Bocawina takes full advantage of its eco-location with a variety of tours and adventures that guests can partake in. As mentioned, their famous zip-line is a popular choice, but there are others. With over 7100 acres of nature, the surrounding Mayflower Bocawina National Park is dotted with waterfalls, old Maya sites, and hiking trails that are a blast to explore.
The resort guides will set up excursions for you such as jungle hikes, birding expeditions, and waterfall climbing and repelling. In addition, the resort can also set up off-site excursions such as horseback riding, trips to Maya ruins, and cave tubing.
Bocawina does have an onsite bar for guests looking for a drink or two after-hours. However, you won't want to miss the main "nightlife" event, Night Flying on the zipline and hikes through the jungle where you will be able to spot bats, owls, and in some rare hikes, large cats.
