We recently stopped in to Belize with the Carnival Glory on September 12th, 2018. The day started over cast at the coast as we tendered from the ship to the port. After we reached port shopping plaza, we got in line, and were led directly...More
This place is awesome. Visited for several hours today- during which it rained 50% of the time making the place appear magical. The ruins are high with beautiful views & made for exploring. Recommend getting a tour guide at the ferry entrance. The ferry (unique)...More
Luis Portillo took three of us on a day tour to Xunantunich. I had looked it up before we went, but was still not prepared for how large and complex the site is. It is a national park and there are active archeological digs in...More
Words and pictures do not do it justice. We decided not to get a tour guide since we rented a vehicle and drove ourselves from Plascencia. The three and a half hour drive was well worth it. Once we crossed the hand cranked ferry we...More
We went here with a guide, which really enhanced the experience as he explained a lot about Mayan beliefs to us. It’s a great site with a very tall temple you can climb. You can see views of much of Belize as well as the...More
Our taxi driver found us a local guide who did a good job for us. The guide brought out so much more than we would have gotten out of it otherwise. Amazing that you can still climb all over it. Impressive territorial views. Really is...More
I can't believe there are too many ruin locations better than this one. We had guides, who were very knowledgeable. The hike to the top of the ruin gave us a 360 degree view of the country side.. Could see into Guatemala, and for miles...More
Because we were staying at Caves Branch near Belmopan, we didn't want to drive all of the way to the Tikal ruins in Guatemala. It was too much for us in one day, so we opted for the Xunantunich ruins (1.5 hrs one way to...More
This is an amazing site. Relatively easy to get to. We organised a tour through the San Ignacio Hotel & Resort. This was expensive, but you can do it far cheaper by making your own way there by taxi, and getting a tour guide organised...More
We were staying in Hopkins and booked the trip to the ruins through our resort (Belezian Dreams, highly recommended). We ended up being the only two people on the tour and had an amazing time!
At first we were a little put off by the...More

I don’t think it opens till 8:00 & you have to take a ferry across a river to enter. However if your adventurous have a taxi drop u off there then swim across. From there it’s probably a 20 min hike to the ruins just follow the road. There’s no gate you can walk right in. However there can be lots of fog in the morning in the jungle mountains there. We were the 1st there a few weeks ago at 8:00 and got to see the sun rise over the pyramid but not sun rise.
