If you're like us, you love to have fun on vacation, but you also like to learn about the culture of the place you're visiting. On this great tour, we've combined two quintessential Belize activities - cave tubing and a visit to the Altun Ha ruins!

Explore 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 2000-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.

After exploring the area's history it becomes time to kick back and relax. Tubing has long been popular at artificial water parks, but this is a chance to try the real thing. And this tour features the newest and best cave-tubing equipment in Belize!

This series of caves is part of a national park located an hour outside of Belize City. As your guides open your eyes to Belize, your ride through the city and into the countryside will be as entertaining as the tubing itself!

Once you arrive at the park, you will spend approximately 30-45 minutes walking the trail to the first of two cave systems with your helmet and flashlight on your head.

Now for the easy part. Relax and just float through the linked cave systems, viewing the sights as you pass, in and out from pitch black to filtered sunlight. Pools of sapphire blue water carry you on this unbelievable journey downstream. After about an hour and a half of tubing, you will have reached the end of your amazing adventure.

When your tubing adventure commences, you will have a chance to purchase lunch. Here you can share your stories before reboarding your ride back to Belize City.

Ask anyone, ShoreTrips has the best guides in all of Belize!
