Xunantunich and Inland Blue Hole

Xunantunich was the first ruin site in Belize to be opened to the public when the road and a ferry were built, in 1954. The most prominent structure is the pyramid "El Castillo" which was the tallest man-made structure in all of Belize until the discovery of Caana at Caracol. ACTIVITY LEVEL: MODERATE-AVERAGE PHYSICAL CONDITION FOR ALL AGES

Located in the Cayo District across the Mopan River in Western Belize, Xunantunich can only be accessed by a ferry. Xunantunich which means "Stone Woman" is derived from a combination of Mopan and Yucatec Mayan words. This awe inspiring tour provides cultural history and breath taking views of Belize as well as our neighboring country Guatemala.
Although a long drive from where we are, this scenic outing takes you on the outskirt of the Mayan Mountain Range and through different villages and communities.
As the vegetation changes you will notice the structure of homes changes as well as the ethnicity of the people. You can truly get a glimpse of the Belizean people going about on their day to day life.
After lunch enjoy a swim in the Blue Hole and/or enter the dark ancient mystery of St Herman's Cave. The Inland Blue Hole was formed by the collapse of an underground limestone cave.
