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. Follow in the footsteps and climb the Temple of the Masonry Altar and stand where Maya priests once stood.
This short tour is perfect for those looking for a cultural experience but don’t have a full day available. For those who have more time Altun Ha is a perfect combo with the Baboon Sanctuary, Cave Tubing or Belize Zoo tour.
