Off Site Experiences

Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM)

The Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave is one of Belize’s most popular Mayan caves, rated #1 by National Geographic for Central America. This archaeological site contains skeletal remains, ceramics, and stoneware left behind by the ancient Maya during their ceremonies.

Tikal

Tikal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the largest and best understood ancient lowland Mayan cities. Located in the Petén Basin of Guatemala and containing numerous excavated temples and palace ruins, archaeologists believe that some of the architecture dates to the 4th century BC.

Xunantunich

Xunantunich, also known as the “Maiden of the Rock,” is the second tallest Mayan ruin in Belize. It stands 130 feet high to give a panoramic view of the Cayo District, nearby Guatemala, and the Mopan River.

Lamanai

Lamanai means “submerged crocodile” in the Maya language and it is also the name of the third largest, and possibly the most interesting archaeological site in Belize.

Birding

For nearly three decades Chan Chich Lodge has been considered one of the best properties in the world for birding. Due to its privileged location, surrounded by nearly half a million acres of conservation land, the diversity of species is exceptional.
