Note on visiting Mayan sites in western Belize
Note on visiting Mayan sites in western Belize: for safety reasons, renting a car to drive into this region can be risky, and is not for the faint at heart (due to reported robbery incidents). Also, only experienced drivers should attempt to go through some of the poorly-paved roads to get there. For that reason, tour groups are the way to go to see these fascinating ruins.
Travelers interesting in see these ruins are advised to pre-arrange tours (and accompanying transport from Belize City) through these and other outfits: www.cayoadventure.com; www.crystalparadise.com; www.greendragonbelize.com; www.mayanheartworld.com; www.blackrocklodge.com; www.slickrock.com; www.pacztours.net
