Touring Altun Ha

Today we left the hotel after breakfast with Major Tom and Mike as our tour guides for the Altun Ha ruins. The Altun Ha ruin are part of the National Park sytem of Belize and features 5 prominent structures. Archeologists believe that Altun Ha was a religious center rather then a city center, where many priests lived. The largest structure was the Sun Temple, where the priests would honor the Sun god, preforming ceremonies to ensure the sun would rise each morning.

The group enjoyed our last dinner at the Princess Hotel tonight of beef fajitas. Tomorrow we will be leaving mainland Belize for San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.
