Even though Altun Ha is small as compared to other ruins in the region, the extent to which the site has been cleared and restored makes it easy to imagine its past glory and wealth as a major ceremonial center. The most spectacular find here was a jadeite carving of the head of Kinich Ahau, the Sun God.
