  • It's hard to get to - your best bet might be AyinHa adventures unless you're coming from the north, as that lets you bypass hours of driving in favour of a relatively quick and pleasant boat...

  • Historically rich Mayan site. There are 3 large ruins that really impressed our family. One round is about 150 feet high. You are able to climb the ruins but when we arrived the largest ruins public access broke and we were sadly unable to climb it. Although it took an hour shuttle ride and an hour boat ride from Belize City one way, it was hands down totally worth visiting!
  • Very interesting tour. We had a great guide who told us plenty about the ruins. We were able to climb to the top of one of the temples on modern stairs around the back. It’s a big city that hasn’t been fully explored and is only partially open to tourism. We reached it by water, but I’m not sure if that’s the only way to get there. We even saw howler monkeys resting in the heat.
