Know More about this tour

This tour will take you to visit a Mayan ruin where you can learn about a great civilization that inhabited Belize over 3,000 years ago. Journey through the Mayan underworld, tubing through underground caves over 175,000 years old as your headlights reveal many untouched crystal formations below the surface of the earth.

Altun Ha was first settled somewhere around 250 BC, with construction of the buildings beginning in 100 AD and continuing throughout the Classic Period that ended in the 10th century. Some 10,000 Mayans lived in and around Altun Ha, which was a significant trading center as evidenced by the large amounts of jade and obsidian excavated here in the early sixties and seventies.

Altun Ha Tour: spanning a 25 square mile area roughly an hour from Belize City, Altun Ha is made up of two central plazas surrounded by towering temples that enclose the palm strewn land. The larger of the two plazas, Plaza A, is the site of a mysterious tomb discovered beneath one of the temples called Temple of the Green Tomb. Jade, jewelry, flints and skins are among the three hundred remnants that were unearthed here.

Cave tubing provides thrills to suit nearly any age and fitness level. After a brief 30-minute hike to the entrance of the cave, inner tubes are used to float along the Caves Branch River. See your light flicker upon strange shapes and the ultimate darkness beyond.
Hear the echo of your own voice bounce off the distant walls. Listen to the water dripping from the ceiling, creating spectacular formations in the stunning chambers. And while you might be expecting dark and claustrophobic passageways, you are likely to find enormous chambers and cathedral-sized rooms.
You will be driven back to your hotel or cruise port at the end of the tour.

  • We booked the private tour and it was wonderful! Our tour guide, Jerson, was amazing! Very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and general knowledge about Belize. We spent the whole day with him and really enjoyed his friendliness, sense of humor and professionalism. This was our first time to see Mayan ruins and they are quite impressive. The Cave Tubing is a must! Unlike anything we had seen before. We were glad we choose to include both locations on our excursion. FYI - It is required that you wear tennis shoes or pool shoes on the tubing. They rent 3 and sell 10 shoes there. Nice bathroom facilities at the Caves so you can change in and out of your suit there if you don't want to wear it under your clothes. You WILL get wet from your bottom down. We were very happy with this company and this excursion!

  • We had a nice time on this tour. Our tour guide, Davin, took the time to wait for our friends because we had gotten separated the day before. He was very knowledgeable and told about different plant species, termiteswhich three of us tried-nutty taste, and even showed us the money tree. The caves were phenomenal and the formations were intricate. This tour was the best, most relaxing experience. At lunch we tried gibnut, a local dish which was quite tasty actually. The three if us who had it could understand why Queen Elizabeth had it on her last visit to Belize. The Mayan ruins at Altun ha were impressive and 4 of us climbed all the way to the top of one structure and were rewarded by awesome views. We highly recommend this tour!

  • Amazing trip! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

  • We were greeted by our tour guide holding a sign with my name on it which was absolutely great because we had no clue where to go meet because we had no wifi to pull up our voucher lol. Roberto Lopez was our amazing, very informative, very friendly, accommodating guide. We headed out to the caves for tubing, it's about an hours drive from the marina, and a 25min easy hike to the opening of the cave. The hike is very scenic but long. The river was calm so tubing and getting a history lesson about the caves was awesome! It's a short walk back after tubing. Next stop was lunch at a local restaurant along the way to Altun Ha, the food was great and the staff very friendly. The drive to the ruins was long, about a hour and a half so we didn't have a lot of time to spent visiting the ruins but because Roberto was very knowledgeable we learned a lot in the 30mins we were there. He was very conscious of the time we had to be back at the marina to catch the last tender, we made it back with 20 mins to spare! This was an awesomely amazing excursion made possible by our great guide Roberto! I will definitely book though this tour company again and request Roberto!

  • Awesome excursions. Our guide Keith was awesome.

  • Dorian was amazing and funny! Great guide!

  • Our tour guide was absolutely amazing! So knowledgable, funny, and kind. I would have never expected such an amazing experience. The cave tubing was such a blast- I have never experience water so fresh. I recommend stopping by the coconut stand for a refreshment! The ruins were also beautiful. Our guide was incredibly helpful and well spoken. Would take tours from him again any time!
