Altun Ha Travel Guide

Altun Ha

If you've never experienced an ancient Mayan city, make a trip to Altun Ha, which is a modern translation of the Mayan name "Rockstone Pond," a nearby village. It's not Belize's most dramatic site—Caracol and Lamanai vie for that award—but it's one of the most accessible and most thoroughly excavated. The first inhabitants settled before 300 BC, and their descendants finally abandoned the site after AD 1000. At its height during the Classic period the city was home to 10,000 people.
