We took the Altun Ha tour with lunch and a city tour attached. The tour was fine, but the lunch was beams and rice in a small shack with folding tables. I made the mistake of paying for the tour in cash. Don't do that. The guide just put it into his pocket, called it a tip, and billed my credit card for the full amount.

My family and I visited this Mayan Temple on our recent trip to Belize as a part of our cruise stop. I personally loved how well kept and maintained the property is. Also our tour guide told us a wealth of information regarding the ruins and its preservation. Highly recommend this tour.

Also, there is a restaurant on site and the local food was amazing and given the summer's heat, water and soft drinks and snacks are also accessible for purchase after the tour.

The Mayan Ruins are easily accessible from the cruise port with a tour. The 45-minute drive to the site allows an opportunity to see some of the city and the countryside. The ruins themselves are fun to explore, to climb, and are very picturesque. Between the entrance to the ruins there are clean, accessible restrooms, and a nice little shopping area with a great atmosphere. There are a couple of open-air cafes, too, to get a beer and light meal. Overall, this is a fun experience.

We booked a tour to visit the site, and we’re fortunate to receive a great deal of information regarding the site, it’s history, the loss of material for local building as well as the Amber find they made the site an area of importance.
We had a couple of hours on site which was ample to walk up the various buildings. You really do appreciate the site from the top of the largest building and only guess what it was like in centuries past.
Worth a visit to get you away from the beach and the commercial areas.

Gilroy at Altun Ha Mayan Ruins did an amazing job! I loved the history, personal stories and he took photos for us as we climbed the ruins. We just did the ruins on our own and not part of a tour and Gilroy took great care of us and made it a fun adventure! Highly recommend him!!

This Mayan ruin is about 45 minutes from Belize City. Make sure you bring water, wear sun screen and if you are walking to the pond wear bug spray. The flat walk to the pond is about 10 minutes and the mosquitoes are vicious. We saw a crocodile in the pond. There is a little open air museum and bathrooms before you enter the ruins. You can walk up the ruins and it’s very scenic. The steps are very steep so be cautious. For the best pictures, get there early before the cruise ship tourists arrive. The “gift shop” was a bunch of locals selling trinkets.

Frederick gave us a guided tour of the ruins. He was extremely pleasant and informative. Very much enjoyed hearing the history of the ruins and other details you just can't get from a book or by walking around by yourself. He even pointed out different types of trees and fruits found around the property.
