This half-day tour focuses on the contrast between the ancient Maya city of Altun Ha and modern Belize City, highlighting 1000 years of evolution in this former British Colony. Altun Ha (Maya for "Rock Stone Water") flourished as an outpost in the Maya world during the Post-Classic and Classic periods.
Today, Belize City is home to approximately 35% of the country's population and remains the commercial capital of the country but the official capital was moved to Belmopan in 1971.
Your city tour includes historic sites like the red-brick St. John's Cathedral and the colonial house once occupied by British Governors. You will also notice the wooden colonial architecture of most of the houses during the visit.
