Mennonite Community – Lagoon Kayak Expedition

Let’s take a drive across the Belize River aboard a hand crank ferry to this very amazing modern community called Spanish lookout. Established around 1958, it is a well-developed and fast-growing town in the Cayo District. The citizens of this community speak Plautdietsch (low German with Dutch influence meaning flat or low” (referring to the plains of northern Germany), and the name Dietsch corresponds etymologically to Dutch Duits and German Deutsch (both meaning “German”), most also speak English and Spanish.

It is largely an agricultural community with some light industry such as furniture making, prefabricated wood houses, find best ice-cream and the only oil field production in Belize. The Mennonite community plays an important role in the Belize economy, they produce products such as grains, vegetables, cattle, poultry, and dairy products. After spending some time and learning the history of the Mennonite community and having a taste of the Mennonite Belizean Cuisine, we would move on to something different and adventurous.

As we make our way to one of the best birding spots, starting with a drive, through the rolling hills of this wonderful community, enjoying the picturesque view of the Spanish lookout. The area consists, miles of developed open Savannah, and farmlands used for cattle grazing and agricultural products, such as corn and red kidney beans. Driving for a few more minutes we then enter a sub-tropical forest reserve.

Having several different habitats in the area, it makes a perfect birding destination for Yellow rumpled warblers, white-tailed kites, laughing falcon, fly-catchers, and more.

Barton Creek Cave Kayaking and Butterfly Farm

A GUIDE TO NATURE

Explore one of the longest subterranean Caves, the Barton Creek cave. kayak with us through the cave, the underworld of the ancient Maya. See Cultural remains that have been found within the first kilometer from the downstream entrance. This kilometer-long space contains ten ledges above the river with evidence of ancient Maya activity. The first ledge is located on the left just inside the entrance to the cave and continues to roughly 30 meters beyond the Maya Bridge that straddles the river. It is important to note that the so-called Maya Bridge was not constructed or modified in any way by the Maya.

The bridge is a natural flowstone formation left straddling the main passage when the level of the river dropped due to riverbed erosion. Indeed, all the ledges are the result of natural cave formation processes and were formed during the gradual dissolution of calcium carbonate deposits forming flowstone, stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations. Holes in the flowstone, are also predominantly natural features caused by either dripping water or bat feces that dissolves calcium carbonate  The Maya once utilize the cave ledges for ritual activities.

Barton Creek Cave is located in the Cayo district. Between limestone hills, covered with lush green vegetation you will find “Green Hills”, the Belize Butterfly Ranch, and Botanical Collections. We take you to see the many wonderful species of these tiny yet very important animals. Flocks of butterflies, from brilliant blue to gorgeous orange, dazzling yellow to intriguing gray, fly freely in a 3,300 sq. ft., beautifully landscaped flight area: The largest live butterfly display in Belize. Enjoy this time and intimate interaction with butterflies as your guide explains the importance, life stage, and diet of each species of butterfly.

Come be a part and enjoy this magnificent and amazing Kayaking Adventure prepared just for you.
