    2 friends and I went on the zip lining and cave tubing adventure and it was so much fun! Both experiences were beautiful and all of the workers were so nice and friendly! Be sure to bring sneakers for the zip line and then water shoes for the tubing. My friend brought water shoes to wear on both acitivites and her feet were killing her afterwards because both activities require a bit of a hike. Also be sure to bring cash to tip the workers! we had 2 workers in the zip line, 1 server at the restaurant (meal is included in price and delicious) and the driver/tubing guide was the same person. Highly recommend!

  • From Belize City: Altun Ha and Belize Zoo Adventure

    9. From Belize City: Altun Ha and Belize Zoo Adventure

    The Belize Zoo is the perfect way to experience Belize’s untamed jungles and savannahs. The Tropical Education Center was started in 1983 to provide a home for wild animals featured in various documentaries. From the beginning, it was apparent that Belizeans were not familiar with the different species of wildlife that shared their country and great efforts were made to transform the little zoo into a dynamic wildlife education center. Today, the Belize Zoo covers approximately 29 acres of tropical savannah and features over 125 animals native to Belize. Many of these animals were injured when rescued and have been nursed back to health. Enjoy the awesome range of mammals, birds and reptiles in their natural habitat, including jaguars, howler monkeys, toucans, egrets, crocodiles, and tree frogs. You will spend approximately 1½ hours touring the zoo and educational center before returnin...

Really enjoyed the tour with Dennis. He was on time for the pickup. Shared information about the area on the drive and gave lits if interesting history about the site. It was a very hot day and he let me set the pace for exploring the area. Also was a solo trip to Belize. Other tour companies wanted me to pay double rate.

Abner picked us up, just as promised. He was an amazing tour guide both on the road & all through the jungle. He was fun, funny & just an absolute pleasure. He really made our trip special from beginning to end.

Fredd took me on the Altun Ha tour from Belize City. He was incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and made my day tour a memorable, educational, and fun experience. I would use this company again definitely.
