“Inland Adventures in Belize for All”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

My husband, 2 adult children and I recently completed a trip to Belize. We booked with Belize Nature Travel as they were very prompt and thorough at responding to my inquiries. I had been to San Ignacio before, so I wanted to see a few new sights.
Two of us did not make our connecting flight in the US, so we had to do some rearranging of our schedule. This required two airport pick ups. Luis and Rene made sure we were able to accomplish almost all of our plans and Rene put in one very long day to make it all happen. They were both very knowledgeable and friendly and we had a wonderful time. We toured the Mayan sites of Cahal Pech, El Pilar and Xunantunich, as well as canoed through Barton Creek Cave. We added a few stops along the way and both gentlemen were so accommodating. I learned a lot on this trip. We would even stop the vehicle along the way to make bird sighting. I was able to discuss other sights with Luis and realized there is even more to see that just what the guidebooks say.
My family highly recommends Belize Nature Travel and Luis Godoy (and Rene). Tours adaptable to all interests and ages. We will return!

“Great Caracol tour plus tropical birds waching.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

To get to Caracol is long way, tskes exact 2hours and half. But we didn't get bored at all because the guide showed us wild animals on the way. We saw a Keel-billed Toucan flying, giant foot prints of Tapir. At Caracol Maya site, so many beautiful Yellow tail birds welcomed us! On the way back to San Ignacio town, two huge wild turkey showed up in front of the car. And luckily we had chance to see more toucans which are Keel-billed and Collared aracari. It is all because Mr. Luis, a tour guid knows pretty much about the jungle and he has the eyes to capture animals! If we went by ourselves, we could never see those birds! And also you will like the stories of his animal experiences that he would tell you.

“One of the Best!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We exchanged several emails with Luis before hiring him as our tour guide. He was very patient and answered every question, proposing alternatives that fit better with what we wanted to see and do. We were very happy with our arrangements, We went on two wonderful tours of Caracol and Xunantunich. Luis also provided us with a transfer to our next hotel which went flawlessly. Luis recommended Crystal Paradise to stay while we were in the San Ignacio area, and that recommendation was a very good one - if you are staying in the area of San Ignacio you can't go wrong at Crystal Paradise.

“Luis Godoy: expert in many fields”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Just got back from a group March breach trip with 13 teens and three adults. Luis took care of every detail. He took us to out of the way places and was always quick to point out birds and plants of interest. He moved easily from being an archeologist to a botanist (including a specialty in orchids) a geologist and and a historian. He was friendly and helpful to deal with specific needs and had great stories to tell including his own experiences living in the jungle as a boy. The food was amazing including picnic lunches made by local people: warm tortillas, spicy chicken and the list goes on. I would definitely book with him again. He was efficient and thoughtful and his passion for the country was clear. He is also able to guide tours throughout Central America.

“Skip the large groups and go with Luis.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Luis Godoy runs a small business focused on a great a customer experience. We used him for our trips to both ATM and Tikal. Luis has great guides, bi-lingual, years of experience, all licensed, and with good vans that can handle the rough roads. ATM is an amazing experience you'll never forget. Adventure, archeology, Mayan ritual, wading across 3 river crossings, and wading/swimming through a cave all in one day. Luis only takes small groups and I'd recommend paying a premium if you can to keep the group at a minimum of 4. (It's easy for the group to get strung out in a cave. Our group only had 2. ) Bring only a small bag with a change of clothes which will stay in the van. Don't bring money or anything else. (ATM no longer allows cameras, but Lois emailed us over 50 fantastic pictures of the place, which are better than I could have taken.) Water shoes are a must and you have to take them off and wear socks while in the sacred area at the end of the cave. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and supply lunch. At ATM he provided a great sack lunch. For Tikal, we left early (7AM) to avoid the crowds and had a great Guatemalan breakfast near where they did "Survivor Tikal". Billie (our guide to Tikal) stopped often at our request to take pictures of the Mayan villages along the way. (Grinding corn, washing clothes in the lake, woman carrying jugs on their heads, kids gathering wood. You won't want to miss it.) If you only go to one Mayan site, Tikal is the best. You'll easily see why it’s both a cultural and natural World Heritage Site. Lunch is at a beautiful restaurant on the grounds of Tikal park. On the trip to Tikal, Luis took us from San Ignacio to the Guatemalan border, where we went through customs/immigration and were picked up on the other side by Billie, our guide. The transfer worked flawlessly in both directions.
Tip: If you easily get cold, my wife recommends a 3 mil long sleeve scuba top for ATM, which worked great. I was fine in a polyester T-shirt.
