Highlights
  • Xunantunich’s name means “Stone Woman”
Description
Your destination Xunantunich lays some 70 miles on paved highway takes 1hour and 45min. to reach the site, east of Belize City, among the northern foothills of the Maya Mountain Range. Along the way, one gets to enjoy a detailed history of our country and the Maya Civilization while passing through the many villages along the Western Highway. This journey takes us to the twin towns of Santa Elena and San Ignacio, then onto the village of San Jose Succots where we will be crossing a river on a hand-cranked ferry.

Xunantunich’s name means “Stone Woman” in the Maya language (Mopan and Yucatec combination name), and, like many names given to Maya archaeological sites, is a modern name; the ancient name is currently unknown. The “Stone Woman” refers to the ghost of a woman claimed by several people to inhabit the site, beginning in 1892. She is dressed completely in white and has fire-red glowing eyes. She generally appears in front of “El Castillo”, ascends the stone stairs, and disappears into a stone wall.
