Experience a clash of cultures, from ancient ruins to modern-day city life on this half-day excursion.
A panoramic drive through Belize City allows you to see colonial architecture juxtaposed with modern construction as you head to Altun Ha.
This is the Mayan ceremonial center where the famous jade head of the sun god, Kinich Ahau, was found during an expedition led by the Royal Ontario Museum. The site, set in pristine rain forest, has three plazas and thirteen structures within its perimeter and was a vital trade center during the Classic Period (AD 250-900). Stone steps allow visitors to climb the main temples (weather permitting).
There are many steps to climb to reach the tops of the temples. This is optional, and participants can elect not to climb to the top. Children 4 years of age and under may participate free of charge.
