Caracol Archaeological Reserve

Of all the awesome Belize Maya sites, Caracol would have to be one of the top in terms of importance and grandeur

This once great Maya city-state from the Maya Classic era is one of the country’s largest archaeological sites, and it also boasts the tallest man-made structure in the land. 

El Caracol means “the snail”, and its not entirely clear as to this why this appellation was applied.
