across, you’ve arrived. This fascinating Maya ruin is situated high on a limestone ridge and was once a major ceremonial center. It has several plazas and a large selection of classic period
Those ambitious enough to hike 130 feet to the top of El Castillo will conquer the second tallest structure in Belize and, will be rewarded with panoramic views Cayo and Guatemala.
