XUNANTUNICH, CAHAL PECH MAYA TEMPLES AND TROPICAL WINGS:

From Black Rock Lodge, travel to the Mayan village of San Jose Succotz on the banks of the Mopan River. Board a small hand-cranked pontoon ferry to cross the river to Xunantunich (shoo-nan-too-nitch) Maya Ruin. After exploring the site, drive a short distance to the Tropical Wings Butterfly Research Center. See over a dozen species of Belizean butterflies. Then drive to the outskirts of San Ignacio to one of the most architecturally diverse Maya Ruins in Belize: Cahal Pech (ka-hall pet-ch). Climb though the ruins, see examples of the “corbelled” arch (the Maya’s version of the Roman arch), and view 2,000 year old red plaster still intact on the walls.
Tour duration: 3/4 day (does not include entrance fees or lunch).
