Altun Ha has an aura that makes you feel the former residents are silently watching you traipse across their scared place. The compact nature of the site makes it an excellent choice for a first time visitor seeking to get an idea of how these incredibly gifted people lived.

We had Brandon, a registered guide who we met as we parked, to walk us through. He was very informative and fun and totally worth the guide fee to truly understand what you are exploring. The scope of the excavation and restoration at Altun Ha makes it come to life. Do climb the main temple, view from the top of the entire site is worth the modest effort.

We took this carnival sponsored excursion because it was the shortest offered for that day! We recieved a great tour along the way to the ruins with a ton of interesting information about the culture in Belize!

The ruins were beautiful, it was very hot, but we still really enjoyed it! The nuts are good and so are the plantains, buy some! The tour was very informative!

We actually did this tour in 2005, but is still offered. We got drenched as it was pouring during the boat ride. Altun Ha is a must see.

A very interesting site in terms of mayan culture and displaying their obvious architectural capability

I took a long tour throughout this river in addition to visiting the Altun Ha ruins and it was amazing! It's a long river but abundant with wildlife. I saw some crocodiles, iguana, a few howler monkeys. In addition, there was a dolphin that kept jumping in the air (you could see the entire dolphin and not just the fins) and following our boat. I hoped that I would see wildlife and was lucky enough to be able to see a nice amount of it. Highly recommended if visiting Belize.
