Placencia, Belize Guided Tours
Take a road-trip from Placencia Village to one of the most interesting natural formations in western Belize: Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave . This is an all-day adventure that requires a good amount of physical fitness — you’ll hike, swim, and crawl to explore the depths of this cave. Once you clamber into the cave’s dark interior, it’s not hard to imagine it as the ideal location for dark rituals.
Visit the Maya Ruin site of Lubaantun and then hike to the caves of Blue Creek. Located in the remote south of Belize is a magical 1300 year old Mayan ruin that is just waiting to share its story with you. Step into the past and imagine coming here as an early explorer, hacking your way through the jungle to the crumbling steps.
This tour will bring you to the top of a Maya temple, and then to the entrance of the Maya underworld. The temple is inside the Maya city of Xunantunich, which is located near the border of Guatemala. Its name translates to “Maiden of the Rock.” After you ascend the walls of its temple, you’ll continue the tour to the Cave Branch River, where you’ll follow the river into a series of caves that had intense spiritual significance for the Maya.
