Itinerary Details

Xunantunich, which means “Stone Lady” in Mayan language, is one of the many impressive ancient Mayan sites in Belize. To reach these ruins, you will travel with your guide in a hand-cranked ferry across the Mopan River. Xunantunich sits atop a stunning green hilltop with views of nearby border town, Benque Viejo del Carmen, and Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala. Enjoy a half-day climbing the pyramids, some of which were recently excavated.  Learn more about Mayan history in the museum, including how the name of the ruins changed over time. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the howler monkeys that live in the forest canopies at the site, or a wish willy (black iguana) that can be spotted trying to blend in to the rock of the pyramids. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the site, or travel back across the river to try some yummy local cuisine...
