Xunantunich Mayan Ruins Tour

Take this tour to see the site that the Maya called “Stone Woman.” You’ll reach Xunantunich via a ferry ride down the Mopan River, followed by a short hike through the jungle. Xunantunich spreads out over a couple of miles, but the central site is fairly compact.

For most of the tour you’ll admire the remains of El Castillo, the tall, central temple that dominated the city. El Castillo served as a religious site—the faces carved into one of the temples depict the gods of the sun and Venus, reflecting the Maya’s astrological religion. You have the option to climb the stepped faced of the temple if you’re feeling adventurous. High up on the steps you’ll have the chance to do some bird watching.
