The Altun Ha Mayan Ruins are located in northern Belize, about 30 miles from the Belize city of Chetumal. The site was first settled around 250 AD and reached its peak between 600 and 900 AD. The ruins cover an area of about 10 square miles and include several temples, plazas, and residential buildings. Archaeologists believe the site was inhabited by as many as 20,000 people at its peak. Today, the ruins are a popular tourist destination and offer visitors a glimpse into the lives of the ancient Maya.
Jaguar Paw cave tubing is an ecotourism activity in which tourists float down a river through a system of caves. It is located in the Belizean rainforest and is one of the country's most popular tourist attractions. The cave system comprises several large chambers connected by narrow passages, and the journey takes about two hours.
Once at the entrance of the cave system, the space is created., 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.
