Belize Mayan Ruin Tours
Explore the ancient world of the Mayas through the Belize Mayan Ruin tours offered by Belizean Dreams.
Start with a 3-hour drive up the most scenic highway in Belize, as it winds its way through the Maya Mountains. You will pass many small villages as well as the nation's capital, Belmopan, and the bustling market town of San Ignacio, which sits high above the Macal River. The journey continues west and brings you within a mile of the Guatemalan border. Here you will cross the Mopan River in a hand cranked ferry to the large Mayan site known as Xunantunich (pronounced shu-nan-tu-nitch) or Stone Maiden. This fascinating ruin has several plazas and a large selection of classic period structures, it is a major ceremonial center situated high on a limestone ridge. Those ambitious enough to hike to the top of El Castillo, the tallest structure on the site, will be rewarded with panoramic views of Belize and Guatemala.
