Altun Ha Mayan Ruin

Altun Ha is the most extensively excavated ruin in Belize and is located 31 miles north of Belize City. This site was a major ceremonial center during the Classic Period, as well as a vital trade center that linked the Caribbean shores with other Maya centers in the interior. The ruin consists of two main plazas with some thirteen temple and residential structures.

The "Jade Head", representing the Sun God, Kinich Ahau, is the most significant find. At approximately six inches high and weighing over nine pounds, it’s still to this day the largest carved jade object in the whole Maya area.
