A great travel report. Actun Tunichil Muknal amazed, as did Xunanatunich and Ka'ana's La Ceiba restaurant.
"After a good hour-long stretch, we hiked hundreds of feet to the top of the temple, where ancient royalty used to address their subjects gathered below. Seeing the remains of such an ancient city in such solitude and serenity was a majestic experience. If we had been in Tulum or Chichen Itza, hordes of tourists would have been traipsing the steps, lining up for staged photographs. But perched high atop Xunatunich, breathing in the tropical Belizean air, there was a sense of humbling beauty and connectedness to the past. Each inhale contained thousands of years of history, and every exhale gave back to the many more to come."
