Overview
Discover a ruined Maya city and float through a series of flooded caves with a 6-hour private tour from Belize City to Altun Ha and the Caves Branch River. Explore broad plazas and towering pyramids as you visit the archeological site with your guide, and see the precious treasures excavated from the Temple of the Green Tomb. Hike through a lush forest to the Caves Branch River, then go tubing through soaring caverns as your headlight illuminates cave walls that glint with crystal formations and stalactites.
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.

Great time!

This was a great way to spend a day! Started off with a tour through the ruins with our guide, who was very friendly and knew his history about the area. The tour itself was shorter than I expected but the site was still amazing...More

Great fun!

We had an excellent experience. Paul, our guide, was very nice and knowledgeable. He took us to the cave tubing and ziplining first to avoid the cruise ship crowds. We changed into our swimsuits and water shoes (essential: you can rent water shoes), then walked...More

Amazing Experience!

Percy was our guide and he was fantastic. We got an early start and headed to do the cave tubing part of the day first, so we avoided a lot of the crowds. On the way, he pointed out many trees and parts of Belize....More
