Altun Ha

Getting there & away

Many tours run to Altun Ha from Belize City, Caye Caulker, or from San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.

To get here in your own vehicle, turn off the Northern Hwy 20 miles from Belize City at a junction signed ‘Altun Ha, ’ then drive 11.5 miles along the paved but narrow and often potholed Old Northern Hwy to Lucky Strike village, where a better paved road heads off west to Altun Ha (2.4 miles).

Buses to Maskall, four times daily from the main bus station in Belize City, will drop you at Lucky Strike. Heading back to the city, buses leave Maskall at 5:30am, 6am, 6:30am and 7am, passing through Lucky Strike 20 to 30 minutes later. Traffic along the jungle-lined Old Northern Hwy tends to be light, so if you’re hitchhiking prepare to wait.
