Cruise to Belize City

Starfish IslandStarfish Island Starfish Island (old name Bannister Island) is a small private island situated 9 miles south east of Belize city. You'll find a lovely white sand beach, with a good range of facilities, including restaurant, bar, restrooms, and beach hire.
Lamanai Mayan Ruins The Lamanai Mayan Ruins form the third largest, but perhaps most interesting, archaeological site in Belize. The temple complex sits atop the western bluff of the New River Lagoon and is surrounded by pristine rain-forest.Lamanai Mayan Ruins Climb atop the largest temple (very steep steps!) for wonderful views of the surrounding hills and jungle. The ruins are a long 2 hour coach/boat ride away from the Tourism Village.
Caves Branch After reaching the Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve you'll walk for 30 minutes through the Belize Rain Forest and then through a couple dry caves until you come to the opening of the first cave through which the underground Sibun Caves river flows. Jump into your tube and prepare yourself for some very exciting cave tubing - but not for the frail (one passenger once died!). Caves Branch is about 60 miles south west from Belize city.
Hol Chan Marine Reserve The Hol Chan Marine Reserve (Hol Chan is Mayan for Little Channel) is situated between Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye on Belize's famous barrier reef.Hol Chan Marine Reserve The Reserve has a host of amazing reef life, with large shoals of jacks, barracuda, groupers, and snappers. Be sure to pick an excursion that includes the short plane flight from Belize to Ambergris Caye, as this is by far the quickest way to reach the Reserve.
