Head inland and explore the ancient Maya sites of Belize.
Cahal Pech & Xunantunich
Enjoy the views during the three-hour drive down the Hummingbird Highway. The reward for climbing to the top of El Castillo is a spectacular view of the Cayo District and Petén Guatemala.
Actun Tunichil Muknal
Travel back in time using the pathways of the ancient Maya into their underworld. You’ll view calcified remains of human sacrifice victims, pottery broken to release the spirit within, eerie carvings that cast shadows of the “Moon Goddess”, and dozens of artifacts used in mysterious rituals.
Nim Li Punit & Lubaantun
The Nim Li Punit Maya Site is named for a carving found on the longest of the site’s twenty-six stone monuments, or stelae. Lubaantun is the largest Maya site in Southern Belize.
