“Bumpy road to Diamond in the rough”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

These ruins are still being uncovered and the largest group of ruins uncovered this far in Belize. There was an archeologist and students on site working while we visited. This ruins are very kept up. We had a Belizean guide with us and I highly recommend to get one. The history and information is amazing. we spent about 4 hours in the area. Some of the ruins we were allowed to climb. I felt the Mayan presence... It is a must see attraction while in Belize.

“Climb the Tallest Building in Belize!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We loved that this place is not fully excavated since it excited our imaginations to climb to the top of the tallest temple and envision what else might be sleeping under the trees and grasses of the area. Be sure you find a good guide. We went with Edgar, from Windy Hill Resort, and he not only knew so much history of Caracol, but shared his knowledge of the edible plants of the jungle as we walked through.

“A half day at Caracol”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This ruins site (only 10% excavated, yet a lot to see). involves a long car/van ride and a lot of walking. You will see jungle and open areas where the ruins have been excavated. You can climb and touch most areas. A knowlegable guide is necessary.
