Anyone been on or know about this RCI shore excursion? Saw these ruins on Youtube and frankly they look far more interesting and larger than Altan Ha, but it seems I see more chat on Altan Ha, and Fodor's doesn't even mention Xunantunich in their cruise guide.
Also, what is the "marimba lunch" like?

We went on this excursion in September and loved it. One of the best I have ever been on. The ruins are indeed spectacular, but I have never been to Altun Ha to compare. I have seen several Mayan ruins and these are comparable to any, superior to most.

The marimba lunch is a delightful stop at a restaurant out in the mountain country of Belize. Our guides teased us about getting iguana, but it was a great chicken dish. We would love to visit again.

I've been to both and each has something to offer...Xunantunich is more spectacular but Altun Ha is a special place too....Chichen Itza was my favorite of all the Myan Ruins I've been..Tulume is also a very nice trip...Just enjoy them and have a Happy Cruise...

Thank you both so much! I'm looking forward to a great experience. My daughter is a history buff and she is so excited about this opportunity! Happy cruising!
