Xunantunich ‘Stone Woman’. This site is composed of six major plazas and surrounded by more than twenty five temples. The most prominent structure located at the south end of the site is the pyramid ‘El Castillo”, which rises 130 feet high above the plaza. ‘El Castillo’, was the tallest man-made structure in all of Belize until the discovery of ‘Canaa’ at Caracol. A popular feature on ‘El Castillo’, is the reconstructed frieze on the east side of the lower temple.

Your trip to Xunantunich is a full day adventure, leaving San Pedro early morning and returning in the evening.
