On this Altun Ha day trip you will visit the county’s most loved and well known Mayan city.
Altun Ha is one of the most excavated and restored locations, and it is also the nearest to Belize City. Its plazas are surrounded by towering temples, easily climbed.
You will find yourself walking over smooth manicured grass and paths through this spectacular site where you can feel the ever-present Maya spirit.
After trekking around an ancient home of the Maya, you’ll head to the tiny village of Bermudian Landing to visit The Community Baboon Sanctuary. This community runs projects of sustainable ecotourism that protects the habitat of the endangered Black Howler Monkey and other species.
You will find yourself in nature and witness Black Howler Monkeys in the wild and wonder at the majesty of the rain forest.
