This tour will bring you to the top of a Maya temple, and then to the entrance of the Maya underworld. The temple is inside the Maya city of Xunantunich, which is located near the border of Guatemala. Its name translates to “Maiden of the Rock.” After you ascend the walls of its temple, you’ll continue the tour to the Cave Branch River, where you’ll follow the river into a series of caves that had intense spiritual significance for the Maya.
Snorkeling at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a sure-fire way to experience Belize’s diversity of marine life up-close. Animals at Hol Chan are used to getting fed by people on boats, so they’re relatively bold around snorkelers. This spot gets a lot of marine traffic, and every minute you spend underwater you’ll get to see something new.
In the Nohoch Che'en Archaeological Reserve, the winding Caves Branch River flows underground through ancient caves, once traveled through and even inhabited by the Maya.

This snorkeling tour brings you to an underwater formation called Mexico Rocks, which is part of the much larger Belize Barrier Reef. Your tour will begin with a cruise from San Pedro. This trip is worth the boat trip alone – on your journey you’ll get to see Ambergris Caye’s incredible landscape from the sea.
On this tour, you’ll get to see two very different Maya sites. The first, Xuanantinuch, is the ruins of a compact but impressive Maya city. Here visitors can stroll around multiple plazas and temples. At the nearby Barton Creek Cave, you’ll see a cave that served as an entrance to Xibalba, the Maya underworld.
Belize is a country of Maya history, diverse flora and fauna, and gorgeous rivers and streams. In the rainforest of the Orange Walk District, this tour combines these elements into one day’s adventure. The tour offers hotel pick up from Belize City, and even the two hour drive to the river is scenic and informative, with guides narrating the route.
Cave tubing and a visit to the Belize Zoo will bring you face-to-face with Belize’s incredible outdoors. First you’ll visit the Belize City Zoo, which is known for its rehabilitation programs for endangered animals. Then you’ll head to the Caves Branch River, where you will ride on an inner tube through the ancient caves of the Maya
The most exclusive tour to Caye Caulker begins at 7:00 AM; picking up from the dock of your resort. Enjoy ice cold juices and fresh tropical fruit as we speed over to the north cut at Caye Caulker, home to a thriving local population of Manatees. These beautiful animals are extremely shy and our early arrival allows you to snorkel privately long before the other tourist boats arrive. Next, you'll take to the sky and gently float 300 feet in the air over Manatees, Rays, Dolphins and other sea life. Then, it's off to the famous "Split" where we'll pull up beside the Lazy Lizard Bar & Grill. You'll have a couple hours to explore the island. Take a stroll around town or simply find a cool spot at the bar and enjoy a tropical drink or grab some lunch. We all meet back at the Lazy Lizard and climb back on board where ice cold beers, soft drinks and rum punch will be flowing for the duration of your trip back to the resort.
Actun Tunichil Muknal cave (usually referred to as “ATM”) is the doorway to Xibalba, the Maya underworld. This cave contains ceramics and human skeletons that have fused with the walls of the cave. The most famous of these remains is the Crystal Maiden, a skeleton of a young woman believed to have been a sacrifice. Her bones are now partially covered with the sparkling build-up of cave sediment.
