You have to do at least 1 maya village tour and I really enjoyed the Altun Ha tour. It's nice to see them restore a village to what it would have looked like back in the day..

If you do not want to travel for a long distance, these ruins are smaller yet still quite larger and give you a real flavor of Myan rujns. Skip the all day and go see these

The Altun Ha ruins are excellent. About 40 minutes outside Belize City, these ancient Maya ruins are what's left of a once thriving city that served as a commercial hub between the Caribbean coast and the inland Maya cities.

If you like seeing ruins up close and getting a chance to hike up a ruin this is a great place to visit. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. Lots of history in the area.

The excursion was one to remember. Caves were beautiful and our guide made it even more amazing. Great to learn more about the Maya culture. Not for everyone though. You have to be pretty fit.

Remarkable. The site itself is magnificent. Composed of three neighboring sites, easily walkable. We were able to climb to the top of one site with the help of a rope) and the view was tremendous.
