Caracol is the name given to a large ancient Maya archaeological site, located in what is now the Cayo District of Belize. It is situated approximately 40 kilometres south of Xunantunich and the town of San Ignacio Cayo, and 15 kilometers away from the Macal River. It rests on the Vaca Plateau at an elevation of 500 meters above sea-level, in the foothills of the Maya Mountains. Long thought to be a tertiary center, it is now known that the site was one of the most important regional political centers of the Maya Lowlands during the Classic Period. Caracol covered approximately 200 square kilometers, covering an area much larger than present-day Belize City (the largest metropolitan area in the country) and supported more than twice the modern city's population. #caracolbelize#mayaruins#cayodistrict#belize#longclimb#beautiful#breathtaking#belizetravel#belizeadventures
The Rio Frio Cave is found inside the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, a park located in Belize's western Cayo District.
Walking up the well-maintained steps, visitors get to experience the enormous front entry cavern that measures more than 70 feet high.
Inside the main entrance, visitors can marvel at the giant stalactites that hang from the cave's roof like elegant stone chandeliers. The front cavern is also home to enormous colored boulders that are casually strewn around like throw pillows in an upscale living room.
Rio Frio Cave was once used as a sacred burial site for the ancient Maya. Visitors can wend their way through the stalactites and boulders in order to get to the running stream (Rio Frio or "Cold Water River" in Spanish) that flows through the cave, terminating in a lovely series of cascading waterfalls #riofriocave#mountainpineridge#cayodistrict#stalactites#pineridgeforestreserve#hugeentrance#waterstream

Belize 🇧🇿 is home to many wondrous caves that the ancient Mayan people believed were the homes of gods and the entrances to the underworld Xibalba (meaning: place of fear). Tubing through a series of caves, learning about the surrounding flora and fauna, and listening to the history of the caves was such a surreal experience. Loved every second of it! Except the baby tarantula! *
