"Iguanas!" Top 5 Page for this destination Mayan Ruins: Xunantunich Tip by Aliseeya

Mayan Ruins: Xunantunich, Belize: 14 reviews and 23 photos


In order to reach Xunantunich, you must cross the Mopan River via a very short ferry ride (very short). All along the river banks there are TONS of iguanas everywhere, and they'll let you get quite close to them. I tried to take a picture with one, but backed out when it started making weird noises...so this is the best pic I got!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
