Belize is fortunate to have a rich ancient (& modern) Maya history.  The Detailed Itinerary/Buy Now Online links provide information on a Belize Vacation, that may interest you, that focuses on ancient Maya ruins in Belize, ancient & modern culture, and natural history (birding, tropical plants, nature, & wildlife excursions in Belize.)

We offer three different archaeology & natural history all-inclusive Belize tour packages each having an ecotourism focus. In addition, we also customize your Belize vacation and Belize tour to fit your schedule and interests.

Maya ruins and archaeological sites you may see on your Belize tour include:

Lamanai, Tikal, Guatemala, Caracol, Altun Ha and Cahal Pech. Our Belize tour packages also cover Cerros, Xunantunich, Nim Li Punit, & Lubaantun.

Your next Belize vacation will not only teach you about the chronological history by visiting the sites listed above, but also about their cultural history, their material culture (hands-on artifact workshop carried out at Lamanai), ancient Maya architectural features, and many other fascinating informative activities.

1 testimonial about this trip

  1. Reviewer: located in Albuquerque, NM USA
    "The Maya ruins are so interesting, my specialized focus was paid close attention to, I had maps, trails info, history of excavations and a lot of background information sent to me. I think the background of the owner, Laura, made a big difference with the amount I was able to get out of this trip. I felt like I was on a learning holiday, seems like those two don't fit together, to have fun and learn, I loved the sites, the areas, the guides, everything, great trip, truly."

    The community service component truly is rewarding, your trip exceeded our expectations, the accommodations were comfortable and the food in Indian Church Village was the best on the entire trip (who would have thought). Beyond Touring does a great job, every detail and very reasonable for what you get. We are boring our friends with all the details.
