites do not provide water bottles. The purified water they use is bottled in five-gallon containers. Please bring your own drinking containers along with a carrying device, as some of the hikes are long or arduous. If you are interested in the more involved and athletically challenging activities, hiking boots or sneakers with good tread are a must. For some caving activities a headlamp is required, please read below.

bulletOther activities may also be available during your stay at Blue Creek. Check with the station manager.

* Can involve very strenuous hiking in hot sun for several hours/miles. With the Long Cave, the trip includes scaling walls and may involve the use of ropes. These trips are only for the guests in excellent physical condition.

(Use of the Blue Creek Canopy SkyWalk has unfortunately been halted, pending its rebuilding, due to the Hurricane of October, 2001. Upon its repair, the following will again be in effect!) All guests are welcome to use the SKYWALK, the only canopy walk found within Belize. Travel high above Blue Creek on suspension bridges. Climb 120 feet into the canopy. Trained guides will outfit you with safety equipment and accompany you on your climb. A comprehensive liability release must be signed prior to your trip, or on site. The Skywalk system is inspected on a yearly basis for safety reasons.


With the Mayan Village of Blue Creek so close to the Blue Creek field site, you will have a chance to meet many people from this community while you are staying at Blue Creek. This community is rich in culture and knowledge of the surrounding habitat. There is much that this village has to offer and teach, and you are highly encouraged to interact with village members. Please remember that you are from a different culture and that you are a guest. During the process of conversation it is possible for misunderstandings and confusion to be encountered by both sides. In order to ensure that interactions between you and members of the Blue Creek Community are rewarding and void of misunderstanding, please keep the following in mind:

We hope that you decide to visit this wonderful rainforest site. It will not only be an adventure, but also you will bring home memories that will last you a lifetime. Blue Creek's beauty is immeasurable and worth the trip. Although accommodations are somewhat rustic, the jungle is awesome!!
