One of the places we went to on our honeymoon was Xunantunich, or as Alan likes to call it, Tuna Sandwich.
Xunantunich is the site of Mayan ruins in Belize on the border with Guatemala and it was my favorite shore excursion we took on our cruise. Ever since I saw The Second Voyage of the Mimi in elementary school where they go to Mayan ruins, I have wanted to see them myself. You better believe I was so excited to finally get to see some!
The ruins are located on a hill top and to get there we had to take a boat across a river then climb up the hill.
It was also my first real experience in a jungle and it was awesome. Reminded me of something out of Indiana Jones.
I loved exploring the ruins, probably my favorite part was getting to climb to the top of the pyramid. The views were fantastic!
I'm afraid of heights and climbing down the pyramid was definitely scary. You better believe I scooted down on my butt!
Just look at these friezes. Beautiful!
Wanna play ball?
Xunantunich is a smaller site and not as well known as Copan or Chichen Itza. What I would give to see them someday too!
