In about an hour, we’ll reach our destination, the glorious Altun Ha Maya Ruins. Greeted by the haunting calls of howler monkeys, you’ll feel an electric charge in the air, the echo of a time when these stones told a different story—a story of gods, of kings, and of an empire that once dominated Central America.
Your guide, an expert in Mayan history and Belizean lore will lead you through the complex painting a vivid picture of the past as you tour the ruins. As you stand before the Temple of the Masonry Altars, the site’s largest and most significant structure feel the same awe that generations of Mayans once did.
