It's an interesting little site, with it's remains of pottery and bone fragments. I would definitely go with guide Jan Brown. She is very passionate about the site, and offers a lot of information about the Maya people who occupied this place so many years ago. She will even pick you up and drive you there for a small fee!

Absolutely stunning! If you visit Belize, be sure to not miss this and climb to the top of the temple where you can see into Guatemala. Such a beautiful part of history....

The walk along the boardwalk through the marsh was pretty, but watch out for the mosquitos once you are in the bush. They will seriously swarm you! The conch piles were very interesting and we saw lots of pottery shards and some remaining walls. This is no Tulum (or other major site) for sure, but a short afternoon excursion right on the island.

My family was fortunate enough to take a tour of this site, thanks to the wonderful tour guide Jan Brown, during our recent dive vacation to Ambergris Caye. Jan was very knowledgeable about the site and full of information, answering our questions and guiding us patiently through the area. We would recommend this for anyone who has the exploring 'bug". Be prepared for discovering a place like no other, suspended in time. Since it isn't developed and still in the early stages of discovery, don't expect many tourist or crowds.Please keep in mind that it is up to you to protect and preserve this area for future generations to learn from in reference to the Mayans way of life, and leave things as you find them. Scores of shards and pieces of pottery are scattered beneath the canopy. Overwhelming just to see just how much is on the surface, leaving to your imagination how much must be uncovered & what work lies ahead for Jan and her partners that are dedicated to this endeavor. Wear your hat, bring your bugspray,water, and get ready for a step back in time and a great learning experience! Thank You again Jan! In one word, Fantastic!

This was it for us. OK lots of mosquitoes so you need to come prepared with longer sleeves and pants (light weight) and LOTS of bug spray but it was So fascinating. The real human bones and pottery shards were amazing. This is so untouched and laying out in front of you.We loved Jan our guide. We stayed for hours, even if it was very hot and buggy. Thank God for bug spray. For us it was one of the most interesting thing we did on the island.
