ALTUN HA WITH CITY TOUR
$49 Per Person (4 Hours)
once a model Mayan city, was the link in the Caribbean trade route that
ran north through the Yucatán. Its ruins were discovered by quarriers
looking for stone to build the Old Northern Highway. Their discovery of
2000-year-old specimens were just the beginning of the uncovering of the
remnants of 13 structures surrounding two plazas, including one 60-foot
temple now called the Temple of the Sun God.
This adventure is even more enticing once you realize that the location is fairly close to Belize City and situated in the rain forest for an added experience.
The ruins are breathtaking and easily walked. You will get expert guidance as you move from one plaza to the other through a forest path. Those who prefer to wait can find some benches rather than hazard the uneven surface. As some of the areas are easily accessible, they will be able to see a good share of the ruins before making themselves comfortable.
Along with this experience, add a tour of Belize City, the life pulse of Belize. Belize City is teeming with commerce and has adapted its two sides of the river with a connection by the Swing Bridge. You will see the bustle, along with historic Fort George, a variety of embassies, consulate homes, and an area called the Beverly Hills of Belize. Your visit to the Baron Bliss Lighthouse will be accompanied by its story. This and other landmarks from the colonial period will take you back almost 200 years.
Belize City, the largest city in this small country, has much to offer and will surprise you in many ways.
