What could be more relaxing than softly floating  on an inner tube down a beautiful, unspoiled river? We did it and there are not many things that we loved doing. You can enjoy the rich abundance of flora and fauna as you float through the jungle, including giant iguanas and colorful tropical birds. It is a mesmerizing experience. We also spotted many villagers washing their clothes or bathing in the river with their kids.

Where to stay

The Mopan River is close to San Ignacio and we stayed at the amazing Hidden Valley Inn & Reserve. You can escape from the World at this Hidden Treasure. There are over 90 miles (144 km) of hiking trails with an amazing number of waterfalls and wildlife.
