The Mayan ruins of Altun Ha explained by our Belizean guide

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Jenivieve Lamby was our most excellent guide for the start of our tour at the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha in Belize! Altun Ha is the name an ancient Maya city in Belize, located in the Belize District about 50 kilometres (30 miles) north of Belize City and about 10 kilometres (6 miles) west of the Caribbean Sea. The site covers an area of about 8 square kilometres (5 square miles) but did not come to the attention of archeologists until 1963.

Altun Ha was occupied from about B.C. 900 to A.D. 1000. Most of the information on Altun Ha comes from the Classic Period from about A.D. 400 to A.D. 900, when the city was at its largest.

I was just there last week with Jenny as my guide! She was really great - our other guide in the village was Frederick, he was really knowledgeable too.
We also found out that our tour guide (Jenny, in the green) is the granddaughter of the local man who actually discovered the Jade Head while digging. I was genuinely in awe the whole time at this place.
