Xunantunich and Belize Zoo

Guide to xunantunich and Belize zoo. Your adventure begins as you drive from Belize City on the Western Highway heading for the wildlife habitat known as The Belize Zoo. The Zoo was created as a sanctuary for the country's indigenous species and is now home for an impressive array of large cats, primates, reptiles and birds. A visit to the zoo gives you the opportunity to see Belize's amazing wildlife in one location.



Xunantunich (Maya for "Maiden of the Rock") sits just inside the Western border of Belize to nearby Guatemala. Before reaching the entrance of this ancient city, your party will board a 19th century hand-cranked ferry which takes you across the Mopan River during which there is regular sighting of huge green iguanas. A short shuttle ride from the ferry brings you to the entrance of Xunantunich which is located on one of the highest plateaus in the area. 

After restroom break your group meets at the Visitor's Center for a historical presentation. During your archeological walk you will be looking out for birds and howler monkeys, and your guide will be pointing out interesting and important trees and plants (Copal, Ramon, Cotton, Allspice) which played a major role, both medicinally and as a food source, to the Maya in ancient times. 

Your walk back in time will include viewing of original carved monuments (stellae) which depict Maya rulers and warriors in their full regalia, as well as residential palaces for Maya elites. 

The highlight of your Maya exploration brings you to "El Castillo," the tallest of the temples at this site which is 130 feet from ground level. About half way up the temple you get to appreciate an astronomical carving unique to Xunantunich, depicting Maya gods that was discovered in the 1950s.

Xunantunich and Cave Tubing From San Pedro

My family was in San Pedro, Beliz for a wedding last week. As you know weddings are about love and party. Booking a combination of cave tubing, zipline, and xunantunich was another fun party. 14 out of our family of 42 joined in on the tour. We took our cooler with local beers and snacks. We drove to the xunantunich mayan ruins first. It was a beauty. Spent around an hour at the ruins and drove to the caves. We decided on the zip line before the caves. Wow! Zipping over that river had me screaming. After the zip line we were given a life vest, headlamp, and a inner tube. We hiked for a few minutes to the entrance of the caves. Our tour guide hooked us up together and down the river we went. This was relaxing and refreshing. He towed us through the caves as he explained the history to us. We did about 10 minutes open river tubing until we got to where we started. This was where the cave tubing ended. We then got into some dry clothes and had rice and beans for lunch. Lunch was well prepared.
After lunch we hang out at the park for a while drinking our local beers. After a while be board the van and drove back to Belize City. We were dropped off back at the water taxi. Every one had fun on this tour. We did all three tours without being rushed through them. Our driver cruised with us. There was no speeding. This is top of the line services and It was a private tour.
So, thank you guys for giving my family a fun day.

Highly recommended

Paula
