Altun Ha Maya Ruins

Altun Ha Maya Site

Altun Ha ruins are famous because they found a Jade Head, which is the largest carved jade object in the whole Maya area. It is the national symbol of Belize, which you can see on every banknote. Altun Ha was a major ceremonial center in the Classic Period (250-900 AD) and functioned as a vital trading center linking the Caribbean shores with other Maya centers. After your visit to Altun Ha we stop for lunch. We journey back to Belize City. Water taxi back to Caye Caulker.

Spend the day exploring the Cayo district. An amazing view to Guatemala and surrounding rainforest. We start the day departing Caye Caulker at 7:00AM. Our guide will take us an hour and half journey to San Ignacio. We cross the Mopan River by ferry to take a walking tour of the ruins of Xunantunich. Xunantunich (shoo-NAHN-too-nich)  means “Stone Woman” in the Maya language. Most of the structures date from the Maya Classic Era, about 200 to 900. Consisting of a series of six plazas surrounded by more than 26 temples and palaces. One of its structures, the pyramid known as “El Castillo,” the second tallest structure in Belize (after the temple at Caracol), at some 130 feet (40 m) tall.[1] Archeological excavations have revealed a number of fine stucco facades on some of the ancient temples of this site. Evidence of construction suggests the temple was built in three stages in the 600s AD, 700s AD, and 800s AD. The fine stucco or “frieze” are located on the final stage. Next stop Cahal Pech. We like to call this tour Twin Cities. Cahal Pech is a mid-sized complex settled around 1000 BC and abandoned by 800 AD. The site consists of seven plazas and over 30 structures including temples, residential buildings, ballcourts, an altar and a sweathouse, all situated on a compact 2 acres. The name Cahal Pech is a combination Kekchi & Mopan Mayan, meaning Place of the Ticks, and refers to the fact that the surrounding area was once used as pasture land. There are no more ticks here than at any other site – very few, if any! Lunch will be enjoyed at San Ignacio Town. You can order from the menu.

Actun Tunichil Muknal Belize Cave Tour or ATM

The entrance to ATM

ATM - Actun Tunich Muknal entrance

ceremonial pottery of ATM Caves

For the fit and adventurous this is hands down the most talked about cave in Belize. This no longer has to be an overnight away from the island. At Tsunami Adventures, we offer this a day trip with plenty of time to enjoy this trip. Departing Caye Caulker at 7am and returning on the last boat reaching the island at 6:30pm ATM was discovered in 1989 and open to the general public since 1998, the ATM cave is a full five kilometers deep. We journey 2 kilometers into the cave. After a 45 minute walk in the cool tropical rainforest and across three streams you enter its hourglass-shaped mouth for a 10 meters swim in water at most 5 meters deep, to land on a rock shelf. The next 600+ meters is a journey of well over a half hour filled with many sharp & slippery edges, water depth alternates from just covering your toes to portions where only the tallest won’t need to swim. Helmets provided and mandatory. Along the way you pass many calcite formations, a few which have undergone minor sculpting (purpose unknown), by the Maya. After this distance, you ascend 2 or 3 meters to a shelf above the river. From this point forward is shallowed ground, where you walk barefoot (with socks only). Don’t forget to bring your socks and bring shoes like Teva’s or Keens or finger toe shoes or similar. As you go forward you encounter increasing amounts of pottery of all sizes, their condition from near intact to completely shattered. Catalogued within the cave are over 1400 artifacts – pottery, tools, and ceremonial items dating from 1 to 1000 AD – including over 200 vessels. While over half of all the items appear in plain sight in small pools, they are also tucked away between stalagmites, on small, high shelves or other unusual places. The artwork found in Actun Uayazba Kab in unmatched when compared to any other site.
The deeper in the cave you go, the more recent the activities of the Mayas were. Use of the cave by the Mayas of the Late Preclassic (1 to 250 AD), tended to stay near the mouth of the cave, whereas later generations moved further into the cave, perhaps believing that this would bring them closer to the lords of Xibalba. The closer to the gods, the better the chance the ceremonies would be answered. Pottery of all sizes and styles lay within the cave, all broken to release the spirits contained within.
A not-so-common artifact are human remains. So far, remains from fourteen individuals have been found; 7 adults & 7 children, all under the age of 5. These are not the ceremonial burials found in the other two caves in the area, but are sacrificial victims. They were all likely sacrificed in the hopes of appeasing the gods and bringing rain. Young victims, particularly females, were important for rituals to be “zuhui” – pure & uncontaminated in the eyes of the gods. The Crystal Maiden was a young woman of about 20 years old whose complete remains lie at the back of the cave. It is believed that she was clubbed and left for dead, and with the passing of time she has been cemented to the floor in a layer of brown calcite. (To reach her final resting place, you must climb aluminum ladders mounted on a sheer rock face!) Don’t choose this tour if you are not an extreme adventure lover, it is not for the faint hearted!
