An hour northward out of Belize City, your disembarkation point, along quaint country roads, secondary rain-forest, Creole villages and isolated farms, rises the majestic beauty of the Maya ceremonial center called Altun Ha (rock stone pond). Royal priests ruled Altun Ha for many centuries, and traded with other Mayan centers in Meso America. Some 50+ years ago, Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada, along with his excavation team, discovered a tomb of a priest in the Temple of the Masonry Altars, and in it, a nine and three quarter pound jade carving of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau – a world famous event! Climb prepared stone steps to the stars! Surround yourself with the aura of these ancient stargazers living in the rain-forests of Belize.
After a delicious Belizean lunch, and your time travel experience of the Maya Civilization, move back to Belize City, old British colonial capital of Belize, and enjoy your city tour, highlighting a blend of Caribbean, Central American and colonial architecture; then return to your start point at the water taxi, municipal airstrip or hotel in Belize City.
