FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Book a tour guide so you won't have to walk a mile to the site from the ferry.
  • More than 25 temples and palaces rise in six plazas and the site is still under excavation. The highlight: El Castillo, the Castle, rises a majestic 130 feet, making the pyramid the second tallest man-made structure in Belize.
