Discover Maya Ruins via a Tour to Caracol Belize & Rio Frio Cave

Caracol Belize, being a major and dominant site in Mayan history, is an expansive city covering nearly 6 square miles and rivaling the ancient metropolis of Tikal in size, power and riches. Set high on the Vaca Plateau and in the heart of the Chiquibul Forest Reserve near the Guatemalan border, Caracol Belize is accessed through the Mountain Pine Ridge – a beautiful area with flowing rivers and hidden limestone caves.

At this sprawling archaeological site, not only will you have the chance to learn about the anthropology, archaeology as well as flora and fauna of the area (including rare and endangered wildlife such as Keel-billed Motmots, Tapirs and Jaguars), you will also be able to catch a glimpse of howler monkeys in action.

Then be prepared to be wowed by the engineering and architectural sophistication of the Mayan people as you climb the temple pyramid structure of the Sky Temple, also known as “Caana” – the highest man-made building in Belize to this day. Once at the top, not only will you get impressive panoramic views of Belize, you can even see neighboring Guatemala as well!

Cap off the trip with drinks, a picnic lunch and a visit to the Rio Frio Cave, which has the largest entrance of any cave in Belize.
