The remains of these once-mighty states are sprinkled throughout the country and are prime for exploration. Lamanai is one of the biggest and best excavated Maya areas in northern Belize; with Cuello and Cerro Maya archaeological sites. Further south, Xunantunich is famous for the appearance of a beautiful statuesque Maya maiden and the well-known Caracol - the ancient urban centre. They all combine history and nature and the adventurous can descend deep into natural caves to see where the Maya performed rituals and made sacrifices to their gods. At the same time, curious climbers can explore excavated tombs and examine intricate hieroglyphs. Finally, one of the most impressive experiences is to mount these tall stone temples, which often yield to 360-degree breathtaking jungle views.
