Lace up your shoes and prepare to get a workout on this Belize excursion as you explore the famous ruins of Altun Ha. Translated as"Rockstone Pond" in the Mayan language, this multi-structure archeological site covers 44 acres and was occupied from B.C. 900 to about A.D. 1000.
This family-friendly, 4 hour tour is perfect for those who want to get a little exercise while visiting some of the area's must-see attractions. Wander through the structures to see the Central Precinct and the Sun God Tomb. See the traces of fire on structure C17 and climb 54 feet up the Temple of the Masonry Altars - the site's largest structure and the logo inspiration for Belikin, Belize's leading brand of beer - for a bird's eye view of the entire site.
Notice the large crocodiles inhabiting the Maya-made pond adjacent to the main temple throughout this Belize excursion. This area is also rich with other wildlife including armadillos, bats, paca, foxes, raccoons, tapir and white tailed deer. Remember to snap some photos to grace the walls of your home or office. Visit the museum and check out the artifacts then stop in one of the many small shops and pick up a souvenir or two before heading back to your ship.

Our tour guide was really knowledgeable about the whole city and knew a lot of facts. He also gave a great tour of the ruins, showing us things you wouldn't see if you were there on your own. It was a small group of five so we got to see everything and he gave us time to explore yourself. Got some great photos and learned a lot.
We took a large group of extended family on this tour and everyone enjoyed it very much. The guides were great and gave us a lot of interesting information both on the bus ride and at Altun Ha. Altun Ha was amazing and it was a great excursion!

Our guide Clifford went out of his way to give us a great experience. Not only did he give our group information on Altun Ha but also taught us about the local history and plant life. The highlight for us was climbing the Mayan Temple.

My wife and I, we enjoyed this wonderful excursion. The driver and host for this journey was very friendly and knew the history of the place. He pleasantly explained us about the Temples/Monuments and their inhabitants. Even though it was raining on that day, our host walked in the rain with us to show us this amazing historical site.
