This was a wonderful trip and enjoyable visit to the ruins. There were street vendors there that was a great part of the visit. The weather was warm and the trip was great to see the history there. Hard to imagine the small mayans climbing those large steps up to the top of the pyramid.

our trip to the ruins was excellent. The tour guide on the bus was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour guide at the site was also excellent. The best part of site was seeing the ruins in different stages of 'discovery'. Some were still covered with dirt from being buried, some were half uncovered, and some were fully visible. One...

Visiting the Mayan Temples at Altun Ha was a great experience for my wife and myself. Our tour guide Joyce was a very knowledgeable not only on the Mayan history but also about the whole country. A must see for history seekers.

We visited Altuna Ha as a part of a shore excursion. Our tour guide Wallus was amazing! He was knowledgeable about the the country, Mayan history, vegetation, and the economy. Although the bus was tight with 14 larger than average adults we made it work. Even with 3 uncooperative passengers Wallus remained calm and kept the tour of the ruins... More

These ruins were AWESOME to experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the local history surrounding these ruins. It was worth the 1 1/2 hour bus ride. Remember that there are no McDonald's there so maybe pack yourself a snack.

If this is your first visit to Mayan ruins this will be quite impressive. If you are experienced, you will enjoy the nuances of this site. This is an easy walk if you do not climb any of the pyramids. One of the niceties is the ability to scale the structures, some of which have special stairways built into them... More

The Ruins are somewhat remote but beautiful and worth the trip out to visit them. They weren't half as busy as other Ruins I've visited in the past. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Mayan culture and he was happy to share it with us. He walked us through the grounds. And we even got to climb the outside... More

We ended up here after a driven bus tour of Belize with our 16 and 7 y/o in tow. Had an interesting time walking around the ruins and hearing about the history of the site. There is a small restroom and four room self walk through museum facility there along with local vendors hawking all sorts of souvenirs. Some of... More

My husband and I and our good friend took a cruise and booked the "Altun Ha Mayan Ruins and River Wallace Tour", I believe through the Chukka Adventures company. While it started a little later than it was scheduled, it was well worth the wait. We were finally put on a motorcoach bus and driven to the small Mayan site.... More
