Belize Top Destinations
Altun Ha & Wildlife River Rafting
Full Day Tour
Board your tour vehicle for 45 minute drive in route to the Maya Ruins of Altun Ha (Maya for "Rock Stone Water"), where the famous Jade Head of "Kinich Ahau" was uncovered by Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum. Altun Ha was once a major trading center linking the Maya on the Caribbean with the Central American mainland Maya.
After a local lunch, board a river raft for wildlife viewing. As you float downstream along the Olde Belize River, the guide will be pointing out the prolific bird life and flora & fauna. Eyes will be peeled searching for crocodiles along the riverbank, and howler monkeys in the trees above. Manatees and dolphins are also sometimes spotted. A rich experience. Once the logging and commercial highway of Belize, the river contrasts between small settlements and stretches where the feeling is one of remoteness, perhaps even discovery.
