Tropical Adventure Vacations

Posted by Admin December - 18 - 2011 Comments Off

The world over, tropical adventures abound!!

Exotic, far-flung and usually very scenic, tropical destinations by nature invite visitors to expand their inner sense of adventure. From the active lava flows of Hawaii’s Big Island to the healing traditions of the ancient Mayans to the jungles, caves and reefs of Belize, visitors seeking tropical adventures while on vacation will find abundant opportunities in a variety of tropical locales.

Temazcal Mayan Steamlodge Experience

The Aztec word “temazcal” literally translates to “house of steam.” A traditional ritualistic exercise of the ancient Mayans for centuries, this alternative experience provides relaxation of the body and rejuvenation for the spirit. Said to offer such benefits as fat elimination, alleviation of nervous system disorders and total body cleansing, the Mayan steam bath experience is led by a modern-day shaman who works with guests on all dimensional levels. The hour-long bath is followed by a dip in the freshwater cenote, which sits directly next to the temazcal. Fresh fruit and drinks are served in hammocks to complete the experience of idyllic rejuvenation.

Lava Ocean Adventures

In this ocean adventure from a one-of-a-kind perspective, visitors to the Big Island can witness live rivers of lava as they cascade down the pali (cliffs) from the vents and caldera of Kilauea Volcano, the most active volcano on earth. Depending on ever-changing conditions on land and access, viewing by boat may be the only way visitors can see active lava flows. Flowing into the sea, the molten rock (2,500 degrees Fahrenheit) presents a natural fireworks show, sparking and smoking in spectacular fashion when it hits the cold seawater. Because the best time to view flowing lava is always at night, these tours depart at 4:30 a.m. from Hilo Bay, although afternoon and sunset journeys are also available. Guests can purchase a souvenir DVD of their lava viewing adventure. It’s a labor of love for the guides: As 100-ton master Captain Shane Turpin says, “If the lava’s flowin,’ I’m goin’.” Lava Ocean Adventures 808-966-4200 lavaocean.com

Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

Travelers seeking adventure off Central America will find it with a visit to Belize’s 5,800-acre Caves Branch Estate, located in the Belize jungle under a forest canopy more than 100 feet tall. Among the activities offered at the resort are night safaris, river cave tubing, river hiking and mountain biking in the jungles, crystal and Mayan ceremonial cave expeditions and day excursions to the ruins at Tikal. More advanced cavers can try rappelling and spelunking. The property is also home to a 10-acre tropical botanical garden featuring rare orchids and bromeliads.
