Belize: Mayan Ruins and inland Blue Hole Tour

1. Belize: Mayan Ruins and inland Blue Hole Tour

The Xunantunich Mayan Ruins are some of the finest Maya Ruins in Belize. The drive from Hopkins to the Blue Hole and Xunantunich Mayan site in western Belize takes you through the scenic Hummingbird Highway and the western villages of Belize. This is a cultural experience, sightseeing tours with first hand views of the countryside, Mayan Mountains, farms, colorful homes and San Ignacio farmers market. Experience an authentic Belizean lunch in the immediate area of the ruins. Along the way back, we will make a stop at the cenote at Blue Hole National Park on the Hummingbird Highway, this is a great place to swim or just take pictures an enjoy the nature. The Blue Hole cenote was formed by the collapse of an underground limestone cave. In this case, the river running through the original cavern still flows through the cave system, and forms a sapphire-colored pool at the bottom of the sinkhole. The depression measures about 100 feet deep and 300 feet in diameter, with the actual blue hole at the depression’s base having a depth of about 25 feet.

What people are saying about San Ignacio, Belize

Holy heck! This was hands down one of the most fun, amazing, interesting, funky, enjoyable experiences of my life. I had no idea what we were getting into, I figured your basic here's a cave, don't touch anything, wooo let's turn off the lights, here's some scratches on the wall kind of tour. It was anything but. It was far more physical than I anticipated (in a good way), far longer than I expected (also in a good way) and truly ranks in the top 5 of things I've done in life so far. Wear REAL shoes, like sneakers, and REAL socks. Dress sparingly, just a tank top or tshirt and shorts is all you will want to deal with. (we went in mid December, still plenty HOT). Something quick dry is nice, but you won't really have a chance to dry off, and too much clothing might get chilly sticking to you. Bring a full on towel/change of clothes, change of shoes, fresh undies, fresh bra, and EAT A GOOD, HEARTY BREAKFAST before you go.

Best thing I did in Belize. No one should leave without doing this tour. It’s adventurous, fascinating, and just an all around unique experience. I don’t think there’s another tour like it in the world. Be prepared to get wet, have fun, see some cool shit and eat some amazing Belizean food at the end.

Don’t miss the ATM tour while in Belize. Rafael Guerra, Dr of Archaeology went in depth and shared the history, customs, what was thought to have occurred and importance of the site.

Loved climbing over rocks and swimming through the caves. The Mayan history is very interesting. Edward was a great guide, showing me the way at each stage, friendly and helpful.

This tour was amazing and definitely ranks up there for one of our favorite adventures. Rafael was a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommend going this tour if in Belize!
