Enjoy with family a perfect half day trip! Altun Ha is the closest Maya temple to the Belize City port and is one of the largest accessible Maya sites in Belize boasting 2plazas and 13 structures. One of Belize’s prized national treasures, the world famous 10-pound jade head of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau was found here. Discover this ancient Maya city, explore the plazas and climb to the top of ceremonial temples with a panoramic view of the countryside. Your adventure begins with an air-conditioned drive through the countryside of the historic Creole villages of Belize. You’ll be provided with interesting facts of Creole living and of the Mayan daily lifestyle religion, and cultural ceremonies of the royal high priests. The main temple of the Masonry Altars is where the jade head was discovered in the tomb of one of the royal priests. A drawing of main temple is the logo of Belize's national Belikin beer. Stop in at the museum on site which provides an informative display of ancient living at Altun Ha which was occupied as early as 900 B.C.
