    Never having been to a ruin before, nor in the jungle for that matter, this tour was quite fun. If you're headed to any other sites, however, such as tikal, i'd say skip it.

    the boat trip was about 2 hours and wound through some beautiful jungle. along the way were able to see some wildlife, including many brids and several small aligators. the menonites also live along the river and you're able to see their farms.

    the ruins are *nice*. not huge, but nice. our guide was also a *nice* guy, despite the fact he asked my friend to marry him (and he was already married).

    it is possible to do this tour in a day, without actually staying overnight in orange walk. the tour starts at 9, and returns around 4pm, and there is a 5pm direct bus to san ignacio and elsewhere. orange walk itself has little else to offer other than cheap chinese food.

    Hole-in-the-wall. Almost literally. I mean, this place is small! But the help is friendly, and they seem quite clean by Belizean hole-in-the-wall standards. As for the food, it is better than average quality for Chinese food (although once again, it is ketchup that is the condiment of choice for Chinese food in Belize). The best part is that the prices are really low, but quality is not sacrificed. And this place is VERY popular. If you go between 5pm-6pm, expect to wait a long time for your food. Also, note that they take orders in batches. There might be a line of 4 people in front of you, but she will ask everyone for their order at once, and go to work making it.

    Favorite Dish: $5 fried chicken with fried rice (that's BZ$5.00). It includes a breast and a wing together, with a nice crispy coating and nice herbs, and very good fried rice. You should know that if you order chicken fried rice (a separate listing on the menu), you are still going to get fried chicken with fried rice.
