Maya Heartland

From Cerros Maya in the north to the stone walls of Lubaantun in the south, Belize is truly the heart of this once great and mysterious culture.

Archaeology buffs and curious travelers alike will find that anywhere you are in Belize, our history is there. The Ancient Maya Temples are an attraction no other tropical location can offer, and one you'll always remember.

Belize is believed to have been at the heart of the Maya civilization that dominated Central America from 250-900 A.D.  Supporting this theory is the fact that Belize possess 1,400 recorded Maya sites, the greatest concertantion in the entire region. Physical evidence of this incredibly advanced civilization includes ceremonial temples, stately structures and fine artwork made of jade, stone and clay. 

The Maya were highly evolved mathematicians, and sites are imbued with fascinating symbolic meaning. Archaeologists and students from around the globe come to Belize to advance their own learning. Maya antiquities are also on display at various visitor centers coutnrywide, and at the Museum of Belize in Belize City that inlcudes the largest carved jade Maya object ever discovered.
