We took this tour, in conjunction with a river tour down the River Wallace, through our Royal Caribbean cruise. This site is simply beautiful. Its grounds are immaculately kept, and it is one of the most accessible & most thoroughly excavated of the Mayan sites in Belize. If you intend to climb the ruins, which are still allowed here at...

The Altun Ha Ruins are very impressive, if you go there is good to have a tour guide in order to understand and learn a little history of the place. Is good that people can go up the pyramids and take amazing pictures on the top. I strongly recommend this magical place.

This was just amazing to be at the site of ancient civilization. It was just an awesome experience. Watch out for mosquitos.

We booked a tour off the port during our RCI cruise. This was the one port we didn't prebook and excursion and we were able to bargain the price of a 3.5 hour city/ruins tour that included a stop at a rum factory for $170 for 5 people. I know, you don't have the guarantee that they'll hold the ship... More

If you flu into Belize, these are probably the easiest set of ruins to get to. Its not far from the airport. There is an entry fee. The grounds are pleasant and the ruins arent many, so its a quick walk. You can also climb most of these. Great views. The striking pyramid aon the Belikin beer label as well... More

We had already been to four of the other ruins in Belize on our trip (Xunatunich, Cahal Pech, Caracol, and Lamanai), but we were sooo glad we snuck this into our last day before we left the country! Very pretty and a well-kept park. We highly recommend using Belize Exotic Adventures... Jeevan was a great tour guide who was adaptable... More

Amazing time learning history of the ruins and the jade head found there. Our guides were great and very informative. Our children had lots of questions and the guides spent time with them and answered all the questions. Great hike up to the top as long as you are not afraid of heights. We then helped the locals by buying... More

We did a day trip from Ambergris Caye to Belize city and Altun Ha ruins. It was a 1.5-2 h drive from Belize City with a great tour guide. The ruins are just amazing and I love history so it was a wonderful day for the family. The museum was wonderful and our tour guide Cassandra was funny and informative.

My husband and I loved our day trip to Altun Ha. The Belizeans are proud that the site was the location for the largest jade carving discovered, and an image of the jade head is featured on their currency. We arrived a little around 9 AM, and the site was peaceful, with only a few other visitors. Tour buses started... More

After booking our hand-picked tour with Tsunami Adventures at Caye Caulker, Major Tom and his son, Julian, met us at the San Pedro Express Ferry port. After that, Julian and his older brother, Jr. Tom, took us to the "Belize City Sign" by the ocean so that me and my girlfriend could take a "classic touristic picture". From thereon, since... More
