Overview

Altun Ha and Cave Tubing

 

Tour of Belize Caves and Altun Ha Ruins

From Belize City, we drive efficiently an hour west to the Sibun Caves Branch cave tubing site. There is a jungle restaurant with handicraft shops and modern bathrooms. Grab a tube, a life vest, and a flashlight after changing. To reach the cave system, you must walk through two dry cave systems through lush rainforest. Floating through stalactite and stalagmite-filled caverns, where the ancient Maya people once practiced the important rite of traveling through the underworld, is a popular tour in Belize—governed by nine dark lords, according to their cosmology.

As you emerge from the caves, you will enjoy a lovely outdoor float beneath the canopy of the rainforest, with rays of sunlight peeking through. After completing the circuit (the float takes you back to where you started! ),

Altun Ha

From Nohoch Che’en Archaeological Park, we travel to Altun Ha after your amazing cave tubing adventure, Where we change into our dry clothes and continue our journey. The guide will pay the entrance fees so that you will access the bathroom facilities. From there, you will begin your tour. Climb temple B4, also known as the Sun God Temple or the Temple of the Masonry Altars. Your guide will be able to tell you why those last two names were disproved!

Then head to Nohoch Che'en Reserve, where you'll grab a tube and headlamp and float through Belize's most extensive river cave system. Cross the river in knee-deep water using short wade. When you reach the other side, you can enjoy a guided nature walk through a jungle as well as a dry cave on your way back to the starting point. After that, relax into your tubes as you listen to the safety briefing. Use only your headlamp to guide you through the cave system! It winds through several cave systems before finishing with an open stretch next to a jungle-lined river. In the end, you'll find yourself back where you started.
