La Ruta Maya Canoe Race in Belize
Beginning in the scenic foothills of the Maya Mountains and finishing in the bustling port city of Belize City, the race will travel from West to East along the historic river trail of the Macal and Belize Rivers. Once the only link between the two coasts, these tributaries served as a major trading route for Belize's once powerful Mayan civilization. Today, the La Ruta Maya River trail still follows in the footsteps of its legendary past with a route of lush, unspoiled landscapes lined with exotic flora and fauna.
In addition to being hailed as Belize's most competitive sporting event, La Ruta Maya River Challenge is also one of the country's largest collaborative conservation efforts. Held in the spirit of preservation and revitalization of Belize's precious waterways, the La Ruta Maya will donate all proceeds to local environmental groups that help sustain and keep the river clean.
La Ruta Maya Canoe race passes by the front door of the Belize Jungle Dome and makes camp for the first stopover night on the river Bank next to the Lodge. Availability for a 3 Night minimum stay is still available to view the spectacular start of the second days racing. Contact Belize Jungle Dome on 501 (Belize country code) 822 2124 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
