Altun Ha ?? worth the trip?

Have been to Tulum and Chizen several times. For those of you that have been to both how does Altun Ha compare?? We are coming in on a Cruise ship in Feb and trying to decide what to do?? Things that we love snorkling, beaches and also Mayan ruins.... Would appreciate any suggestions that you have :] thanks

I didn't think Altun Ha compared to either of those. I'd suggest cave tubing, and zip lining too. You can snorkel at other stops.

Or certainly, opt to see lamanai site instead of Altun Ha, which I find quite interesting and plays an important role in the history of the Maya in Belize

Lamanai is amazing, and just the ride there is exciting. It's on the New Lagoon, so you'd take a bus for around 30 minutes or so, and then a great boat ride to the ruins. You'll see crocs and tons of birds on the way.
