The Altun Ha and Baboon Sanctuary shore excursions starts with a short one hour drive from Belize City to the Community baboon sanctuary. The Baboon Sanctuary shore excursion is a true nature-lover’s excursion, as a rainbow of butterflies, birds, and reptiles can be seen while traversing through high grass and thick undergrowth. The most esteemed sighting is undoubtedly that of a family of black howler monkeys casually lounging in an oasis of fruit trees. The animals appear to welcome the spectators as they swing avidly from branch to branch and chatter boisterously among themselves. The booming vocal roar of an adult male serves to alert the pack of the arrival of the visitors. Photo opportunities are in abundance but undeniably the most priceless keepsake is that everlasting mental portrait and the feeling of absolute freedom and relaxation that is uniquely experienced amidst Belize’s unspoiled wilderness!
After your spectacular tour of the Baboon Sanctuary you freeboard your van for a 45 minute drive to the Magestic Maya Temples of Altun Ha. Along quaint country roads, secondary rainforest, Creole villages and isolated farms, raises the majestic beauty of the Maya ceremonial center, Altun Ha (rock stone pond). Royal priests ruled Altun Ha for many centuries, and traded with other Mayan centers in Meso America. Some 55 plus years ago, Dr. David Pendergast of the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada, along with his excavation team, discovered a tomb of a priest in the Temple of the Masonry Altars, and in it, a nine and three quarter pound jade carving of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau – a world famous event! Climb prepared stone steps to the stars! Surround yourself with the aura of these ancient stargazers living in the rain-forests of Belize.
