Description
Altun Ha is an ancient Mayan City about 30 miles north of Belize City, dating back to about B.C. 900. It is believed the city was occupied for centuries up until A.D. 1000, covering the classic period A.D. 250-900, the time from which most of the information of this city was gathered and the time when the city was at its height.

The name Altun Ha means “Rockstone Water”, and it is derived by the name of a nearby village called Rockstone Pond, but Altun-Ha’s ancient name remains unknown. The largest temple of Altun Ha is the Temple of the Masonry Altars which stand 54 feet high. The Sun God’s Tomb is also found on this temple dated for about A.D. 600-650, in which researchers found a skeleton and various artifacts when the tomb was excavated.

The tour offers a complimentary hour & 30 minutes Water Taxi transfer to Belize City where you will journey along Caye Caulker, Caye Chapel, mangroves and get a glimpse of St. George’s Caye before arriving the commercial City of Belize where you will meet your tour guide. From there you board on a private vehicle with your guide as you begin your road trip to Altun Ha.
