Both Xunantunich and Cahal Pech Mayan ruins are located in the west of the country. Both are filled with ancient history and stories of the Mayan culture and practices. The best part is that, as you walk through the well managed grounds and watch the sunlight as it seeps through the clouds, you look around listening to the history and imagine what once was. You can almost see history play out before your eyes. Through these Mayan ruins tours at Caves Branch you will notice that both hold really amazing histories.

Xunantunich is known as “Maiden of the Rock” and it is the second tallest Mayan ruin in the entire country of Belize. If you climb at the very top of this Mayan ruin, you will have a panoramic view of the Cayo District, part of Guatemala and the flowing Mopan River.

Some people have claimed to see the ghost of a woman dressed in white with fire-red glowing eyes in front of “El Castillo”. She climbs the stone stairs and disappears into a wall. Isn’t this intriguing?

Cahal Pech, known as “Place of The Ticks”, was once home to a Mayan Royal Family. This Mayan archaeological site is one of the oldest sites in the west of Belize. This site has pyramid temples, palaces and a ball court.

It is very interesting to know that on the grounds that you will be walking, there may have been human sacrifices and other offerings to deities associated with rain and agriculture. Several preserved organic remains and skeletal remains of adults and infants have been found.
