Description
Xunantunich is Mayan ceremonial center sitting at the peak of a mountain just a bit less than a mile from the Mopan River, which has to be crossed on a hand-cranked ferry to continue the journey to the ruins. This Mayan site consists of the main structure (El Castillo) rising over 130 feet above the plaza level offering a birds-eye view of the entire valley, towns and the bordering town of Melchor De Mencos, Peten, Guatemala. In this structure, there are two temples, one of them features a mask of what appears to be the sun god and next to it are some astronomic figures that represent Venus. At the site, you can also find a gift shop and a small museum.

The tour offers a complimentary safe transfer on one of the Water Taxi ferry to Belize City, an hour and 30 minutes ride where you will journey along Caye Caulker, Caye Chapel, mangroves and get a glimpse of St. George’s Caye before arriving the commercial City of Belize where you will meet your tour guide. From there you board their private vehicle where you begin your journey on the George Price Highway, a scenic journey where you can enjoy the beautiful Belize landscape. Upon arriving at the village of Succotz you will get off the highway to cross the river on the hand-cranked ferry, where you will are taken uphill on your vehicle to the beautiful courtyard of Xunantunich.
