    A TALE OF TWO CITIES

    This fascinating half-day tour will focus on the contrast between the ancient Maya city of Altun Ha and modern day Belize City. Belize City today is home to about 35% of the country’s population and your guide will provide an interesting reflection of the city’s history. Note the colonial wooden architecture of many of the houses throughout your tour.

    Located 35 miles from Belize City on the Old Northern Highway, Altun Ha ("Rock Stone Water") thrived as a trading post to the Maya World during the Post Classic and Classic periods. It was here that Dr. Pendergrast uncovered what is considered to be perhaps the most precious of all Mayan artifacts and the largest piece of carved Jade in the Maya World -- the Jade Head representing Kinich Ahau, the Sun God.

    Altun Ha is easily accessible, and not a difficult walk. For those filling time before departing the country, a trip to this site is often made with a drop off at the International Airport.

    Pick up service is available at all Belize City hotels.

    TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Altun Ha
  • Drive Around City Tour


  • Duration: 4 HOURS

    BELIZE & THE BELIZE ZOO

    Belize City today remains the commercial capital of the country. In addition to other historic buildings, you will see the Supreme Court buildings, flanked by cannons used in the “Battle of St. George’s Caye” in 1798.

    Then drive 40 minutes up the Western Highway to Belize’s wonderful natural wildlife habitat, the Belize Zoo, which gives you the unique opportunity of viewing Belize’s prolific wildlife in one location. Only indigenous species are housed at the Zoo, all of which have been either rescued or donated from owners who could not take care of the animals properly. The "guests" are housed in large compounds containing what would be their natural habitat. Birds, cats, crocodiles, monkeys...The list seems endless! This is a great opportunity to view and photograph the inhabitants of the rainforest not easily seen in the wild.

    Pick up service is available at all Belize City hotels.

    TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Indigenous Species of Animals in Their Natural Habitat


  • Duration: 4 HOURS

    CAVE TUBING

    Belize boasts one of the most extensive cave systems in Central America, which the ancient Mayans utilized for shelter and ceremonial purposes. Here is an opportunity to experience this fascinating underworld in a unique and fun way.

    A transfer from Belize City on the Western Highway brings you to the Caves Branch River and its winding path through the Maya Mountains. On arrival at Jaguar Paw, be prepared for a 45-minute jungle trail hike. Your guide will point out various plants, roots, and herbs once used by the ancient Maya. The entrance tunnel that heads into the underground cave system is the start of an “eye opening” adventure. Your guide hands out flash lights, and you are ready to float in inflated inner tubes assisted by gentle currents taking you through the cave system. Intricate crystalline formations line the caves and stalagmites and stalactites add to the serene opulence of nature.

    Come dressed in bathing suits, T-shirts, shorts, tennis shoes or water shoes. A change of clothes, shoes and a towel is recommended. Dine on a freshly prepared local lunch of Rice and Beans and Stewed Chicken, a Belizean specialty.

    This is a great day out... The stuff after-dinner stories are made of!

    Pick up service is available at all Belize City hotels.
