Our afternoon trip to the Mayan ruins at Xunantunich
This sounds cheesy and almost like I am lying but there was this strange peacefulness at Xunantunich. It was almost surreal…almost like the Mayans appreciated that we were there learning about them. It was truly an unforgettable experience climbing up and down these ruins as our guide told us about the mysteriously-advanced people who once lived there.
The silence was interrupted at one point though – by a group of howler monkeys in some trees surrounding the site.
Dinner at the popular restaurant 100 feet from our resort (Hode’s)
Even though it had only been one full day, I already felt like I was home. I could not wait to see what the the remainder of my adventure had in store for me.
