Experience The Xunantunich Maya temples
Once a major ceremonial center, it is composed of five main plazas, surrounded by more than 25 temples and palaces, three of which have been extensively excavated.

Discover Belize for yourself!
Located on a natural limestone ridge, the site provides panoramic views of the hilly Cayo Distric.
The Xunantunich Maya temples can only be accessed by a 19th century old hand-cranked ferry, which crosses the Mopan River. Xunantunich flourished during the Classic-period and appears to have survived the Maya “collapse” and remained an important population center until around AD 1000.
The site boasts one of the most impressive structures in Belize: El Castillo – a 130ft pyramid that dominates the landscape. A steep, but short climb to the top is recommended as this vantage point provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding Mopan and Belize River valleys, dense jungles as far as the eyes can see and Belize’s Maya Mountains.
