Macal River

Running through the beautiful Chiquibul Rainforest, the Macal River is one of the most diverse ecological areas in Belize. Being home to more than a dozen endangered species included the jaguar, the tapir, the scarlet macaw, and the black howler monkey, the Macal River Valley is heaven to any nature lover. 

Some sites along the river worth visiting include Cahal Pech, an ancient Mayan city, the Belize Botanic Gardens, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, and the city of San Ignacio.

Experience this stunning environment rich in flora and fauna while paddling your way through the beautiful Belizean jungle. If you're in Belize in March, be sure to catch the annual La Ruta Maya Canoe Race, a four day race originating on the Macal out of San Ignacio. 

Practical Info

To explore the Macal River, you can find multiple canoe or kayak rental agencies in San Ignacio, but being that some of the river is considered to be between Class III and V whitewater runs, be sure to receive proper training and take appropriate safety measures.
