This was our first excursion from our Central America cruise. Not too far from the port and an interesting drive through Belize city and then through pretty countryside. Altun Ha was our first experience of Mayan history and architecture (there is plenty in central America)...More

We recently visited this place with our three teenage children and two grandmas. Leandra did a good job of explaining the gist of the location. We climbed the pyramids and took the ten minute walk to the pond. Overall a great visit.

I try to do the mayan ruins at any port available. I am glad I picked this one because you are still allowed to climb these. Beautiful and expansive area.

I took the tour with the cruise line. You can Google tour guides in Belize and select from there. I now live in Belmopan, Belize. If you can't find what you want, let me know and I will make some contacts.
