Hello Patricia,
I'm an archaeologist who reside in belize. I offer tours to the Mayan site of Altun Ha or the Belize Zoo. If you are interested in more information contact me at markmcf@btl.net

Hi Mark. I've been to Chitinitza (spelling) when we were in Cancun and also Tulum. What can you tell me about these ruins? Also, what is the zoo like. We are trying to dive, but if that falls though, will be seeking other excusions. You came recommended through the chat line... and here you are! We have two young children who may be interested in the zoo. What would you do if you were going to Belize for the day? Thanks!

Pat,
We just returned from Belize and I would recommend the Altun Ha/Rio Wallace tour if you want to see some wildlife and ruins. Lots of nice comments from those that went on this tour. We did the Cave tubing and it was lots of fun and also interesting for those that want exercise and a little adventure while getting wet. Shopping is limited but the prices are very good right there where you reboard the tenders back to the ship.

Kym,
I've been to Cheat za neat za (sp) and Tulum too. What's cool about the site we saw in Belize was that they were still excavating it and we got to see workers doing that. Also it was kind of cool to see what the sites would have looked like when archeologists first saw it. At the same time, we saw monkeys in the trees, colorful birds and other wildlife.
We took a small boat up a river to the site and got to see crocodiles and birds there too. The guide we had through the boat was of Mayan ancestry and told some great stories too. Have fun,
Charley

Hey Mark, may want to take you up on tour to Mayan site. Arriving on Carnival Pride Tue, July 9. Could be that all 8 in our party would be interested. Tell me more and include possible rates. What about the tour up a river?? Thanks.

The combo tour of the ruins & Rio Wallace River trip were great. But be warned the 1 hr. 15 min. boat ride turned into a 2 1/2 hr. one as I "captain" kept turning around to look at every iquana anyone spotted. Enough was enough. We got back just in time to catch the last tender out to the ship. We didn't get to look around or shop there at the port which has some nice local things. My husband was very disappointed as he likes to get a hat at every place we go! Very hot even in April!!!

If you want to combine a river with wildlife, it's got to be the Lamanai river and ruins tour. From the stats I obtained at Belize's Tourism bureau, Lamanai is the second most popular tourist destination in Belize, after cave tubing. AltunHa Maya ruins are next on that list. We had some good responses about Belize from Major Tom's cave tubing at info@cave-tubing.net and then booked our tours online. Belize is an excellent English speaking destination.
