The New River—an ancient Maya waterway—showcases the wildlife and beautiful scenery of Northern Belize. Take a boat ride to the Ancient Maya Temples for an up-close look at wildlife, sugar cane fields and a glimpse of the Mennonite farms. The temples are a look at our mysterious and amazing Maya ancestry. When it comes to seeing a lot in a small amount of time, Northern Belize is definitely the place to go. Get plenty of rest. It’s going to be a busy trip.
