Maya mountains and jungle: Visit Caracol Mayan ruins

Visit Us

Visit Caracol Mayan ruins

The impressive Mayan city of Caracol was once the nerve centre of ancient life in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, reaching its heyday about 1,000 years before the arrival of the Spanish. Amazingly, with a ground area of nearly 200 square kilometres, its extent is much greater than that of modern-day Belize City.

Evoking the classic image of a lost city swathed in rainforest, the ruins jut through the surrounding greenery. You can climb the towering pyramids and temples for mesmerising views. Accompanying you as you explore the site will be an expert guide, whose insights help to bring to life ancient scenes of trade, governance and ceremony in this important and influential ancient city.
