Your cruise stop in Belize can include the old and the new on this fun combo of Altun Ha Mayan excursion and capital city scenic sightseeing.

You’ll meet your guide outside your Belize cruise tender terminal and start your day with a scenic sightseeing drive through Belize City. While learning of the history and culture of Belize you’ll pass interesting landmarks like the Baron Bliss Lighthouse. This white with red lighthouse was constructed in 1885 and named after one of Belize's favorite benefactors. St. John’s Cathedral is the primary Anglican cathedral of Belize and was built in the early 1800s from bricks used as ballast on ships. It’s the oldest church in the colony of British Honduras. See the Old Belize Swing Bridge that connects the north and south of the city over Haulover Creek and is the oldest manually operated swing bridge in Central America and one of the few left in the world. Drive past the Central Bank of Belize that houses and guards the second largest jade artifact found in Belize – a ceremonial pendant worn by a king. Pass through downtown with its good hotels, casinos and the Museum of Belize.

Then you are off to Altun Ha ruins! You’ll now head north on the old Northern Highway and then on the Old Northern Road to the Mayan ruins at Altun Ha. Located in the jungle and only about 15 of the over 500 mounds have been excavated. The others are still buried in the thick jungle. You'll have approximately 1.5 hours to explore the 2 large central plazas surrounded by medium-sized pyramids. The city was settled around 200 BC as a major trading and religious center. Much of the restoration was done by an archaeologist Dr. David Pendergast and some locals from 1967 to 1974.

In the Sun God Temple, they found the largest jade object to date, a carved jade head weighing 4.42 kgs.  It is also housed in the Central Bank of Belize. You can follow the paths of the Mayans as you walk through the site. Hike up above the ruins where you’ll have a birds-eye view of where the wealthy families lived and worked. From here you’ll have a panoramic view of the lush jungle and yet to be uncovered ancient structures. Your guide will also point out and explain how some of the plants of the rain forest were harvested and used for medicinal purposes. In 2014-2015 the site was renovated to better accommodate tourists with upgrades including a wheelchair accessible restroom and a visitor center.

After exploring the 2 plazas you’ll have a chance to purchase local hand made wood crafts. To complete your Belize experience, you’ll be treated to lunch from a local restaurant where you can try Belizean favorites of rice and beans cooked in coconut milk, chicken stew, fried plantains and coleslaw. Or a vegetarian option is available upon request.

Your comfortable transportation will return you to your Belize cruise tender terminal.

I would highly recommend this Belize tour. Nick and Nate were extremely knowledgeable and full of facts about Belize. They got us to the ruins before the big rush of cruise ship tours. We stopped for some wine tasting on the way and a yummy local lunch afterwards. Oh, and rum tasting!

Meeting our tour guide Jose was very easy, no problem with that. He parked close to the Belize sign so we were able to get those pictures before starting the tour. The first activity was driving to the caves to go tubing which did take a while, I think the tour says 40 mins and this was the shortest time in driving compared to all the other ruins etc that Belize had to offer. Jose talked both english and spanish which was perfect for my dad and I. Jose was very informative and we learned a lot about the country. Belize is really big and there is a lot to see just not in one trip. The most city area was by the cruise port and then the whole drive was mostly country. We had the caves all to ourselves so it was really nice, I thought it would be full of tourists but we were the only ones. I would suggest bringing a camera or phone that has flash, I only brought the go pro so I was not able to get good pictures inside the caves. After that we went to get lunch at a small restaurant. The food was very good but there was not a selection, it was a dish already set, of course you have the options to order other things but we did not want to spend a lot of time eating and had already paid for the food we had. We then drove to the ruins and it was mostly just us so it was also not very touristy which was great. There was also not a lot of walking to do which was nice. At the end we went to a souvenir store which was very good and the prices were cheap. Jose was a great tour guide and got along so well with my dad that they even exchanged numbers and my dad felt like they had been friends for a long time. This was my 2nd tour with this company and so far its been great!

Excursion employees were located directly outside the port terminal and walked us a short distance to a meeting point where we waited for all of the excursion participants. We waited for awhile to start the excursion because our group was missing two people. The company finally decided to leave them so our group was only 8 instead of 10 which made the van ride more comfortable. I think it would have been tight with two more people. Our guide “Vel” was friendly and informative. He made a stop at a local store so we could buy bug spray and bought the group bottled waters. Bug spray & water are a must for this excursion! The ride to the ruins was rather long and a little bumpy as we got closer. The tour at the ruins was great. Amazing views and very good photo opportunities. We stopped for lunch otw back at a local restaurant. The food was authentic and very tasty. I enjoyed this excursion and thought is was reasonably priced.
