Caracol is the single largest archeological site in Belize, and one of the biggest Mayan structures in the world. Discovered in 1938 by loggers, the Classic Period complex covers over 30mi (48km) squared of land, including over 35,000 structures, five plazas, and some of the most beautiful jungle in Central America. 

Occupied as early as 1200 BC, dozens of hieroglyphic texts have been discovered in the ancient city, carved into altars, walls, facades, capstones, and ball-court-markers. Rich in tropical wildlife, learn about the Mayan civilization in one of the most astonishing cities known to modern man. 

Visiting Caracol is an exercise in discovery: as you walk through the amazing Caana pyramid, the largest in the complex, rising 140ft (420m) above ground, experience the magnificence of the Mayan architectural prowess and ability. From the central acropolis to the ball courts to the astronomic observatory, you are sure to be amazed.
