Activities

Visit Altun Ha Maya Site: Certainly the most popular destination near the village is this ancient Maya site, famous for being home to the largest jade head found in Belize. The site is popular for cruise ship tours and so it is best viewed in the tranquility of early morning or late afternoon.


Farm & Wildlife Observation Garden: A local eco-tourist resort, Pueblo Escondido offers a view at sustainable farming that draws on the traditions of the Maya and combines them with modern practices. They have also intentionally planted crops that will attract birds and animals so that they can be observed in their natural habitats. For more information, visit www.pueblo-escondido.net.
