Take a scenic drive along the Hummingbird and Western Highways, before exploring the Mayan ruin of Xunantunich (pronounced Shu-nan-tu-nitch), or Stone Maiden. Located near the Guatemalan border, a hand-cranked ferry will take you across the Belize River to this major ceremonial center, situated high on a limestone ridge, with a panoramic view of the Cayo District. The main pyramid, El Castillo, has detailed stucco friezes and steps that you can climb all way to the top. The tour guide will stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and you’ll get to enjoy the fresh dip at the inland Blue Hole on your way back.
