2nd Day • Belize City/Xunantunich/ San Ignacio
This morning we depart Belize City via the Western Highway to the Belize Zoo. The zoo was begun in 1983 when a small group of Belizean animals, once used as movie stars for natural history films, were left without financial support for their maintenance. As a result of this situation, their caretaker then changed her title to zoo director, and started a small zoo. Today, the zoo is home to more than a hundred species of native Belizean animals including many endangered species. Continue to San Ignacio, hugging the banks of the Macal River. Quaint shops, restaurants, inns and houses dot the surrounding hillside in this frontier-like town. After lunch tour to Xunantunich Mayan Ruin. This major ceremonial center is located on a natural limestone ridge, providing a panoramic view of the Cayo District. The largest pyramid, "El Castillo", has been partially excavated and explored, and bears a remarkable stucco frieze on the east side of the A-6 structure. Three carved stelae found at the site are on display in the plaza. Transfer to the charming Crystal Paradise Resort for check-in, dinner and overnight. Meals BLD
