Visit one of the best choices for leisure or adventurous explorations in southern Belize
With 7,087 acres of preserved low and highlands of the Mayflower Bocawina National Park, it is one of the best choices for leisure or adventurous explorations. Located on the eastern end of the Maya Mountains next to the Sittee River Forest Reserve in southern Belize, this national park is a connecting region between the Maya Mountains and the coastal regions.
The park offers excellent wildlife observation and birding opportunities as well as access to several Mayan sites and beautiful waterfalls via a system of maintained trails through the forest. Mayan sites include the main Mayflower Plaza, Maintzunun temple mound and Tau Witz. Waterfalls include Bocawina Falls, Three Sisters Falls, Antelope Falls, Peck Falls and Big Drop Falls.
