Lunch was served by beautiful Mayan ladies dressed in white dresses with bright floral accents. The dishes were typical of the Latin culture.
|Salbutes stuffed with pico de gallo, cabbage, and chicken.|

|Chicken soup with cabbage and potatoes.|
|We made the steep, but short, climb to the top of "El Castillo." This vantage point provides a breathtaking, 360 degree, panoramic view over the jungle canopy of the Macal, Mopan and Belize River valleys, as well as a vast area of the Guatemalan Peten District, which is only a few miles away. You will also get a close look at the restored portions of two unique stucco friezes, which appear on the east and west sides of the upper portion of the pyramid.|
|Located in the Cayo District in western Belize, Xunantunich is easily accessible. Most of the lodging facilities in the area offer day trips to the site, which is very popular with all tourists in the region.|
