This is a relaxing day exploring the jungle! You get the history, water and air elements on this tour. Traverse the jungle via zip line along the canopy of the rainforest, see the majestic ceremonial Maya temples and float through the Maya underworld.
Altun Ha translates to “rockstone pond”. The site dates back to 200 B.C. and covers an area of 44 acres. This city was a very wealthy ceremonial center and this is evidenced by excavation of the green tomb and the internationally famous jade head.
“No’hoch Che’en” national park is where we will be tubing through the caves that are considered the underworld to the Maya. Here you will be fitted with a helmet, a headlight, life jacket, and appropriate flotation tube. It is a 30 – 45 minute hike to the entrance of the caves. Once we reach the entrance you will board your floating tubes and be navigated through the underworld by one of our experienced guides.
In the caves you will see eagles, turtles, mammoths, sharks, jellyfish, Indiana Jones and even Darth Vador. Once we exit the caves you will continue down the lazy river for another 15 minutes right back to the starting point of the tour.
Once we are back to the land of the living you will enjoy a delicious meal before we take the ride back to your drop off point. Along the way we will share experiences, highlights, a local rum cocktail or just take advantage of the free time to take a siesta. Most guests prefer the siesta.
This will truly be one of the most UnBelizeable days of your life!!
