To reach the Belize Mayan ruins of Xunantunich, you cross the Mopan River on a hand cranked ferry and proceed up, up, up a steep incline to the site. The excavated temple, El Castillo, is one of the highest structures in all of Belize and boasts an awe-inspiring view, a reconstructed frieze, a number of stele, and a ball court.
The colossal Caracol Ruins are right here in the Maya Mountains or Belize! Caracol is an exciting site, 9 miles square, blessed with a number of awe inspiring temples and numerous stele. Enshrouded by Macaw and Tapir-filled forests, it is set in the heart of the Mayan "empire".
Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins & Museum
Right at the edge of San Ignacio town, the catacomb-like ruins of Cahal Pech await your visit. As the home of the family of royalty, Cahal Pech is distinct from other sites. There a small museum and native guide are available for interpretation.
Tikal in Guatemala ruled over vast areas of the ancient Mayan World. Today it is designated a "World Heritage" site and unsurpassed in both Natural History and Archaeology. This long day trip over rough roads is richly rewarded as your guide explains the breath-taking ruins and shows you the monkeys and birds. The time is all too short, but the inspiration and insights gained will stay with you a lifetime.
El Pilar Ruins
This site is one of the most recently available to the public and quite interesting. It has a causeway that continues into Guatemala. This site is located on the Bullet Tree Road about 45 minutes from San Ignacio.
