Historical Excursions

An archaeologist’s work is not finished unless he or she can sit back and reflect on the day’s excavation. Therefore, the group will make time to experience Belize away from the shovels and wheelbarrows, either by relaxing at a café or by visiting several nearby Maya sites.

We believe that visiting the region’s historical sites is essential to understanding the context of the archaeological work at Cahal Pech. Excursions may change depending on the excavation schedule and unforeseen events. Probably excursions include the following:
– Xunantunich
– Hopkins Beach
– Actn Tunichil Muknal Cave
– Big Rock Falls
– Lamanai
