Attractions near Maruba Resort Jungle Spa
Visit the Altun Ha ruins
Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is located around 60 kilometres north of Belize City, so it's a great starting point to explore the local Mayan ruins. One of the closest is the Altun Ha ruins, a former village that covers an area of eight square kilometres.
The village dates back to around 900 BC and was first excavated in 1961. Since the 1970s, they have been a major tourist destination. As you wander around the ancient place, you'll see where the common homes were as you gaze at the large pyramid-like structures that were used for religious ceremonies.
Tour the Lamanai region
To the north of Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is an area in Lamanai known as Orange Walk – full of activities and destinations for tourists to enjoy. You can arrange a tour through a local agency, where your guide will take you along the river and teach you about local wildlife and fauna. A highlight for many travellers is seeing the native spider monkeys.
After the cruise you'll go on a short hike to get to the Mayan ruins of Lamanai – some of the best-preserved buildings from that period. Your guide for the day can enlighten you further regarding the pyramids' significance to the Mayan civilisation.
