After a shuttle ride to San Pedro Town and a 15-minute flight to Belize City from the San Pedro Ambergris Caye Airstrip, enjoy a drive along the Western Highway to the Belize Zoo. After you arrive at this wildlife sanctuary, your guide will help you spot native animals in natural-like habitats, including five species of rainforest wildcat, plus primates, reptiles and more than 500 types of tropical bird.
Afterward, ride a short distance across the emerald green Mopan River by wooden ferry; the interesting hand-crank technology dates back to the 19th century. Keep an eye out for the huge green iguanas that sun themselves on the forested bank and scamper under the foliage.
When you disembark on the opposite shore, take a short shuttle ride to the entrance of Xunantunich (Maya for ‘Maiden of the Rock’). Located on one of the highest plateaus of the Cayo District, this ancient Mayan site is just .6 mile (1 km) east of the Guatemalan border and includes six plazas and more than 25 temples.
First, gather at the Visitor Center to hear a bit about the region’s history. Then, take an archeological walk back in time to the pyramid ruins of Xunantunich. Along the way, your guide will point out many tropical birds, howler monkeys and interesting flora such as the cotton trees and allspice plants, which the ancient Maya used as both food and medicine.
Inside the ancient city, visit residential palaces for Mayan royalty. Then, start your climb up the winding stone steps of spectacular El Castillo (The Castle). Rising 130 feet (39.6 meters), it’s the second-tallest structure in Belize.
View the stucco frieze that once wrapped around its entire perimeter, and admire the detailed, astronomical carvings depicting Mayan gods, rulers and warriors in full regalia. Continue to the temple’s peak to enjoy the stunning panorama, including the Belize River Valley and nearby Guatemala.
After your descent, relax at a local Belizean restaurant and enjoy lunch. Finally, board the coach for transport back to Belize City for your return flight to Ambergris Caye.
