Secrets of Xunantunich Tour
English and Spanish
Xunantunich is located in western Belize, about 80 miles west of Belize City, in the Cayo District. It’s also located atop a ridge above the Mopan River, within the sight of the border with Belize and Guatemala. The site itself serves as a Maya Civic ceremonial center in the Late and Terminal Classic periods to the Belize Valley region. At this time, when the region was at its peak, nearly 200,000 people lived in Belize.
Xunantunich’s name means ‘’Stone Woman’’ in the Maya language (Mopan and Yucatec combination name), and, like many names giving to Maya archeological sites, is a modern name; the ancient name is currently unknown. The ‘’stone Woman’’ refers to the ghost of a woman claimed by several people to inhabit the site, beginning in 1892. She dressed completely in white, and has fire-red glowing eyes. She generally appears in front of ‘’El Castillo’’, ascends the stone stairs, and disappears into a stone wall.
