The offshore reef is Belize’s most famous attraction, but there’s so much to enjoy on the mainland as well!

This pristine landscape is ideal for activities like horseback riding or hiking through a national park, exploring the mysterious cities left behind by the ancient Maya (including Tikal), relaxing on a boat tour up the Monkey River (and yes, you’ll definitely see some monkeys), zip lining in the spectacular Jaguar Paw region, cave tubing (floating down underground rivers), plumbing the depths of Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave, and rappelling into the spooky Black Hole Drop.

There are plenty of educational tours available from Untame as well. Visitors can enjoy a chocolate tour (with plenty of hands-on tasting!), visit the Maya Museum, or take a cultural tour to learn more about the Maya or the Garifuna people. The Maya are the living descendants of the people who built the pyramids and palaces found across Belize, and the Garifuna are an Afro-Caribbean people who have been honored by the United Nations for their unique food, dance, drumming, and music.

If you’re interested in participating in one of these tours or need private ground transfers or shuttle service to and from any location in the country, you can rely on Untame Belize, one of the top tour companies in southern Belize. Untame Belize can also customize their guided tours to meet your individual needs.
