In June of 1990 we visited Belize for a day trip from a dive cruise ship that came into port at Belize City (photo above). In addition to seeing the city, our principal purpose was to visit the ruins at the Altun Ha Maya site. It is located north and inland from Belize city. It is an interesting ruin that is not totally developed and overrun by tourists. The photo below shows the main ruin hidden in the forest.
