Altun Ha translates to “rockstone pond”. The site dates back to 200 B.C. and covers an area of 44 acres. The site is rich with wildlife like armadillos, bats, agouti, coati, tapir, raccoons, foxes and white tailed deer. 200 species of birds have been recorded and even crocodiles inhabit the large Maya-made water reservoir. This city was a very wealthy ceremonial center and this is evidenced by excavation of the green tomb and the internationally famous jade head.

In the village of Bermudian landing the people have established a special relationship with the black howler monkeys. It took years to foster this relationship of trust with the villagers and now visitor can actually interact face to face with these friendly creatures.
