Altun Ha, Cave Tubing, and Baboon Sanctuary
This combo tour will depart from Belize City in air conditioned comfort towards the “Old Northern Road” for 50 minutes. Belize City's nearest Maya temple is frequented by Belizean schoolchildren because it is the nearest Maya temple to the city. This beautiful Maya Temple, whose name means “Rockstone Water,” has wide-open spaces.
After visiting an ancient Maya site, you'll drive for 90 minutes to Cave Tubing. You'll receive a basic orientation and safety briefing at the outpost before setting out on a 30-minute hike that involves wading through knee-deep water streams.
The hike is mostly on flat terrain, so don't be concerned; it's both enjoyable and informative. The rainforest canopy shades it, and our tour guides will point out flora and fauna noteworthy to the area.
Once at the entrance of the cave system, it’s time for your Belize cave tubing adventure through the ancient Maya underworld. Its spectacular crystalline formations line the cave with a majestic rise and fall of stalagmites and stalactites that add to the serene richness and grandiose of Xibalba.
We provide cave tubing tours that include a mini waterfall and swimming area, if you're looking for a challenge. Following the falls, you drift downstream with the gentle current, passing wildlife and birds, before returning to the point where you started.
After boarding your transport, it’s then on to the tiny village of Bermudian Landing to visit The Community Baboon Sanctuary. In 1985, the Black Howler Monkey Sanctuary was established to emphasize to farmers the importance of conserving the monkey’s habitat. Your guide will show you the monkeys up close as they scamper across rope suspension bridges throughout the village. You won’t miss the howl of this small monkey that sounds like it’s coming from
