Altun Ha and Belize Cave Tubing Shore Excursion: An hour northward out of Belize City, your disembarkation point, along quaint country roads, secondary rainforest, Creole villages and isolated farms, rises the majestic beauty of the Maya ceremonial center called Altun Ha (rock stone water). Royal priests ruled this site for many centuries, and traded with other Mayan centers in Meso America. Some 45+ years ago, Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada, along with his excavation team, discovered a tomb of a priest in the Temple of the Masonry Altars, and in it, a nine and three quarter pound jade carving of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau – a world famous event! Climb prepared stone steps to the stars! Surround yourself with the aura of these ancient stargazers living in the rainforests of Belize.
After your tour of Altun Ha, we head to Nohoch Che’en Archaeological park where your cave tubing adventure awaits. On arrival you change in the bathroom and head to our staging area where you gear up. Life vests, helmets, headlamps and flotation tubes. Just a short 35 minute hike to the top of the caves and your tour begins. After your tour of the caves you enjoy a delicious Belizean lunch after which you move back to Belize City, old British colonial capital of Belize for your return to port where you were first picked up.
