Mayan Ruins Tours in Caribbean
Belize has a fascinating history and its Mayan heritage is one of the most intriguing parts. The intricate remains of many influential Mayan cities still exist and you can explore them on a range of Belize Mayan ruins tours.
Although Mexico is the most famous former-Mayan epicenter, Belize actually has the largest number of Mayan sites, with over 600 at last count. Spread across the country, and found deep in the jungle, next to rivers, or in hilltop locations, the largest of the Belize Mayan ruins are hugely atmospheric and really leave you feeling you’ve taken a step back in time.
Many Mayan ruins tours leave from Belize City, which is super convenient for cruise passengers who may be short on time. And with many tours offering a combination of activities - for example, this Altun Ha Mayan Ruins and River Wallace Tour - you can easily see the best of Belize on your excursion.
Maybe you’d enjoy the fun of a 26-mile boat cruise to get to the Mayan ruins at Lamanai. Or, perhaps you’d prefer to visit the largest Belizean Mayan city at Caracol. Whatever your preference, you’ll finish the day with a greater understanding of both Mayan and Belizean cultures - as well as some great photos!
