Xunantunich & Macal River Canoeing
Explore western Belize on this tour with two distinct activities that combine, culture, archeology and natural history into one amazing day. Enjoy a morning of canoeing on the Macal River with a naturalist guide spotting wildlife such as Iguanas, kingfishers and cormorants along the way. Canoeing is followed by lunch at a local restaurant where you can sample some Belizean food. In the afternoon, cross the Mopan River via a hand winched ferry at the Maya village of San Jose Succotz for a visit to Xunantunich, Belize’s most accessible Maya site of significance. The site’s dominant structure, El Castillo, rises 130 feet above the jungle floor, offering superb views of western Belize, with forest stretching out all around and the rest of the ancient city mapped out beneath you. This popular tour is fun for all. (If you do this tour on Saturday, ‘market day’ in San Ignacio, you will also have time to explore the market.)
