Easily accessible by car. After reading a few blogs, we were a little hesitant about taking the trip with our small rental. Turns out, most of the road is perfectly paved. About 5 to 10 minutes away from the site, we encountered a few substantial craters and pot holes that we were easily able to navigate. We spent about an hour in total. There is a trail leading out to a pond that we attempted but quickly opted out of once we realized the mosquitoes weren't phased by our repellent bracelets and layer of mosquito spray. Definitely worth the trip. Wear good shoes for climbing the steep steps and be ready for great photo ops.
Spectacular excavation of Mayan ruins. Interesting small museum attached. Hire a guide. Self-guided tours miss much detail, and we couldn't find any literature for such a visit. $10 Belize to enter. Local vendors at entrance worth considering for crafts purchase with negotiable prices.
Took a while to get here, but it was interesting. Our tour guide was great (wish I could remember her name) and that really made for a great and informative trip. Glad I can check it off my list but I would not go back. BTW, the vendors outside the park were really cool. We ate some awesome authentic Belizean food and had some of the most incredible pineapple ever.
It's hot as hell in the summer, and while a whole bunch of people will sell you a big bottle of water for about $2, if you're sensitive to heat, go in the winter. I went during the summer, and they were selling bug spray, but we declined and ended up not needing it. It was midday, though. There are many, many vendors asking to sell you things. If you have a hard time saying no, let someone else hold your money. I tried the sliced mango, and it was somewhat bland and underripe, but not awful. The ruins themselves were pretty spectacular. I also enjoyed the history lesson and the mini museum. Climbing to the top of the ruins was fun, but some people had littered up there, which was pretty ridiculous. We cleaned it up for the workers because it's not their fault that tourists are disrespectful. Our trip was a short one; I'd like to explore more of this place sometime. Maybe it'll earn more stars.
Awesome historical site. The ruins here are easily accessible and are some of the best I have been to. A couple very intact pyramids and temple structures. MAKE SURE TO BRING MOSQUITO REPELLENT!!!! the mosquitoes are intense and if you wish to purchase it there you will spend 9 or 10 dollars for it.
great site, we had a wonderful tour guide. one of my favorite sites that I have been to. Not a long way from the port and there was plenty of shade
This is a beautifully preserved and peaceful site. It is partially explored and excavated. There are a few of the larger ones that have not been dug out or are partially dug up. There are a number of household mounds that have not been dug up. There are two large courtyards each surrounded by ruins. A couple of ruins are currently being be explored. Also, there is a large tourist shopping area.
The artisans had many quality handcrafted items to choose from. There are several vendors so try to spread the wealth by purchasing from each person if you can as this is how they are supporting themselves. Being a fellow artist I admired everyone's work.
Great view from the top! Interesting story make sure you stop in the informative shelter before the entrance it explains in detail what they used this place for. Climb to the top is breath taking, literally.
Just amazing! Beautiful and majestic. Had an awesome tour guide and he even took us in places behind the temples where other tourists did not go. We even got to climb the temple's. Worth visiting and closer to Belize city then the other ruins throughout the country.
