Photo of Xununtanich Mayan Ruin pyramid
You can see the size by the group of tourists in the bottom left hand corner of the photo. I first climbed this Mayan temple ruin back in 1962 and it still had jungle trees growing on it. We had to pull ourselves up by bushes and tree roots to get to the top. This is a classic area pyramind. The Mayan people still live in San Jose Sucttoz across the Mopan river and a few miles away also in Benque Viejo Town.
