We did the Lamanai and New River ..takes you for the entire day to the ancient Mayan ruins of Lamanai(means-submerged crockadile) first by tour bus-1 hr. then in a speed boat(had twin 220hp engines)for 1hr. dropped off at the river site, lunch prepared by Mayan women, excellent lunch, plenty of cold water and sodas-in glass bottles- ruins-950 acre site, being reconstructed by Mayan craftsman..Small museum on site, and a few shops to buy souveniers..Excellent trip..We did this one June 2002 from the NCL Sun. *Very hot and humid in the jungle, and the howler monkeys scream as they swing from the upper tree branches..
Enjoy whatever you pick..

Thanks Dona. The boat, Paradise, offers a shoretour to Mayan site: Xunantunich. It is a seven hour tour with bus trip. I am so glad you warned me about the monkeys, I would have freaked..ha. This is our first cruise and we are really excited about it.

What ever tour you take at Belize, keep in mind that about 2 hours at least have to be allowed for traveling. Many also will include a local lunch stop. There is little to do on your own at the port but some limited shops in a nice seaside village. We leave on Friday and plan to do Cave Tubing with Reggie.
Bon Voyage

We did Shark Ray Allety in Belize. It is about a 455 minute speed, and I mean speed, boat ride to the site. AFter that you get to swim with rays and sand sharks. It is a real experience.
