Take a step back in time and discover the magical Mayan ruins. Today, in virtually every corner of Belize, remnants of the mighty Mayan civilization lay buried, awaiting rediscovery. Over 3,000 years of regional dominance have sprinkled the country with magnificent sacred cities and ceremonial centers hidden amidst the jungle and its extensive cave systems. Belize, the center of the ancient Mayan world, has a multitude of excavated sites within easy reach of The Placencia, including Lubaantun, Nim Li Punit and Xunantunich.
