Join us on this fantastic trip to Xunantunich and travel back to the time of the Mayan civilization. You will walk among the fascinating remains of homes and temples which formed part of this pre-Columbian culture!
We will pick you up from your hotel in San Ignacio at 8 a.m before heading to the Mopán River, about half an hour's drive away. Then we will hop on a ferry and sail along the river for about 15 minutes. On the banks, you will spot the area's main inhabitants: iguanas and bats.
We will arrive at Xunantunich, an ancient Mayan city built on the slopes of a beautiful valley, overlooking San Ignacio. For the next two hours, we will stroll among the fascinating pre-Columbian remains, discovering residential palaces, the civic center, and the ball court. You will also learn all about the social structure of the ancient Mayans.
We'll walk to the Central Plaza, where we'll find the Castle Temple, one of the largest in all of Belize! From the top, you will have a spectacular view of the Belize River and the border of Guatemala.
We hit the road again and make a stop at a local restaurant to enjoy a lunch consisting of rice, chicken, beans, and fried plantain. Then we will return to San Ignacio and accompany you back to your accommodation where the trip concludes at 2 pm.
All of our providers comply with local legislation and applicable health recommendations regarding protective material and safety to help avoid the spread of Covid-19.
