Altun Ha, once a model Mayan city, was the link in the Caribbean trade route that ran north through the Yucatán. Its ruins were discovered by quarriers looking for stone to build the Old Northern Highway. Their discovery of 2,000-year-old specimens was just the beginning of the uncovering of the remnants of 13 structures surrounding two plazas, including one 60-foot temple now called the Temple of the Sun God.

This adventure is even more enticing once you realize that the location is fairly close to Belize City and situated in the rain forest for an added experience.

The ruins are breathtaking and easily walked. You'll get expert guidance as you move from one plaza to the other through a forest path. Those who prefer to wait can rest on a bench, rather than hazard the uneven surface. As some of the areas are easily accessible, you'll still be able to see a good share of the ruins before making yourself comfortable.

Along with this experience, add a tour of Belize City, the life pulse of Belize. Belize City is teeming with commerce and has adapted its two sides of the river with a connection by the Swing Bridge. You'll see the bustle, along with historic Fort George, a variety of embassies, consulate homes, and an area called the Beverly Hills of Belize. Your visit to the Baron Bliss Lighthouse will be accompanied by its story. This and other landmarks from the colonial period will take you back almost 200 years.

Belize City, the largest city in this small country, has much to offer and will surprise you in many ways.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
