Hold on to your hat as you enjoy an exhilarating boat ride along Belize City's scenic coastline.
Turn inland on the Belize River, named the Rio Wallace by the Spaniards when the Conquistadores had an iron grip on the New World. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready as crocodiles, iguanas, howler monkeys and even a feeding manatee or dolphin are just some of the wildlife that you might see.
After approximately 1½ hours on the river, enjoy a 30- to 45-minute pit-stop at a riverside dock. Feel free to browse in the gift shop or purchase a delicious local lunch (at your own expense).
Board a motor coach for the second part of your adventure and head to Altun Ha. This is the Mayan ceremonial center where the famous jade head of the sun god, Kinich Ahau, was found during an expedition led by Professor David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum. The site, which is set in pristine rain forest, has three plazas and thirteen structures within its perimeter, and was a vital trade center during the Classic Period (AD 250-900). Stone steps allow visitors to climb the main temples (weather permitting).
Sit back and relax, or ask your guides any remaining questions on the 45-minute ride back to the pier, where your adventure comes to an end.
Minimum age is 4 years. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
