Squire travels to Xuantunich Mayan Ruins

Michelle and Doug Loper visited Belize in January and took their local paper, the Rockford Squire, along.

The couple are pictured at the Xuantunich Mayan Ruins (pronounced CHEW-nahn-too-neech) on January 19. The runs are just eight miles from the Guatemala border. “The largest structure is the pyramid El Castillo, which is 160 feet from the plaza floor and built at the top of a hill,” described Michelle. “From the top of El Castillo you can see the breathtaking view of the rest of the ruins. The restored sections of this city contain a ceremonial center, residences for the wealthiest of the population, a middle-class residential area, and a ball court complex.”

Thank you to the Lopers for remembering to take their paper along and sending these dramatic photographs.Email Squire vacation pictures to squiremail@aol.com.
