“Altun Ha was OK to see once.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I wasn't nearly as impressed by Altun Ha as by many of the other ruins in the country. It's good for a few hours of hiking.

“another must do in belize”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

You have to do at least 1 maya village tour and I really enjoyed the Altun Ha tour. It's nice to see them restore a village to what it would have looked like back in the day..

“Good place close to Belize city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you do not want to travel for a long distance, these ruins are smaller yet still quite larger and give you a real flavor of Myan rujns. Skip the all day and go see these

“Must See Belize”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

The Altun Ha ruins are excellent. About 40 minutes outside Belize City, these ancient Maya ruins are what's left of a once thriving city that served as a commercial hub between the Caribbean coast and the inland Maya cities. Some of the structures lie dormant beneath centuries of dirt and organic material but a lot of the area has been excavated. Much of what you see exposed has been restored, but that's the case with just about all the Maya ruins left today. We arranged our visit with Jaguar Adventure Tours and had Robert as our guide. He was great company and very knowledgeable of this Maya city. Robert also treated us to a local roadhouse for a great Belizean lunch.
After lunch we stopped at the Belize Zoo where Robert gave us a private tour making sure we got to see and learn about all of these indigenous animals.
