This is a great tour to take. When you get off at the cruise port of call its only a 30 min drive. Get a tour guide in the port village. Fun trip and good exercise.

Took a private tour out to the ruins from the Belize City Tourism Village cruise port. The ride was comfortable, with some bumps on the entrance. Fascinating location with pyramids we could climb!
