Belize Maya Ruin Adventures

 

One of Belize’s most often-visited sites, the journey to Xunantunich begins with a mini-tour of Belize’s verdant landscape along the Hummingbird Highway that lands you at a vast city where pyramids, plazas and stelae tell tales of the once-great ceremonial center dominating the landscape. Climb to the summit of El Castillo, the ruin’s tallest point, for breathtaking aerial views of Belize and Guatemala. This full day tour includes lunch, transport, incidentals, a guide and all of the memories you can make.

Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit tours
 

This full day adventure starts with a stop at the Belize Spice Farm and Botanical Garden and then continues to the Maya Mountain foothills where the Ni Li Punit site awaits. Study mysterious stelae inscriptions before continuing on to Lubaantun, the largest ruin of its kind in southern Belize. You’ll spot huge differences between this ruin and architecture at Xunantunich and Nim Li Punit: No mortar was used to secure the limestone blocks and your tour guide can fill you in on how this was done. Transport, lunch and fun are included during this full day of exploration.
