This trip starts with a short boat cruise around the island to Belize’s Northern River, which inhabits orchids, birds, and crocodiles. Your first stop is at Bomba Village, where you can shop for beautiful hand-made woodcarvings, and it is also where you will then board a bus, which will take you to the Mayan pyramids of Altun Ha.
Altun Ha was the first Mayan site to be discovered in Belize, and on this tour, you will get to see first hand the gorgeous landscaping, genius ancient architecture, and Belize’s famous and ornately carved Jade Head of Kinich Ahau, the Mayan Sun God.
Climb the steps of the largest of Altun Ha’s temple-pyramids, the “Temple of the Masonry Altars”, which is 54 feet (16 m) high and is preserved on the logo of Belikin, Belize’s leading brand of beer.
After the tour, you will travel to the Maruba Jungle Spa, where you will enjoy the peaceful setting, relaxing pool, and excellent food. For those who want to spoil themselves, enjoy a mud massage or other spa treatment. Maruba Jungle Spa is a blend of various Mayan, Creole, and African influences with a refreshing jungle setting. Maruba’s Jungle Falls swimming pool will cool you in the day and the Japanese tub will make an unforgettable experience.
