The mainland tours can then be categorized as rainforest and mystic Maya adventures. Many of these exciting advendures often overlap and mesh with each other, providing some of the most memorable, delightful, and interesting tours ever experienced. Rainforest tours include the Belize Zoo (the only open-air zoo of its kind in the hemisphere), the Baboon Sanctuary, Rio Frio Caves, and Rio on Pools, just to name a few.

THE BELIZE ZOO
This remarkable zoo is located 29 miles west of Belize City; a convinient 45-minute bus ride from the Belize Tourist Village cruise port, thus rendering it accessible to stop-over visitors who wish to sample the splendor of the pristine Belizean wilderness – all without venturing too far from their ship.
There are over 175 species of mammals, birds, and reptiles living at the Belize Zoo.
MAYAN TEMPLE TOUR (ALTUN HA)
The Altun Ha Mayan Ruins is the most extensively excavated site in Belize. The core site includes thirteen structures clustered within two classic period plazas.
Altun Ha was an important trading and religious ceremonial center. Evolution of the temples at Altun Ha continued until about 1,000 A.D.
CAVE TUBING TOURS
Take a moment to picture spectacular crystal formations more than five million years old casting eerie shadows into a black abyss, as you explore and experience the most sacred area of the ancient Maya.
Truly, it’s a living museum, where the past can still be experienced in it’s historical and natural locale.
MAYAN TEMPLE TOUR (XUNANTUNICH)
The Xunantunich Mayan ruins are, in all honesty, a magnificent sight to behold. Some 80 miles on paved highway east of Belize City (among the northern foothills of the Maya Mountain Range), is one of the fabled kingdoms of the ancient Maya, called XUNANTUNICH (Shoo-nan-too-niche), meaning “Maiden of the Rock”.
