Private Altun Ha Mayan Ruins, Lunch & Belize City Tour
Join us on a journey back in time as we explore the pre-classic-era Altun Ha Mayan ruins tour from Belize City, exclusively for your group! Altun Ha was a significant trading post and city of the Mayan civilization, featuring well-preserved ceremonial structures that offer a glimpse into this ancient culture. After the ruins you'll get to enjoy a traditional Belizean lunch as well as a tour of Belize City's historical highlights before returning to your ship or hotel.
Your private 5-hour tour begins with a pick-up from Belize City port or hotel, followed by a scenic 45-60 minute drive north into the jungle. Upon arrival at Altun Ha, your expert guide will lead you through the partially-restored site, providing detailed information about each structure's purpose and its connections to other influential Mayan sites, including the mighty Teotihuacan in Mexico. While exploring, keep an eye out for the many resident iguanas basking in the sun.
Discover two large plazas and climb to the top of the site's pyramid - a rare privilege at most Mayan ruins - to admire stunning views and imagine what life was like during the height of the Mayan civilization.
After a fascinating exploration of Belize's Mayan history, we'll return you to Belize City where you will enjoy an authentic local lunch. Visit top sights and historical structures in Belize city as your knowledgeable guide takes you to top attractions in the city before you return to your starting point.
