Belize - Altun Ha ruins...photos and video!

Recommended Posts

We were on the Carnival Conquest the week of Feb 8th with port stops in Belize, Grand Cayman, Roatan, and Cozumel.  I did a few videos to share and thought I would do a short review of this excursion and answer any questions you have.

We booked the excursion "Altun Ha Mayan Ruins with lunch" which was listed as 4 hours.  It was actually more like 4 1/2 hours not counting the shuttle from the ship each way.  If you have a little interest in Mayan ruins and want to only do a short tour, this is the one for you.  If you are very interested in seeing Mayan ruins and learning about the civilizations, then I recommend the tour to Lamanai or Xunantunich.  Those tours are longer, and have much more detail and impressive ruins.  Altun Ha is not a bad site, it is nice and actually has more structures than I expected, but having done many tours of ancient ruins, this one is just a taste of history, not an immersion.  


I will be loading the photos to my Smugmug account later in the week, and I will post them on this thread... for now I have a video to share.

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering about 2 things - Of the 4 1/2 hours, how much was spent on travel to and from the ruins, and how much was spent at the ruins? Also, what did the lunch consist of?

Thank you for the video and pictures.  I am scheduled to take this excursion in September.
