Description
Altun Ha, which means “Rockstone Pond”, is located 31 miles north of Belize City on the Old Northern Highway. Your expert guide will lead you on this excursion. This site is rich with wildlife: hundreds of species of birds, crocodiles in the ancient reservoir, armadillos, bats, squirrels, tapirs, and more have all been spotted at this site. Altun Ha was a ceremonial site that has two main temples and 13 additional structures. Located near the Caribbean Sea, it was part of a network of other sites near the coast. The discovery of tombs at the site indicates that Altun Ha was inhabited by the elite ruling class. Another interesting feature of this site is the reservoir which was made by the ancient people. The bottom of the reservoir contains yellow clay, which hardened to form a base that retains water. Enjoy learning more about this wealthy Mayan site!
