These aren't the most spectacular of ruins but nonetheless it was a very interesting visit. I quite enjoy seeing sites that have not been primped and this one still has that 'off the beaten track' feel. It is small & doesn't have many visitors. We...More

Nice place to see an archaeological site in the Toledo district. The hike is fairly easy to walk with kids. It'll take about half an hour to get around. You'll see several structures, a ball court, and tombs... just don't expect to see any pyramids.

We signed up for this tour on an NCL cruise. The guide, Francisco, from H2O Terra Tours was extremely knowledgeable. His tour included not only the history of Belize but also discussed the ancient and current Mayan cultures and the culture of the Belizean people....More

Visited as part of a cruise ship excursion. The tour guide was very good and the site is in the jungle. Interesting little museum with beautiful Mayan art. Definitely worth a visit.

Our guide was Lyra Spang and her vast knowledge made this site come alive. It was a royal residence, so if you're looking for large temples, this is not the tour for you. The views were breath taking.

Tour guides were very friendly, informative and open to questions. The scenery was beautiful and was intrigued by all the history.

We came off the Norwegian at harvest cay. We took a boat ride to shore, then a bus for an hour to the site. Biggest tip: bring a snack. Our tour started at 11am and ended late afternoon. There were no places to get a...More

We were on an Oceania tour but as they are owned by NCL I assume they use the same local tour company. There was no food stop but it isn't a full day tour (I think it was about 4 hours in total) so were back in time to eat... More
