Prince Harry has paid a visit to the ancient Mayan temple, pyramid and palace in Belize on the second day of his Caribbean tour.
After a carnival welcome in the country's capital Belmopan on Friday night, the Prince sought the tranquillity of the historic Xunantunich site.
In temperatures reaching into the 30s, Prince Harry climbed to the top of the temple ruins accompanied by the site's archaeological commissioner to view a Mayan 'Deer Dance' below.
Clearly feeling the heat and using a towel to wipe his brow, the 27-year-old army Apache helicopter pilot then attended a festival of food, music and arts and crafts held in the ancient palace court.
Earlier the prince, who is conducting the Diamond Jubilee Caribbean tour on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II , visited the Belize-Guatemala border where he visited an arts studio for children from both countries.
The Prince was told border disputes in the past between Belize and neighbouring Guatemala meant good neighbourly relations were particularly vital.
In order to reach the Mayan temple Prince Harry was forced to ditch his Belize government cavalcade and board a rudimentary pontoon and was hand-winched across a river.
On the other side of the river Harry took time to christen a new Diamond Jubilee canoe, pouring beer into it as he named it the QEII.
Talking last night about the upcoming naming ceremony Prince Harry noted it would be "a waste of the best beer in the west."
The Prince's final engagement of the first leg of his Caribbean tour saw him lay a wreath for British soldiers at Price Barracks in Belize City.
Harry begins the next part of his tour in the Bahamas before flying on to Jamaica and Brazil.
