Day 5: Xunantunich, Bufferfly & School visit

Today we were visiting another ancient Mayan ruin, Xunantunich.  This site had a huge main temple, the second highest building in all of Belize to this day.  It was amazing to walk though all that history that dates back to 250 BC.  All the kids put in a solid effort and climbed to the top of El Castillo.  If you look closely you can see them at the top, the small specs!


 
 
After these amazing ruins, we headed to a conservation area, known for their butterfly sanctuary the blue Belize morphs butterfly.  While the kids were checking out the smaller stuff, I was fascinated by the birds that could be seen around us.
 
 
 
 
Lastly we visited a local school.  Even though most of the kids were on Easter break as well, we found several that made the trip worthwhile.  I think some of the kids found this to be their favorite stop of the day.
 
 
 
 
Tomorrow we leave the mainland and head to the cage.  Pretty excited myself for this part of the trip.  You Betta Belize it!
