What You Can Expect

Belize City and Altun Ha Mayan Site Tour

Altun Ha Pyramid

Meet your guide at 9am at the lighthouse by your Belize City port or at your hotel, and get a taste of local history on a best-of trip through Belize City that includes landmarks like St John’s Anglican Church, a historic, hand-cranked swing bridge over Haulover Creek, colonial buildings and a vibrant shopping district. Hear every word your guide is saying on a personal headset as you find out how the city was built on wealth from the rum and mahogany trades.

Enjoy views of the countryside on the 30-mile (50km) drive to Altun Ha, a Mayan site that’s among the most important historic places in the country. Explore daily life, ritual and warfare in a Maya city, and see where archeologists unearthed one of the Mayan world’s largest pieces of carved jade. Walk a pair of sprawling plazas surrounded by stone structures, and enjoy the serene, park-like atmosphere of the archeological site.

If you’re up for a climb, take on Altun Ha’s central temple; scramble to the top of the 54-foot (16-meter) structure for panoramic views that photographers will love. After visiting Altun Ha, you’ll have some free time to buy lunch at a nearby restaurant, or browse the souvenirs in local shops before the bus takes you back to port.
