“Get Junglized” in Belize at Maruba Resort Jungle Spa. Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is a hip boutique spa in the heart of the Rainforest, located about 40 miles north of Belize City on the Historic Pan American Highway, also known as the Old Northern Highway, seemingly in the middle of Belize’s eastern flatland forest, 1.5 miles north of Maskall Village. What better way than to get here than a fun and exciting helicopter transfer to Maruba Resort Jungle Spa.
As you depart from the Belize Phillip Goldson 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 Phillip Goldson 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 historic Pan American Highway(better known as the Old Northern Highway) which was the main highway in the British Honduras time.
The flight heads over to Altyn Ha Maya Ruins located 31 miles north of Belize City. Altun Ha means water of the rock. It was at Altun Ha that the largest carved jade object in the whole Maya area, the Jade Head, was found. The 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 (250-900A.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 enriched land of the Maya’s. This site is one of the most visited Mayan Sites 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. Maskall Village has a population of about 1300 and, although one of the oldest village, more than half of its population is under the age of 18.
Your flight then heads northwest as it glides over the lush unspoiled Rainforest before arriving at your final destination – Maruba Resort Jungle Spa, Belize.
