We had a great time visiting Xunantunich (stone lady) with One of GOmaya tour guides Pedro. I enjoyed learning about the Mayan’s King history and climbing to the very top! My friends were afraid of heights so they didn’t go as high as I did but it was worth every moment!!

If you like history, you'll love the Xunantunich Mayan ruins. For being centuries old, they are very well preserved. I loved climbing to the top of the highest ruin and looking out over the surrounding countryside - although not for the faint of heart.

This company is fantastic. They handled our ATM cave tour, our tour of the Ruins and our transportation to and from the airport. Everything was easy and super friendly. Ask for Cisco and Jam Jam (tour guides). I'm so glad I used them.

Francisco was knowledgeable and fun, and we had the best time. What a marvelous site. Cisco had a lot of stories about how Belize handles the archaeological digs, and what we may still learn. Lots of stuff to climb, if that's your thing. The hospitality in Belize is top notch.
