Just a short drive north from Belize City along a humble stretch of country roads… through secondary rain forests, modern creole villages, and isolated farms, rises the majestic beauty of the Maya. The ancient ceremonial epicenter of the day… Altun Ha! Translated from generation to generation as “rock stone water”. Home to the Ancient Mayan Royal Priests presiding and ruling over this site for more than a few centuries.
Walk the path as of Maya Kings, Queens, and this cities Elite… wonder at the daily life, daydream of how the Maya created and traded with other Mayan centers in Meso America.
Learn of Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada more than 40 years ago now, when he along with his excavation team, discovered the tomb of a priest in the Temple of the Masonry Altars. In this temple they found a nine- and three-quarter pound jade carving of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau – a world famous and recorded event!
Climb as The Maya, on the prepared stone steps to the GODS! Engulf yourself in nature and feel the energy of these powerful ancient stargazers, thriving while leading the civilized worlds in the rain forests of Belize.
Listen to the echoes of Maya Civilizations while enjoying a delicious traditional Belizean lunch reflecting on the “travel through time experience”. After lunch we make our way back to Belize City The Jewel of the Caribbean.
Belize City, also known as the old British Colonial Capital of the country, before moving to Belmopan further on to the mainland.
Relax and enjoy your air-conditioned tour of our beautiful city… where we highlight our blend of the Caribbean in Central American with Colonial Architecture by the first British settlers and the story of who the Belizean people are and why Belize one of the most amazing places on Earth, before returning you and your group to your accommodations or transfer ( water taxi or Municipal airstrip) you will have time to check into your favorite social media platform and brag about your Mayan adventure.
