Ferry cross the Mopan Aug 24, 2006
The ferry across the Mopan River connects Belize's Western Highway with the Xunantunich Mayan ruins site and resorts across the river. The ferry is a sight to see and ride itself. It's small, with room for only one vehicle and pedestrians. (Vehicles are limited in size. No buses.) The ferry is pulled along by a cable. The ferryman manually operates the cable winch.

If you are driving a car to Xunantunich, you'll need to take the ferry. If you are on a tour to see Xunantunich, the bus will drop you off to take the ferry across. Vans will pick you up on the far side to take you the rest of the way. There is a Belize bus stop nearby for backpackers trekking to the site.

Local vendors set up stalls near the ferry to sell woven goods, carvings, and souvenirs.

There is no set charge, but it is customary to tip the ferryman.
