The Mayflower Bocawina National Park, named after one of the ancient Mayan sites recently found there,
A tourist hikes at the bottom of Antelope Falls during the dry season in May
consists of over 7000 acres of beautiful broadleaf forest and jungle in
a semi mountainous terrain. The area was declared a National Park in
2001 and is located about four miles off of the Southern Highway at
Mile 6.The Mayflower site along with two other sites in the park are
currently being excavated by the Mayflower Archeology Project.

Archeologists predict once the excavation is complete the Mayflower
site will rank as one of the largest in Belize. There is a visitor
center staffed by two park Wardens who are available to give directions
and advice to visitors who wish to hike and sightsee in the park. Trail
maps are available and the park admission fee is $10.00 BZ payable to
the park wardens. All three archeological sites are near the visitor's
center and easily accessible on clear trails. The park has also become
well known to exotic birders, with over 200 different species recorded
in the last few years.

You can expect to see the Keel Billed Motmot, Macaws, and several
different types of parrots and toucans. There are also howler monkeys,
coatimundis, anteaters, peccaries, and several other species of
wildlife evident in the park including the elusive jaguar. Of course,
since the jaguar is a nocturnal creature it usually sleeps during the
day, but hikers often see fresh footprints near the trails. Some of the
hikes are rated moderate to difficult and require hikers to grab onto
ropes to climb to the top of the trails. This tour is either half day
or full day. What to bring: Hiking shoes or boots, (open toed sandals
are not recommended), insect repellent, sun hat, camera, binoculars,
water bottle, swim suit, towel.
