Experience two exciting sites few have ever visited on this wonderful full day tour: Dzibanche with its pyramids and landscaped grounds, and the multi-leveled Mayan city of Kohunlich, surrounded by magnificent cahoon palms.
Boarding your coach at the pier, you will travel nearly 2 1/2 hours with your guide toward the border of Belize where you will explore first-hand the ancient dwellings of Dzibanche. Once known for its beautiful pottery and splendid temples hidden within the jungle, this once ruling city will surely captivate your imagination. Here, you will have the opportunity to climb the tallest temple to get a view of the "Temple of the Owls" and the "Temple of the Captives" before it's time to head off to famous Kohunlich.
The recently excavated archeological site of Kohunlich is named after the giant cahoon palm trees that inhabit the immense site. For those who are up to the challenge, you can climb the high temple and see up-close the unique, sculpted masks that run up the front stairway.
After a visit of just over 1-hour, you will re-board your coach and travel to the Lagoon Club for a tasty lunch of regional favorites before returning to the pier.
