    Ruins

    by PrincessK Written Dec 12, 2004

    Xunantunich (Stone Maiden) is the archaeological pride of Belize, although you might find it anticlimatic if you've seen Tikal or Copᮮ Set on a levelled hilltop near the Belize River close to the Guatemalan border, Xunantunich controlled the riverside track which led from the hinterlands down to the Caribbean coast. The site flourished as a ceremonial center and is thought to have been abandoned after an earthquake damaged it around AD 900. The site has not been extensively restored, though its tallest building - El Castillo - rises an impressive 40m (131ft) out of the jungle.

    Safe Tour Guide for Cave Tubing

    by ATXtraveler Written Dec 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the things that I definitely enjoy from most bulletin board sites and also virtual tourist is recommendations for good guides and or services for us as global travellers.

    I want to showcase our guide, Richard of X-Stream cave tubing. He was excellent with a rich knowledge of history and also a great personality.

    I have also included a picture, so if you do book a tour with him, you will be able to pick him out of the other tour guides waiting for you.

    Richard, Belize tour guide.

    Cave Tubing

    by ATXtraveler Written Dec 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the best choices you can make when you are in Belize City is to spend the day Cave Tubing. Although the caves are not actually in Belize City, I have put this tip here because the most convienent way to do this is through a Belize City based tour company. The tour guides are professional, provide security, and most importantly safety in the caves. The one we chose was X-Stream Cave tubing, and we had a great adventure for $60 USD.

    I would highly recommend this as a fun day activity. Meet up with Richard at the Port of Belize City Monday through Friday around 8am!

    Mayan Ruins

    by JonnyB82 Written Nov 30, 2004

    The Altun Ha Mayan Ruins, accessible via companies in Belize City, is an absolutely fantastic opportunity if you are down there. An interesting contrast to ruins outside Cozumel or Costa Maya, Mexico. Large structures, which you can typically walk on most of, wheelchair accessible (for those whom this is important to), and not a far drive at all. But let someone take you there, drivers in Belize, i found, are, well.. reckless at best, or you could consider it precision driving, but, Í'd leave precision driving to the professionals myself.

  • What can I say? as I have...

    by daBertl Updated Oct 4, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What can I say? as I have already mentioned earlier, the city is not very safe so I did not dare hanging out too much even I am usually not scared of nothing. A lot of creepy creatures are hanging out there and you don't know whether they are just friendly rasta dudes or whether they are some creeps trying to get your bucks. What I did is, I had a very nice walk through the entire town on sunday morning. First of all it was not so hot in the early hours and secondly, all the weirdos were still sleeping and made me feel quite safe. You can walk to the St. George Lighthouse, which if you are a beer drinker will follow you all over Belize as it is the brand symbol of Belize's second best beer - Lighthouse.

    Museum of Belize

    Built in the former Colonial era prison, this small but excellent museum is the top sight in Belize City. It features the history of Belize from Mayan time to independence from Britain.

    Can you see the light?

    by kschatterbox Written Apr 15, 2007

    This is their lighthouse. I couldnt really get our tour guide to talk about it. All he said was that a rich guy came to town and gave them the money for it, so they had it built.

    Take A Historic Tour

    by amybrooke Written Oct 30, 2005

    This church is made from bricks, which were brought over from England. I believe the tour guide said its the oldest church in Central America.

    Stroll around the Pier

    by realde14 Written Apr 13, 2004

    Belize City is a bit scary to walk around at night, but there are some interesting buildings to see, especially the US and Mexican embassies close to the Fort George Pier
