Although their website says that you need advance reservations to visit this park, we wanted to go on Saturday, and the House of Culture, in Benque Viejo was closed. We asked several people, and finally found some young men playing guitar in a small park, who were familiar with Poustinia. They gave us good directions, but they were puzzled as to why anyone would want to go there! We were driving, and had no trouble finding the Land Art Park, 3 miles south of Benque, on a very rough road. The gate to the 32 acre park was open, and we pulled straight into the parking lot. The caretaker appeared at once, and gave us a map, and general directions for enjoying the exhibits. Their website says that they offer a guided tour, but she did not mention that to us. The concept for the park, as well as the artworks, themselves, are very thought-provoking. For us, the experience of walking all alone, through the balmy silence of the Belizian "bush", was worth the price of admission. The environmental themed artworks, placed in their natural settings are unlike anything I have ever seen. I think this concept could be used very well in my own rural area, or anywhere with eco-artists and vacant property! I think this would even work in an urban setting, if you had un-used open space, but the incredible beauty of the Cayo District of Belize, is the perfect location for this park. If you are an artist, and you would like to spend a week or two camping in the Belize outback while creating an environmentally themed installation, you should seek out more information about Poustina Land Art Park. If you are traveling in Cayo, and want to do something completely different, without other toursits, you should check out this attraction. Poustinia Land Art Park is unlike anything else you will see in Belize, or anywhere!
