Go tubing through a pair of jungle caves after you explore the ancient Mayan ruins of Altun Ha during this 6-hour combination tour that leaves from Belize City. Your guide will share information about the history and culture of the area as you wander through the park-like archaeological site checking out the temple pyramids. After lunch, cool off as you float through the cool limestone caves in Nohoch Che'en Archaeological Park and see the jungle flora and fauna unique to this part of the world.
The Belize Cave Tubing Altun Ha Combination Tour starts with a pickup at your hotel or cruise port in Belize City, bright and early at 7am. From there, you will first travel to the Mayan City of Altun Ha, a 50-minute drive (in an air-conditioned vehicle) from the old capital. Learn the history of the ancient archaeological site, theories on why they were there (and where they went) the importance of the city, and its relation to other cities in Meso-America.
After visiting Altun Ha, you'll ride in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle for an hour to the Nohoch Che'en Archaeological Park, the center for cave-tubing tours. After getting geared up, you'll trek through the rain forest while your guide shares information about the local fauna and flora, and reasons why the ancient Maya revered these caves they called 'Xibalba' — the entrance to the underworld. Launch your tube into the turquoise rivers and the cool, shady caves and enjoy the relaxing float before you are returned back to your accommodations in Belize City.
