We will enjoy a relaxing evening on board the ship.
Day 4: BELIZE SERVICE & RUINS
Today is a full day in Belize! The port in Belize requires a boat tender to reach the shore. This is all part of the fun! Once we are all in the port we will meet and be introduced to our Tour Guide for the day. He will lead us to our service destination located in the Carmelita Village as well as to one of the most impressive destination sites in Belize. The Lamoni ruin excursion today not only showcases many of the beauties and wonders of Belize, but it also has significance to those of the LDS faith. This will be a fantastic day seeing the sights and sounds of Belize as well as providing service to a local school.

Revive has two beautiful orphanages in Roatan and both are in need or your help! We’ll be providing basic maintenance and interacting with the children. We’ll finish our shore experience at Gumbalimba Park, a one-day destination dream. We’ll have the option to; become acquainted with monkeys and parrots in a natural setting, tour the history of the island, ride a zipline through the jungle canopy, explore the wildlife down under while breathing underwater, kayak the picturesque shoreline, eat at a poolside cafe, and just hang out in a hammock or lounge chair on the beach! (some of those activities require additional fees). From treetops to sea chests there are adventures that abound! This evening we will enjoy another relaxing evening on the ship.
