Belize: Xunantunich




Today we took a collectivo to Xunantunich ruins just outside of San Ignacio. Since we had to get off at a random place on the road it was great that everyone around us spoke English. Once we got off the bus we took the ferry/bridge/floating platform (think pulley system) across the river and walked about thirty minutes to the entrance gates. The trip took a bit longer then expected but it was well worth it. Another public transportation win and the ruins where the best yet. The view from the largest ruin was incredible, looking out to Guatemala. The grounds were well kept and we were really the only ones there exploring. On the way down we saw some monkeys playing in the trees.
