Driving Northern Highway to Altun Ha - 10/17/20 11:01 AM
This video was filmed in December 2019. This is a view from the car of the road that leads to the Altun Ha Maya Ruins (after veering right at the junction off the Northern Highway aka Philip Goldson Highway).
Altun Ha is located 31 miles north of Belize City on the Old Northern Highway. A two-mile dirt road connects the main road to the site. The area around the Altun Ha is rich in wildlife including armadillos, bats, squirrels, agouti, paca, foxes, raccoons, coati, tapir and the white-tailed deer. Two hundred species of birds have been recorded and there are large crocodiles that inhabit the Maya-made water reservoir.
