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 Maya 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.

  • Outstanding! Our guide was waiting for us with a sign as we got off the water taxi from San Pedro.
    Loved the private experience and personal one on one treatment at the ruins and at the cave tubing. It felt like an outing with a friend rather than a tour. Professional, friendly, and informative.

  • This was definitely a great tour encompassing both things we were interested in on the same day. Since we were cruising, only had a single day in the country, and had very limited time with it being a tender port, it did feel very rushed. I would recommend picking one activity or the other if you only have about seven hours in the country since there's a good deal of driving between locations. That said, our guide, Kent, made the driving time absolutely worth it since he kept up an interesting and informative conversation throughout the entire ride, pointing out interesting things to see so there was never a dull moment. If you only have plans to visit the one time and want to do both activities, this is probably the best way to do so.

  • We were met at the port by our guide Gerson--very easy to find and on time. He was a great guide, very knowledgeable, and smart! It was raining when we got to Belize City, so he suggested that we go to the cave tubing first since it would be out of the rain. We were the first tour through the caves that morning, which was amazing. Very easy walk to the entrance of the caves. The water level was low, so he had to spend some time wading and pulling us through, which he did without complaint! Loved this part of the tour--an experience that should not be missed. After the cave tubing, we went up to Altun Ha, and arrived just after the last tour bus left--we had the place to ourselves. Gerson was full of information and answered every question that we had. Because of his creative thinking and flexibility of scheduling, not to mention his awesome driving skills! we made back to port ahead of schedule, allowing us time for shopping and a little more sightseeing. His English was perfect, and he understood every corny joke and innuendo that we made!

  • This tour was the best. My boyfriend and I watched tour buses take 45 minutes to just get off the bus and take a bathroom break. This tour allowed us to get in and out of places more quickly. That being said, we went to a bunch of places to take photos and learn more about the history of Belize. I have raved about this tour experience and forever will spoil ourselves with private tours from here on out.

  • Loved it! Some fun with some history and a truer sense of country, history, culture, politics. Our guide, Gavin, was amazing - knowledgeable, passionate, energetic. So much better than I and #39;d expected or hoped and a significant better than the cruise ship offered. Highly recommend!

  • I sent in a very positive review of the tour the first time I received the request so am confused why I'm still being asked to review the tour

  • We loved our private tour and our guide. The cave tubing was amazing! Since we got off the boat a little late we didn't have time for both, so our guide took us to the baboon sanctuary which was very cool. Would definetly reccommend.
