About Provider
Jorge De Leon, owner and operator of Lions Adventure Tours welcomes you to his humble family of tour guides.

Jorge (Lion) as he is known locally, is an advocate for conservation efforts in his region and specialize in Archaeology, ancient Maya cities and caves. Lion has been tour guiding well over 10 years in western Belize for well know establishments. During the earlier part of 2013 Lion decided it was time he ventured off on his own, so he start the company Lion Adventure Tours.

Since Lion learnt how the Maya hieroglyphs works he has passionately been trying to teach others and hopes to get his knowledge across to our generation. Today, our people can speak the language but have lost the ability to write it. He hopes to revive this lost art of writing.

Get to know Jorge personally as takes you on a tour in his all-terrain vehicle.

Lion: “Allow me to take you on an adventure, exploring the unexplored and discover the mysteries of Xibalba.
Do you have what it takes?”

This my friend is one tour experience you surely won’t forget.

Caracol (Snail) is the largest known Maya city in Belize. In AD 650, the urban area of Caracol had a radius of approximately 177 square kilometers. It boasts the tallest man-made structure ... morein the country and a dynasty that was desired and looked up upon by many, while hated and feared by others. It covered an area much larger than present-day Belize City (the largest metropolitan area in the country of Belize) and supported more than twice the modern city’s population. Caracol is a must-see, as it is one of the largest cities of the classic period and was in the middle of a power struggle with powerful cities like Tikal and Naranjo in Guatemala.

Being specialized on Maya Hieroglyphs; during our tour, you will learn about the kings of Caracol and their achievements based on the hieroglyphic evidence. A couple years ago Lion got the privilege of reporting one of the last carved monuments at Caracol. The date of this monument adds 25 years more of hieroglyphic history to this great royal lineage.

We also offer the Caracol tour combined with a refreshing stop at Rio on Pools to cool off after a long day at the site.
