Description

Xunantunich

Stone Maiden

The current name of this ancient Maya site means STONE MAIDEN and there are many local accounts of a princess’s appearance. Archeologists consider it a regional capital with political ties to several other major sites in Guatemala and Belize. From the top of the tallest temple, the beautiful jungle and Mopan River valley can be viewed. Of special interest at the site, are the famous restorations of two finely carved ancient astronomical frieze, a historical museum and several well-preserved stelae of the former rulers.

This half day tour can be combined with several other nearby destinations such as Cahal Pech, El Pilar,  a Guatemalan border Market/Shopping tour or River Tubing.
