ShoreTrips says...

What makes one tour better than another is something we have studied. Belize, a wonderful destination, is more acclimated to tourists than most in Central America. Yet, we know that it is the personality of the guide that can make or break your experience, not just the activity.

For that reason, we have handpicked our choices personally and will cheer everytime we can introduce you to these great guys! Your day will begin immediately upon disembarkation and you will be entertained from beginning to end. Their graciousness will connect you to this lovely country.

Altun Ha, once a model Mayan city, was the link in the Caribbean trade route that ran north through the Yucatán. Its ruins were discovered by quarriers looking for stone to build the Old Northern Highway. Their discovery of 2,000-year-old specimens was just the beginning of the uncovering of the remnants of 13 structures surrounding two plazas, including one 60-foot temple now called the Temple of the Sun God.

This adventure is even more enticing once you realize that the location is fairly close to Belize City and situated in the rain forest for an added experience.

The ruins are breathtaking and easily walked. You'll get expert guidance as you move from one plaza to the other through a forest path. Those who prefer to wait can rest on a bench, rather than hazard the uneven surface. As some of the areas are easily accessible, you'll still be able to see a good share of the ruins before making yourself comfortable.

Along with this experience, add a tour of Belize City, the life pulse of Belize. Belize City is teeming with commerce and has adapted its two sides of the river with a connection by the Swing Bridge. You'll see the bustle, along with historic Fort George, a variety of embassies, consulate homes, and an area called the Beverly Hills of Belize. Your visit to the Baron Bliss Lighthouse will be accompanied by its story. This and other landmarks from the colonial period will take you back almost 200 years.

Belize City, the largest city in this small country, has much to offer and will surprise you in many ways.
