The Altun Ha Mayan Ruins are a beautiful example of the Mayan architectural accomplishments from well over 2000 years ago in Belize.
Altun Ha is one of the most famous Mayan Centers founded around 900 bc, perhaps a few centuries earlier. The Mayan Center was undoubtedly one of the smallest in Belize but an extremely important Trading Post for the Mayan Civilization at the time.
Once hidden in the thick jungle the Mayan Temples of Belize have since been restored to their original splendor. One cannot help but feel the ever-present Mayan Spirit when visiting these spectacular sites.
Altun Ha is located close to the Belize City Port, a short 1hr drive from the Cruise Ship Terminal. The Temples and manicured grounds at Altun Ha make your visit to this magnificent ancient City a fantastic family-oriented activity.
You will not find steep hills or sudden drop-offs. Instead, you will walk over smooth, manicured grass and paths. You will be able to admire all the structures or walk to the top of some of the most majestic Mayan Temples to be found in Central America with ease.
Belize offers exemplary Mayan Ruins. These ancient Mayan Temples were once Cities, Towns, Religious Temples and major trading posts for the ancient Mayan civilization.
The Altun Ha explorations are followed by a wonderful Belizean lunch. Belize is well known for its tropical cuisine. The Belize national dish, Belizean Baked Chicken and Rice & Beans are not to be missed!
