  • Our family really enjoyed the ruins, the site and the guide, Willy. Willy was part of the excavation of 2 burial sites, and was responsible for sketching it out. One of the most exciting parts is that the grounds are only approximately 5% excavated... as funds arrive, they continue. There is another big project scheduled for next year. We plan on returning frequently to see new finds.
  • A very historic Mayan site. Here you can see how the reconstruction takes place (what a job!) and some great background and insight into the culture of the time. The on-site guides are extremely knowledgeable, our one was actually part of the restoration process and knew everything. Well worth a visit for some great Stellae. It's medium sized place, so not many of the huge stepped pyramid structures that are found elsewhere, but it's settings gives a great idea of how these 'towns' might have been. Quite close to the Southern Highway, so not much of a detour if you are travelling down that road.
  • First time visit for me. Very nice small museum. Hiking trails are in good shape but recent rain made for slippery conditions. As a Mayan devote I am glad I saw it even in the light rain. Some people commented just another run, but it is one of my passions. There are many different features among the Mayan City ruins.
  • Guides were excellent but there are better Mayan Ruins to see in other countries. Good set of starter ruins.
  • The ruins are not the most impressive in Belize but the tour was really well done and it had some beautiful views and scenery. I learned a lot and it was worth doing.
