Located in the village of San Jose Succotz, Xunantunich "maiden of the rock", is one of the most popular sites in Belize. We start off at the Mopan River where we cross the river via ... morea hand-cranked ferry and ride up hill for a mile on paved road. This was a major ceremonial center during the Classic Period. The center is composed of six major plazas surrounded by more than 25 temples and palaces. The site is a late classic period 600 AD to 900 AD which also was the border line influence of El Naranjo- a large ceremonial site over in Guatemala. The large pyramid, “El Castillo”, is well known for the frieze or band of stucco decoration which at one time extended around the entire temple. El Castillo rises l30 feet above the main plaza; is the second tallest structure in Belize and offers an impressive panoramic view of the Mopan River valley, the border town of Benque Viejo (Belize) and neighbouring Melchor de Mencos (Guatemala). Just being here and appreciating this view makes it totally worth the effort!

This is an amazing tour that combines single track, double track and the Maya site of Xunantunich. The challenge starts at the outskirts of San Jose Succotz Village; this portion being ... moreon single track and is the most rugged part of the ride. We pedal on this hilly terrain dodging tree branches and jumping tree roots. This part of the ride is a bit more technical and rugged; especially when going downhill-staying on the bike is a challenge. After this we move to a feeder road; a double track ride in a more open area where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the mountains around the area. The ride continues through the open pasture and through semi deciduous forest.to the beautiful river bank where a picturesque single track leads us to the village of San Jose Succotz. Here we cross the Mopan River on a ferry and ride up hill for a mile on paved road to the Maya Site of Xunantunich, which has the second tallest structure in Belize “El Castillo”. The view from atop is magnificent and worth the effort!
