Paddling down Golden Stream River with a Ya’axché Ranger is a great way to experience the Golden Stream Corridor Preserve. Prepare for a journey that is calming while exploring nature as you feel the coldness of fresh water. You get to explore wildlife or footprint sightings while dipping your paddles down the calming river. Watching and taking in the natural surroundings while you are seated in your kayak always offer you relaxation or calmness.
You can challenge your agility and have fun while kayaking and enjoying the riverbank encounters and sightings. You will likely get a bit wet and should expect to have to carry your craft over some of the shallows at times. Taking a quick swim is an option. This ecotour requires being sure to be footed in the water and you must be an experienced freshwater kayaker and swimmer. This tour experience is one of a kind that most visitors rarely experience when visiting Belize as it will surely provide you with unique adventures and appreciation of nature.
Fitness level: Moderate but must have freshwater kayaking and swimming experience
Note: Kayaking is subject to river conditions and weather during the dry and wet seasons. If planning a tour during April/May and July/August, please contact us to check availability.
We are more than happy to amend the itinerary to meet your needs based on your time and length of stay in the Toledo District, southern Belize.

- Non-aerosol, eco-friendly bug spray
- Eco-friendly sunscreen
- Hat with a brim and/or bandana
