Our day began with our bumpy ride to Xunantunich. We toured and hiked the ruins with our guide Francisco. He was our guide for the full 4 days. He is very well informed and a good driver too. We had a great lunch in town before getting in our canoes to paddle the Macal River. Francisco suggested we order nachos for an appetizer and they were the best. We had 2 canoes and paddled up river first. We didn't get to see much wildlife but I did spot a Tocan, and lots of bats. The river was beautiful. When we returned to Pook's Hill I hiked to the rock pools for a dip in the river. Supper at Pook's Hill was delicious. We enjoyed a night hike in the darkness with Francisco. He is great at spotting wildlife in the dark. We saw native birds and a tarantual.
