Altun Ha – Belize Cave Tubing

Altun Ha Belize Cave Tubing

Altun Ha Sun God Temple

Altun Ha Belize Cave Tubing Tour: 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 pond). Royal priests ruled Altun Ha 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 rain-forests of Belize. After a delicious Belizean lunch, and your time travel experience of the Maya Civilization, move to Nohoch Che’en Archaeological Reserve for your Cave Tubing Adventure.

Altun Ha Belize Cave Tubing Tour: An hour’s easy drive west from Belize City brings us to the Sibun Caves Branch cave tubing site – with modern bathrooms, secure parking, excellent jungle restaurant, and handicraft shops. After changing, grab your tube, life vest and caving light, and walk a leisurely jungle trail through two dry cave systems and under beautiful primary broad-leaf rain-forest to the entrance of the cave system and the most popular tour in Belize – cool and comfortable floating through gorgeous stalactite and stalagmite filled caverns where the ancient Maya people once practiced the important rite of traveling through the underworld, ruled by the nine dark lords of their cosmological religion. Your guides will take you safely through the system, and then, at the end of the caves, enjoy a beautiful outdoor float under the canopy of the rain-forest, with some sunshine coming down through the canopy. At the end (this is actually a circuit – you float back to where you started hiking!), enjoy a fabulous local lunch, and then back to your original start point.

Trip Advisor Review

“One of the only groups to combine the Altun-Ha & Belize Cave Tubing excursions!” 5 of 5 STARS Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Wonderful tour guide (Jeff) who was informative and obviously beloved by his community (everywhere we stopped, folks were happy to see him.) We did not have to carry our tubes (strongman Jeff had them!), we were the FIRST into the caves so it was totally private, and we were the LAST to go to Altun-Ha, which means there were no crowds at all!!! Also, there were puppies and pretty cranes at the ruin, which is totally random, but we got some great pictures. One of the best excursions we have ever taken. Thank you, Jeff! Tamale lunch was delicious! This is definitely for people who are in okay shape and know how to hustle (not for people who want to browse and shop all day.) The faster you move, the move you see. Hot tip: If you want to buy something, ask Jeff to tell you what a fair price is instead of negotiating. I paid a little extra for Cashew Wine because I didn't think to ask him. It's really good though - bring some home, Belize is the only place you can get it, and they sell it at Altun-Ha. Visited December 2016
