Whilst Europe was deep in the "Dark Ages", the inhospitable and hostile jungles of Central America were being transformed into the home of one of the World's great civilisations. Temples, Pyramids and Palaces were built by peasant farmers and slaves without the benefit of beasts of burden or even the wheel. These were painted in the sacred colours of the Maya; red, blue, yellow and green and were ruled over by immensely powerful Kings who were regarded as living Gods by their subjects.

You will explore the realms of the mysterious Maya people as you visit Belize's favourite ancient Mayan site in the company of an expert guide. Xunantunich is reached by crossing the Mopan River by hand-cranked ferry. After the guided tour there will be time to explore and climb the ruins which are great for panoramic photographs.
