All Maya Temples are not created equal. Altun Ha is the nearest excavated Maya Temple to Belize City and is probably the most visited by Belizean school children from all over the country. You can take the trip to see this beautiful Maya Temple with the wide-open spaces so unbelievably close to the city, and still be back at your hotel for a leisurely afternoon by the pool, sipping your favorite drink. The temples are easily climbed and are not as tall as Lamanai and Xunantunich.
After trekking an ancient home of the Maya, take a tour of the present-day city that is the heart of Belize.
