Can anyone suggest a tour on the mainland which can be done in a day to visit some pyramids? We are staying on the Island but want to spend 1 day visiting some of the pyramids if that can be done in a day trip. Thanks! -BillH

I believe they are called Mayan RUINS, but whatever? The closest are probably Altun Ha I think about 15-17 miles from Belize City... Lan is the real expert on that...ARE YOU OUT THERE LAN??

Lamanai ruins with Tanishi tours was the highlight of my trip. A long 10-12 hour day but completely worth it--<$100 US, not counting some very nice opportunities for hand-made crafts. Bring cash if you want to buy. Seaduced also goes and I heard v. good things about them. No modern facilities[read toilets], I think my wife was glad she didn't go.

I forgot--they will pick you up on your dock, or at Texaco dock, and leave from AC.

Tanisha is the only way to go in my book

Hey Bill Great name you have there.. My father was Bill and that is also my son's name.

Tropic Air also offers (or at least they did) either a one day trip OR an overnite trip to Tikal (Guatemala). Tikal is wonderful!! I have been there twice already and want to go again. Last time I was there, we actually stayed at the resort right beside the park. It was fabulous, especially hearing the jungle sounds at nite including the howler monkeys.

I have also been on the Altun Ha trip from AC and although the scale is much smaller, it is a great adventure, travelling up the river and along the 'roads' to the site. We stopped at the Maruba Spa / Resort for lunch too. They were all out of the Royal Rat on the lunch menu but we did have the opportunity to taste :p the Viper Rum! Have you been to Chichen Itza in Mexico? Fabulous... So much history at any of the sites.

Four more days and I will be back in Belize for another visit..

Be careful.. Belize and the Mayan Ruins are addictive.. cool

Cheers Gail
