Spend a relaxing day at Bacab Eco Park surrounded by nature at its best. Start and end your Belize adventure traveling between Bacab Eco Park and your ship in an air-conditioned motor coach and learn about the country, its natural wonders, diverse culture and history from your guide. Upon entering the park and throughout the recreation area you’ll see tropical wildflowers, flowering trees and shrubs from which native butterflies and hummingbirds drink sweet nectar. An elevated palmetto boardwalk leads you under the shade of orchid laden bullet trees and Palmetto Palms to the main recreation area featuring the restaurant, bar and an exotic swimming pool area. Kick off your shoes and relax in a hammock in the shade of a buttonwood tree. At your leisure, enjoy a delicious truly Belizean lunch prepared just for you served buffet style. If relaxing is not for you, then learn about the many uses of native plants on Ixchel’s Walk, a self-guided medicinal, botanical trail. You can also stroll along a winding pathway in the Wild Wings Butterfly House when available at a small additional charge. Here you’ll learn about the intricate lives of native Central American butterflies. Note: Wear a swimsuit and closed-toe shoes and bring sunglasses, a hat, towel and sunscreen. Insect repellant should be put on, only after the butterfly visit. Must be able to walk 300 yards. Butterfly house when available carries a small additional charge. Free Wifi service is offered.

I did this excursion in December 2014. I chose the basic Bacab Eco Park excursion - no kayaking, horseback riding, or bicycling. I found the park to be very relaxing. They have a very large pool, with a separate area for children. The adult pool has a waterfall and a hidden slide. The venue provides food - which tasted good. There is also a short (approx. 1/2 mile) nature trail you can walk along. You can walk it on your own and read the info signs or you can take a guided tour. The trees and plants are medicinal, not floral. The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful.
I found this excursion to be very relaxing and educational.

Thought this would be a really cool excursion - learning experience - fun. It was none of the above. It was basically a long trip into Belize to go to a swimming pool - a nice pool - but still just a swimming pool. The butterfly house was a joke. The botanical trail was too. The only good thing besides laying in the pool was the Belizean meal. It was pretty good.
LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT TOUR, WHAT A WAKE UP. THE BUS RIDE WAS LLLOOONNNGGG, TOO LONG. OVER VERY ROUGH ROADS AND THE SPEED LIMT FOR BUSES AND TRUCKS ARE 15 MPH, TOO LONG TO GET TO PARK. THE BUTTERFLY BUILDING WAS SMALLER THAN MY BUTTERFLY GARDEN I HAVE AT HOME. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS GOOD WAS THE SHOWING OF THE START TO FINISH OF THE BUTTERFLY. SAVE YOUR MONEY
