"Get Junglized" in Belize at the Maruba Jungle & Spa Resort. Maruba Jungle Resort is in the heart of the Rainforest, located about 40 miles north of Belize City on the Old Northern Highway.
Maruba is in the middle of Belize’s eastern flatland forest, north of the Maskall Village. What better way to get there than by a fun and exciting sight-seeing helicopter transfer to Maruba Jungle Resort.
As you depart from the Belize International Airport sit back and allow yourself to take in the picture perfect view of the mainland as you soar over lagoons, creeks and villages. Your flight first takes you from the International Airport heading North over the Salt Creek Estate which is 44 square miles (it is said there are 14 unexcavated Maya sites in the estate). Moving along, you will fly over the Old Northern Highway which was the main highway in the British Honduras time.
The flight heads over to the Altun Ha Maya Ruins located 31 miles north of Belize City. Altun Ha means Water of the Rock. It was here that the largest carved jade object in the whole Maya area, a Jade Head, was found. This Jade Head represents the Sun God, Kinich Ahau, and can be seen in the corner of every Belizean banknote.
Altun Ha was a major ceremonial center during the Classic Period (250-900 A.D) and functioned as a vital trading center linking the Caribbean shores with other Maya centers. Enjoy the view as you soar around this peaceful and enchanted land of the Maya’s. This site is one of the most visited Mayan Site in Belize.
Continuing on the journey, you will fly over a rainforest canopy that sweeps across Northern Belize and not further along you will fly over Maskall Village which is located by the Northern River. Your flight then heads northwest as it glides over the lush unspoiled Rainforest before arriving to your final destination – Maruba Jungle Resort.
