Today we head back to Honduras after three full days in Belize. We were required to leave Honduras for 72 hours in order to renew our government visas.
Yesterday, we went on a tour of some sites in Belize with Mike’s sister and brother-in-law. We went to Xunantunich, a Mayan city that dates back to the time of Christ. At 130 feet tall, the Mayan pyramid is the second tallest structure in Belize.
After that we floated along a river through a long, dark series of caves cut through limestone. These caves were considered Hell by the ancient Mayans. These nine interconnected caves were once used for sacrifices, worship and blood letting.
Pretty cool stuff.
