lize Cruise Terminal – Belize Cruise Ship Terminal: Tourism is one of the major industries in Belize and government statistics say one in four Belizeans work in this sectors. In 2004, over 800,000 tourists visited Belize; projections for 2005 exceed 1,000,000. Carnival Cruise Lines signed an agreement in July 2005 with Belize Ports Ltd. for the construction of a US $50 million cruise terminal next to the Port of Belize Ltd. This project serves as a catalyst for the development of the new Commercial Free Zone and the new Export Processing Zone to be built next to the Cruise Terminal between 2005-2007.
Belize Cruise Ship Terminal - Pick Up:
We ask that you try to get off your ship as you can. It you can board the first tender that would be great! When get off your tender please got to Terminal #1 and exit from the glass door. As you exit you will see us holding a sign that reads your name.
Belize Cruise Ship Terminal – Security:
Cruise excursions leaders are ask to please bring a long a copy of your tour confirmation on the day of tours. From time to security at the Belize Cruise Ship Terminal would ask you to produce a copy of your tour confirmation.
Belize Cruise Terminal - Tricks:
There is a trick the security offers are playing at the Belize Cruise Port Terminal. When security ask you to produce your tour confirmation and you don’t produce it they will ask you to go to the next door. The security officer at the next doo will ask you to produce a copy of your tour confirmation again. If you don’t produce it they will send you to the next door again. This will go on and on. This is done prevent you from meeting with the tour companies you book with so you may decide to book your cruise excursions with the tour guides that are inside the Cruise Terminal. It’s a shame that this is done, but you will have to demand to exit the Cruise Terminal otherwise you will be pushed around by the security officers.
Tour Companies In The Belize Cruise Terminal:
From time to time tour companies and tour guide inside the cruise terminal when asked about a tour companies you are booked with would say that tour company doesn’t exist. They would also mention that the tour companies you booked with have left on tour. Remember that you book private tours with a tour company for Belize Cruise Port please bring along a cell number so you may be able to contact the tour company you booked with.

Re: Belize Cruise Terminal
This is very true. When we cruised to Belize last week, we had booked cave tubing and zip line with Donald Ramirez and we were told he was not at the cruise terminal. That was not true. Donald Ramirez was just outside with a sign that reads my name. The cave tubing and zip line was a fun tour. Would do again if I get the chance. I recommend Donald Ramirez to all. Google "Donald Ramirez Belize" to locate Donald. The is a great tour guide and he offers strictly personalize excursions. You will not regret it.
We did cave tubing and zip line with Donald Ramirez as well and it was a blast. We didn't have a hard time to meet him. He instructed us to be on one of the early tenders, and we did that. He was at the exit of Terminal waiting for too. Love the zip line. The caves were refreshing. Lunch was very tasty. Best Rice I've ever had. Recommend Donald Ramirez. His website is: http://www.actionboysbelize.com
Donald was an excellent host. We visited Xunantunich and he was very knowledgable about the area, the history and was very personable. Cave tubing was amazing - beautiful, peaceful, and our guide Alex was great as well. I would definitely recommend using this company. My husband and I spent two days with Action Boys (also visited the Baboon Sanctuary) and enjoyed our time very much. Thank you for welcoming us with such hospitality and warmth.

Re: Belize Cruise Forums
overall experience with Action Boys Belize was amazing! Our tour guide, Donald, was amazing he gave us a breakdown of the history of Belize city while we traveled to the Zip lining site. The zip lining tour was a lot of fun, definitely worth it, just try to get out there early so that you can avoid larger groups. We got done with the zip lining quick because Donald made sure we were the first group. We did not plan on doing anything else that day, but since we got done early we decided to go cave tubing as well. Donald had no problem with that and took us right over there. Cave tubing was a good change of pace, and was relaxing. Once we were done with that we decided we wanted to try to get some local food near the port. Donald hung around and made sure we got a fair price and didn't get ripped off. He even negotiated prices down for us to get a better deal on some things. Again overall experience with Action Boys Belize was amazing, they do a great job and go above the call of duty.

Re: Belize Cruise Port
Action Boys is a great company to book through. We did not get off the ship until 11am because of issues tendering. Our guide waited on our group of 6 until we got their which was great. Our guide was extremely nice and informative. The ride was about an hour and our zip line guides were great also. It was my first time zip lining and they made me feel very comfortable The zip line guides were nice, entertaining, and informative. If we go back to Belize we will book with action boys again
My family did zip line canopy tour with this company and it was awesome. We got a group discount of $55.00 since it was 14 of us and I went free as the group leader. Action Boys Belize was the way to go... Oh I almost forgot to mention that my 3 year old daughter was allowed to participate in the zip line tour.
When you cruised the Western Caribbean with a stop in Belize City we used this company for our zip line canopy tour. It was a blast. Donald was our driver. He took us to the zip line and explained the history of Belize to us. The kids had a great time too. I recommend this company for a great time they showed my family and friends.

Re: Belize Cruise Forums - Belize Zip Line, Cave Tubing, and Altun Ha Ruins
Belize Cave Tubing, Zip Line, and Altun Ha Ruins - Cruised to Belize on the N.C.L. Sun with my family and friends. We had a fine time at all ports, but Belize was exceptional. We did cave tubing, zip line, and altun ha ruins with actionboysbelize.com. Donald Ramirez was one of our tour guides. He picked us up at the Light House and off we went. He told us about the history as we drove to the cave tubing park. We were early so we did the cave tubing first to avoid the large groups. After the cave we did the zip line and headed to altun ha ruins. On the way to the ruins we stopped at one of Donald’s friend for lunch. Woooooow! Lunch was very tasty. It’s the best rice I have tasted. I had to meet the cook. Her name is Mitchelle. She told us the rice was cooked with freshly squeezed coconut milk.
After lunch we drove to the ruins. Donald did the tour of the ruins with us. This guy is a ware house of knowledge as stated in many forum posts. He told us about the history of the ruins, Belize Mayan History, Pointed out some medicinal plants and their uses. This was a fantastic tour and I recommend it to all. You will need to be a little pushy because NCL doesn’t let out the private tours early. You have to be pushy to get off the ship early. I recommend this blastful shore excursions.
Re: Belize Cruise Forums - Belize Zip Line, Cave Tubing, and Altun Ha Ruins
I booked with Action Boys Belize for a group of 5 for Altun Ha ruins, cave tubing, and zip-line. We visited in Belize on a Carnival Cruise in mid-July.
-We had a very good experience with Action Boys Belize. I wanted to book an excursion that included zip-lining, mayan ruins, and cave tubing, and Action Boys was one of the only excursions who provided all three activities in one day.
-I spoke with Donald over the phone before our trip, and he was fine with us paying cash when we arrived, rather than giving a deposit. I was happy about that. Also, he was very good about communicating via email about where to meet him and what to bring.
-When the cruise ship arrived in Belize, Carnival informed us that due to flooding, all of Carnival's cave tubing excursions were cancelled- even if there was another activity on the excursion. Lucky, since we booked through Action Boys, we were still able to zip-line and see the ruins.
-Donald was our tour guide, and was great about giving lots of information about the country of Belize, the towns we drove through, and lots of information about the Altun Ha ruins and vegetation (I believe he said his grandmother practiced herbal medicine, so he had extensive knowledge of the medicinal qualities of a lot of the plants- very interesting!).
-The van was in much better shape than some of the negative reviews imply. AC blew cold and it was a hot day.
Just to finish off.. It was fun fun fun!!!!
After finding Donald five years ago online, last week marks our forth time with Don exploring Belize. This time was different as we had eleven of the family with us and Don did his usual incredible job as tour guide extraordinaire !
We were sure to get on the first tender off the ship and there was Don waiting for us in a very nice 14 passenger air conditioned van. We quickly loaded up and were off on our way to the zip line after making a pit stop for water/Belikin refreshments.
As usual we were the first group to get to the zip line as when you go with Donald, you don't have to deal with the cattle drive scenario that the cruise ships sell. Why anybody would deal with bus after bus of cruise ship passengers, the huge lines and all that comes along with hundreds of people trying to do the zip line at the same time, when you can be the first ones there, zip at an unhurried pace and enjoy the family experience privately is more than worth any amount.
Speaking of amounts, we had the private bus with Don at the wheel, did the zip line, and the newly restored Belize zoo after the hurricane damage, and again, the first ones there, we had the place to ourselves, and a way less of the cost the ship was getting for only the zip line, and also great lunch of traditional Belize beans and rice and awesome chicken at his friends restaurant Amigos.
It is truly a no brainer to use Don's expertise and safety conscience driver skills if you are going to Belize and wish to do everything first class, at the right price.
Thanks again Don, and see you again someday for the fifth un-Beliezable experience!
Re: Belize Cruise Forums - Belize City HorseBack Riding
Just got back home after a fun cruise on the Valor. Belize Cruise Port was the highlight of our cruise. We booked zip line and horseback riding with Donald Ramirez ( http://donaldramirezbelizetours.bravehost.com ). We were off the ship on one of the early tenders and Donald was waiting for us at the Red Cross Building as promised. It was only 5 of us on the tour, which made is a lot personal. We drove about an hour to the jungle for the horseback riding. We crossed a river on a boat to a ranch where we did the horseback riding for about an hour. It was fun being in the jungle on a horse for the first time. After the ride we drove about 20 minutes to the zip line. There was a long line at the zip line and Donald instructed us to follow him to the front of the line. We were assisted with our gears and off we went. We also zipped over a river where the cave tubing is done. This was fun and I recommend it to you fellow cruisers.
