This fascinating half-day tour focuses on the contrast between the ancient Mayan city of Altun Ha and modern day Belize City, highlighting 1,000 years of development. Altun Ha is Mayan for “Rock Stone Water” thrived as a trading post to the Mayan world during the Classic and Post Classic periods. The site was made world famous by Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum upon his discovery of the world's largest carved Jade Head, depicting the sun god Kinich Ahau. Weighing in at almost 9 pounds, this has been Belize’s most valuable find.


Belize City today is home to about 35% of the country’s population and remains the commercial capital of the country. Your tour will pass by historical sites such as redbrick St. John’s Cathedral, where Kings from the Mosquito Coast were crowned. The tour ends at the Smoky Mermaid for complimentary drinks.
