Hi gang, Excursion #2 on our cruise aboard the NCL Getaway was to the Altun Ha Mayan ruins 30 mi from Belize City. Waters off the coast of Belieze are extremely shallow so cruise ships must anchor a coupla miles off shore and local tenders take you on a 20 min ride to the mainland. At the tourist village area...

We booked the tour on line. The prices were very reasonable and certainly beat what cruise line was offering. We arrived to Belize on Norwegian Cruise Escape. From the ship we took a tender which was a 20 min ride on the little boat. Once we arrived to the port we found the office and were on our way to... More

Was my first time booking with Island Marketing for my cruise visit to Belize. At first i was hesitant but i must say their service is excellent. Our tour guide met up with us Shameera i think it is and she was so pleasant. We even got a Belizean lunch and it was delicious.... She was personable and made us... More

A very good place to visit and well worth the effort to get there. Does require some physical exertion. The strps are lage and steep! You will ride through the jungle and some residential areas to get there. Enjoyed the history of the ruins. Wine vendors and souvenirs are available. Recommended activity.

If you're visiting Belize then this is definitely worth a visit. Maybe not as famous as the other myan sites but still worth making the effort to go to.

Exciting to visit the place where the jade head was found, especially since you see it everywhere in Belize (including the money). Grounds are well kept up, and it seems as though it gets further excavated each year by student archeologists. New visitor center is beautiful and educational.

We booked a private tour of the ruins of Altun Ha through Shore Fox. I have been on many shore excursions and the guide on this one,Keith was the best guide I have ever had. His knowledge of not only the ruins but of Belize was impressive. My 13 year old nephew is quite a history buff and Keith's knowledge... More

The archaeological site was so peaceful! The site is very well maintained. Beautiful to behold. Bring water though, it is hot! Bring cash too. Lots of souvenir vendors..plus you'll want to hit up one of the bars next to the parking lot to get a cold beverage.

These was our least favorite of the 3 Mayan sites we visited, but it is still impressive. The good is that it is impressive and convenient to Belize City. The bad is that the mosquitoes were terrible and the pond was boring. If you visit Belize by cruise ship go see it, but if you fly in for several days... More
