One of the best ruin complexes I visited during my trip - and I've visited at least 5 of them. It is well maintained, peaceful and beautiful. It took some effort to get there but the road was really pretty.
This is an amazing site. The view from the top of the main pyramid cannot be described, it has to be experienced. During the climb to the top the tour guide gave very detailed explanations of the rooms and carvings that are seen. The site...More
After you cross the river on a hand operated ferry you will be drawn into the history of the place, get many new facts about the myths and the background and will be able to climb the second highest Mayan structure excavated so far.
Can you visit without a guide? yes of course, but you will either miss a lot of stories and explanations or you spent a lot of time studying...
The whole experience starts by crossing the river on a hand-cranked ferry...the road then leads you to...More
So beautiful, gotta go on a ferry to get there, that was short and nice. Have options of getting there on horse but went there by car. Once got there and saw the ruins it was beautiful especially when you get to the top. The...More

I booked the tour a few days in advance from Roam Belize, a highly-reputable, local Belizean company, and they picked us up in Placencia, although they will pick you up anywhere you are staying on the Placencia peninsula (Maya Beach, Seine Bight, etc)...For a very fair price, they offer reliable, door-to-door transportation service, lunch, rest / bathroom stops, guided tour of park et al. I highly recommend them.
