Caracol is the largest known Maya site in Belize. Still under excavation, the site has several plazas and two ball courts so far. The Sky Palace, Caracol's largest pyramid, rises 143 feet above the jungle, making this the tallest man-made structure in Belize. Caracol is difficult to reach as it is accessed by dirt roads which are typically not usuable in the rainy season. It's best to go with a licensed tour company.
