See the fascinating Altun Ha Mayan Ruins and enjoy a fun guided Jeep cruise excursion that takes you through the Belize tropical jungle! Exciting driving, nature sightseeing, and a complimentary lunch are included!

Your friendly, English-speaking Belize Jeep Adventure and Altun Ha Mayan Ruins Excursion guide will be waiting for you at your cruise ship tender terminal in Belize City. You will get checked in and helped into the air-conditioned 14-passenger van for the ride to the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha. Enjoy the scenery as you pass through the famous Belize City and into the countryside and jungle / tropical forest of Central America! The ride to the ruins is approximately 45-60 minutes from your cruise tender terminal.

Rising out of the lush Belize rainforest is the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha. Once a Belize Maya ceremonial center, Altun Ha (rock stone pond) was home to more than 500 structures. It was also an important Mayan trade center. It was accidentally discovered in 1963 by a pilot and amateur archeologist flying over the site that was almost hidden by the jungle growth.

The most famous discoveries at Altun Ha Mayan Ruins were made by Dr. David Pendergast who, along with his excavation team, discovered a tomb of a priest in the Temple of the Masonry Altars. Inside the tomb was a jade head carving of the Mayan Sun God, Kinich Ahau weighing almost 10 pounds.

To date, guests are able to climb the main temple ruins and get an incredible view of the rainforest surrounding the ruins.

When you have completed your guided cruise excursion of Altun Ha Mayan Ruins and its ancient past, your shore excursion guide and van transportation will take you to the Jeep base camp. The Jeep excursion guides go over all of the driving instructions and safety information. Although the Jeeps are a stick-shift drive, there is a space on your order form to indicate if you require one of the 2 automatic Jeeps available (first come first serve, early booking recommended). The Jeeps are 4-person shared vehicles that can accommodate up to 4 adults with a smaller child.

Hop in, buckle up, and get ready to follow your English-speaking Belize jeep excursion guide in the lead Jeep on a fun drive through the jungle. See hidden treasures of nature. Enjoy driving through varied terrain from dirt roads, wetlands, and muddy jungle trails. Be prepared to get dusty, muddy, and dirty! Keep a lookout for native birds and other jungle flora and fauna.

There will be a couple of photo stops along the way. You will also hike a short distance to view the hidden caves tucked away in the Belize jungle rainforest! Guests may enter the open and unique Mayan cave and walk around inside to enjoy the beauty created by nature and the ancient Mayans including crystalline rock formations and artifacts.

After your Belize Jungle Jeep and Altun Ha Mayan Ruins Excursion, you will be offered a complimentary traditional Belizean-style lunch with chicken, rice, beans, and potato salad along with bottled water and soft drinks. Great organic food, and fresh and authentic local cuisine! There is only one choice of lunch, but there is a cash bar to purchase other beverages along with a great gift and a Belize souvenir shop to browse all on the same property. The approximate time at the Jeep excursion base is 2 hours. With time allowing, guests may take a dip in the refreshing river on the property.

When time is up, transportation will take you back to your Belize cruise ship tender terminal approximately 25 minutes away.

For those wanting a Jeep just to themselves, there is the VIP option - the empty spaces must be purchased at an adult rate (the private Jeep option requires booking 4 adults per Jeep, please indicate the private option in the message box provided in the booking process).

A BELIZEAN MUST!!

Hands down this is the best excursion that I have ever been on in my 11 years of cruising! I typically always book my excursions through Carnival. However, for our Spring Break Family 2023 Cruise, I honestly waited too late and all of the highly rated Mahogany Bay excursions through Carnival were booked! I knew I wanted an amazing experience for My Husband, 8 year old son and I inclusive of a Mayan ruin tour, sightseeing of some sort and some Belizean fun. I was very nervous but decided to book this excursion outside of Carnival as I had no other option (refused to just sit on the ship at Port). This experience exceeded my expectations! Our tour guide Gabriel was AMAZING!!!! So knowledgeable, kind and thoughtful! This excursion led by Gabriel allowed us to engrain ourselves into Belizean culture, history and customs and engage first hand in the historical significance and richness that the county provides. My 8 year old son had his most favorite day in the universe as a result of the experience gained from this excursion. It’s breathtakingly the best experience you will ever have!! I would highly recommend this!!!!

If you really want to have an amazing experience in Belize - pick this one! We learned so much about Belize on the drive to the ruins. We visited the ruins, taking our time exploring as we saw other groups rushing through. We got into the jeeps and we were off into the jungle. (Make sure you pack bug spray!) Our tour guide shared so much about the country and the people - it was so personable and so much fun. The meal at the end was delicious- and we were back to the boat with plenty of time to spare!!! It was my favorite excursion of the week!!! I had reservations going outside of Carnival - but it was TOTALLY worth it!!!!

We were in Belize on February 21st, 2019, on the Carnival Vista. We wanted something more exciting than what Carnival offered. WE FOUND IT! Our tour guide, Gabriel, was fantastic! Friendly, knowledgeable, gracious, and stayed with us the entire time. About midway through our day, we figured out that this was his family's business. At the end of the day, we were served an amazing, authentic, Belizian lunch, by his mother and grandmother. We can not recommend this excursion enough! It was an amazing experience, and helped create lifelong family memories.

My husband and I are adventurous people and we wanted to do something more in Belize than just the usual excursions. We came across this Jeep excursion and we booked it! I knew my husband would enjoy the jungle and the jeeps while I got to hear about the Mayan history! Our guide, Gabriel, did an awesome job! He was very knowledgeable! We started out on a short drive to the ruins. Very awesome. Got to climb up the tallest ruin they have. Took awesome pictures and some of the locals had merchandise for you to purchase. We left there and headed towards the jeeps. We picked a manual shift Jeep and head out for the jungle. We followed Gabriel to the location. It was wet and muddy! We like this kinda stuff! We spent some time trucking through the mud and ended up at a cave. We entered the cave with Gabriel and saw bats inside! We left there and went back to the jeeps. We then stopped at a pavilion where lunch was waiting for us. It was chicken, rice and beans, and potato salad. Very delicious. We drank our orange Fanta and headed back to the ship. Gabriel dropped us off in time to get back to our ship with time to spare. If you like doing adventurous things, then I highly recommend this excursion!

We have visitied Belize 5 times already for snorkeling so on our 6th visit we decided to do something completely different since we realized we have no idea about the culture or history. Pretty embarrasing but we just love to snorkel and relax at the beach! After looking at the different excursions on the Shore Excursioneer website we decided to go for the Altun Ha and Jeep excursion. We have never ever visited any ruins sites so it was really impressive to hear about the Mayans that built them and the ceremonies and just so much history! Our guide Jose did a great job keeping us engaged and describing everything. The site is small, maintained and there are handmade goods for sale so make sure to support the local! After that we went for the jeep portion of the tour. We were wowed by the beauty of the jungle and we admired the views and the tranquility. At the end for lunch and it was really god too! So different flavors, homemade. After this experience I know we will definitely do other activities while in Belize.
