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’ll depart from Belize City towards the “Old Northern Road” to see
this beautiful Maya Temple with wide-open spaces. The temples are easily
climbed and are not as tall as Lamanai and Xunantunich.
trekking an ancient home of the Maya, you’ll head to the tiny village of
Bermudian Landing to visit The Community Baboon Sanctuary. Founded in 1985 the
aim of the sanctuary was to show farmers in the area that protecting the habitat
of the Black Howler Monkey could bring sustainability to the village. Your
guide will show you the monkeys up close as they scamper across rope
suspensions bridges throughout the village. You won’t miss the howl of this
small monkey that sounds like it’s coming from a much bigger animal.
This will be a day of archaeological history
and wildlife all within a few miles of Belize City. Be back at your hotel in
time for happy hour and a late afternoon swim.
