    What to Expect
    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.

    We were met by our amazing tour guide Percy who took the time to explain all the details of belize. Cave tubing was wonderful, you're met by two men, one who rents crocs for the day, and one who is selling rum in coconuts. Afterwards you take a small hike to the entrance of the

    Our tour guide Paul, (or Laurence, as in Laurence Fishburne, as some people call him) was amazing. He is a native Belizean (??) and shared much of his country's history and his experiences with us. We are fascinated by that kind of stuff so it was fun to hear his stories as he

    We booked this tour last minute and loved it. We did the cave tour first to be ahead of the cruise boats. "The King" was a great guide and shared lots of facts about the caves. We had the caves pretty much to ourselves. Beautiful! Paul took over as our guide after the caves.

    We booked this excursion independently of our cruise (Carnival Magic) and were a bit worried about timing, but Paul (our guide) was on top of everything and got us back in plenty of time. We disembarked much earlier than anticipated and got to the meeting point an hour early. A

    There were 3 of us on this private tour. Everything is about an hour drive away, so there was a lot of driving during the day. We were picked up at our hotel in Belize City, drove to the Cave, had lunch, then drove to Altun Ha before we returned to Belize City. Don't miss the
