Altun Ha Maya Ruin and Maruba Spa

Combine history, culture, and relaxation on this tour of the Altun Ha ruins and the Maruba Spa. The spa has treatment areas out in the open that blend in with the jungle surroundings.

Your tour begins with a boat voyage down the river, giving you the chance to appreciate the jungle scenery. Eventually you’ll arrive at Bomba Village, where you can take some time to explore the local woodworking shops. Next, you’ll take a bus to the Altun Ha, a site that the Maya first built in the 2nd century. The main building here is the Temple of the Masonry Altars—it’s 54 feet (16 m) tall and visitors are allowed to climb it.

After your informative tour of Altun Ha, you’ll head to Maruba Spa where you’ll have lunch. Then you have the option to choose from an interesting selection of spa services. Maruba specializes in mud treatments, and there’s an outdoor area with several stone mud tubs.
