We hired Jimmy Robinson as our tour guide for the trip to Altun Ha, Mayan site and to howler monkey forest. Jimmy is very knowledgeable and gave to us a lot of information about rain forest and ruins. It was so cool to see monkeys in a wild too. I would recommend to go to this tour and hired Jimmy...

Luis Portillo and his brother Jose are fabulous guides-- knowledgable, articulate, fun and very responsible! We loved our trip to Altun Ha, learning a lot from Luis about the Mayans and getting fun exercise climbing up the ruins. Great informational area as well, and some of the best hand-made arts and crafts available from local artists at the end.

We hired a taxi for the day-Mark Sutherland with Belize Prizeland Tours; we had an amazing day! Altun Ha was gorgeous and Mark was a fantastic guide. We loved the drive to the ruins which gave us time to ask questions and learn about the local people, villages, and culture. It was an experience we will never forget! The shopping... More

It does not look like the picture. There is nothing here but steps. Apparently the government has not kept this site up. Very misleading.

This was an excursion booked on our cruise ship. The guides were great. Grounds were kept neat and clean. Lots of good information was presented. We were able to climb any ruins that we wanted to. Great shopping outside of the ruins with good prices. Bus to get there had A/C, which was nice in the July heat. Would definitely... More

The Altun Ha ruins are extremely interesting. We arrived on a cruise ship and took a van that held 7 passengers. The trip to the Mayan ruins was about a 45 minute drive. The good part was that the ruins are truly interesting to see and it is great that we were able to climb up them to the top.... More

We visited Altun Ha as part of a cruise tour. It was very hot that day, but the ruins were worth the trip. These are remarkably preserved and very interesting. There is a great photo point from the top of the large pyramid. There are local vendors and a small bar at the sight for purchasing drinks, snacks and souvenirs.... More
