Beautiful Mayan site rich and full of history. Bathrooms, food, souvenirs, and drinks on site. Great photo opportunities. Just be sure to bring bug repellant. Mosquitos are horrible.

We visited the Mayan ruins with Major Tom Greenwood and it was a delight. He is more like a professor on the history here than a tour guide. We were met at the water taxi in Belize City by Major Tom and his son minor...More
