Sitting atop Xunantunich, Belize

It’s a long way up at Kat Witz aka Xunantunich, the more than three-thousand-year-old Mayan center near the Guatemala border with Belize. At one point this 130-foot wonder was painted bright red and covered in fool’s gold to sparkle in the rising sun. What a magnificent sight that must have been!

Today, the best sights can be found at the top where the verdant jungles of Belize stretch as far as the eye can see.

Wish you were here? Find yourself a hammock in the jungle at Amber Sunset Resort nearby.
