Re: Altun Ha
I would skip Altun Ha on the way and maybe hit it on the way back to the airport if anything. It's been a long time since I've been out the Maskall Road, but I'd say an hour from BZE to Altun Ha(the most mosquitoey ruin in my experience). There's not really any place to eat lunch "on the way" and it would be better to get to San Ignacio well before dark on your first day driving in Belize. I'd head up the northern highway and take the bypass over to the western highway to Hattieville. Stop for lunch at Cheers which is at mile 31 on the western highway. Good food, fun vibe, and clean bathrooms. You will have passed the zoo when you get there but you could go back to the zoo for a couple of hours if you are set on doing something that first afternoon. You are still about an hour and a half from San Ignacio at Cheers. Hope this helps.
