Xunantunich Maya Ruin and Horseback Riding

 

Xunantunich Maya Ruin and Horseback Riding

 

Even on the shortest trips to Belize, this is a must-see. Xunantunich is a national treasure that fills its visitors with a sense of time travel. If that’s not enough, why not saddle up a horse and ride into the shadow of this Mayan temple? You’ll meet your guide at the departure site for a basic safety and orientation briefing.  Our horses are well trained, and our guide will lead the way as you ride the well-maintained trails and the winding path along the Mopan River that runs through the village of San Jose Succotz. You’re hit with how green and lush everything is. Some visitors might get to see a group of women doing laundry in the River while their children swim nearby.

 

Local souvenirs, hammocks, and blankets are available from the many vendors waiting alongside the River where you board the hand-cranked ferry that has carried many thousands to and from the calm beauty of this Maya Temple. Here, you’ll dismount your horse, and the journey to Xunantunich begins on the other bank of the River.

 

The ruin of Xunantunich (stone woman) offers many opportunities for amazing selfies and group photos. The views from the top of the castle are spectacular, and they stretch for miles. The wide-open spaces of this park have been used for weddings, proposals, and even films. Lush rainforest surrounds the temples, whose trees may bloom vibrant red, yellow, orange, or pink in season. Take along a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, as well as an open heart to experience simplicity and experience another world for a few hours.

A few films and telenovelas have been filmed in its wide-open spaces, as well as proposals and weddings. The temples are nestled between lush rainforests whose trees may bloom vibrant red, yellow, orange, or pink in season.
