XUNANTUNICH – pronounced shoo-nan-tu-nich means “Maiden of the Rock”. It gets its name from a legendary folktale about the ghost of a woman who as locals have it inhabited the sacred grounds as far back as the late 1800’s. A classic period (300 – 900AD) ceremonial center located just a stone’s throw away from San Ignacio in the beautiful Maya village of San Jose Succotz makes this one of the most accessible Maya Temples in the area. Xunantunich boasts Belize’s second largest Maya structures named El Castillo (the castle) standing 130 feet and offering an astonishing panoramic view of the Maya Mountains. To get to the site one must cross the Mopan River by a hand cranked ferry, which then gives us access to the one mile ascent into one of Belize’s most popular sites. Here you will find yourself immersed in pristine jungle surroundings, home of howler monkeys, spider monkeys, birds and iguanas. While exploring along with your guide, you will learn about the history of this site and the Maya civilization that once inhabited it.

The Xunantunich (Maiden of the Rock) maya site is located about 1 kilometer from the quaint Mopan Maya village of San Jose Succotz. You can go there by bus or taxi, cross on a ferry and walk or taxi up to the Site. There is a lovely view of the canopy from the tall ceremonial building. Also, you can get a nice variety of good local foods for lunch at Benny's Restaurant, in the village. Once it is not flooded, you can swim in the clean fresh flowing waters of the Mopan River, so don't forget your swim suit.
