Belize has many Maya archaeological sites to visit and this one is the most popular! You drive through the scenic valleys and mountains of Belize before getting to the western side of Belize. Before reaching Xunantunich, you get to cross the Macal River on a hand-cranked ferry! We will meet our knowledgeable, licensed guide for this stunning archaeological site which has several plazas and a large selection of classic period structures. Those ambitious enough to hike to the top of El Castillo, the tallest structure on the site, will be rewarded with panoramic views of both Belize and Guatemala.
After the guided tour, we will cross the river again and have lunch at a fantastic restaurant before heading back to the beach. This is a full day tour or about 8 hours.
