According to legends dating back to initial explorations in 1892, the Mayan city whose original name is still unknown is haunted by the ghost of a woman all in white with glowing red eyes. After appearing at the base of the city’s temple, El Castillo, she’ll ascend the steps and disappear into the structure’s wall. This phenomena soon earned the city the name Xunantunich, or “stone woman”.

 

Whether or not the legend is true, a journey to Xunantunich is a journey into a place of mysticism. As the Mayan empire crumbled across the Yucatan, Xunantunich’s power grew. It became such an important center that it even managed to construct the second tallest man-made structure in Belize, El Castillo. Excavations also show that it was completely deserted during the Classic Period due to some sudden catastrophic event theorized to be an earthquake.

 

As you make your way toward this ancient city, you’ll find the only way across the Mopan River is by a hand-cranked ferry owned and operated by the locals. This ferry will pull you across to the other side where you’ll be greeted by the remnants of a city that stood strong even in the face of decline. Once there, be sure to take your time admiring the beautiful artwork of the friezes along El Castillo as they tell the tale of the birth of gods and depict the tree of creation.

While Barton Creek is impressive for its sheer size and depth, the canoes remain on a course through the areas most traveled. Guides bring you deep into the cave so you can marvel at the shimmer from the countless crystal formations then turn the canoe around so your journey can end where it began.

 

As a cave, Barton Creek served as an important place of worship for the ancient Maya. Though looting was rampant upon discovery of the system, Barton Creek has nevertheless remained a place of historical significance. Archaeologists still find remnants of Mayan culture within and have found no less than 28 different human remains. Even with such a large collection of historical majesty, it's the natural formations that make this cave truly special.
