There are caves in the area. Horse riding trips are provided by a neighboring farmer. During the dry season river bathing is also available. You can go canoeing on your own or be acompanied by a guide or ecological instructor.
And our well preserved Xunantunich Temple and it's magnificent forest is only a short ferry ride from the main highway. A butterfly farm is only a half hour away. All trips in this area are reasonably priced and conducted by experienced persons.
