A lot of firsts happened on this trip. First time touching a shark, first time repelling, first time eating termites and yet another! First time seeinn an ancient Mayan site- Xunantunich. For some of you wondering, as I had, about the pronunciation it looks like this: zoo(or shoo)- nan-ton-niche.
Composed of three main site, Xunantunich lies just a quick ferry away from Belmopan and our home at Chaa Creek Jungle Lodge. While at Chaa Creek, we also had the opportunity to go horseback riding and paddle along the Macal River. Our final dinner during our FAM trip (familiarization trip) was at Ka'ana Rainforest Resort. We feasted on a local Mayan food and enjoyed a small fire before turning in.
