One of the smaller structures at Xunantunich

Here's a photo of a temple on the left that is still covered by grass and straight ahead is one of the smaller temples opposite the large temple. It is pronounced like 'zoo-NAN-too-neech'.

Make sure to Climb This!

This is the largest Mayan Temple at Xunantunich. They were working on it at the time we were there. We climbed to the top and looked out... it was a bit scary cause there was nothing to keep you from falling off... just a big drop :)

I was just acting silly!

Here I am at some random rock that was at Xunantunich. It didn't have a marker to say what it was, but my friend told me to pose with it, so I did!

    These ruins look like they definitely deserve a visit! Despite that beautiful view, it does look much scarier from the top - I remember that feeling while atop Chichen Itza!!

    Great page on this out of the way place! I can really relate to your warning tip - thanks to my fear of heights I stayed WAY back from the edge when we were up on the ruins!
