They include the famous "Monkey Pot", one of only four located across Central America. There are several areas of skeletal remains in the main chamber.

Day 03 Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve - Toledo 

Early departure from Banana Bank Lodge. We will drive on beautiful Hummingbird Highway, then heading on the Southern Highway until we reach a village called Maya Centre. From there we will drive up 6 miles through the jungle to the Headquarter of the Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve which is a nature reserve in south-central Belize established to protect the forests, fauna and watersheds of an approximately 400 square kilometre area of the eastern slopes of the Maya Mountains. We will explore Flora and Fauna on the Tiger Fern Trail which will be a hike approx. 2 hours (one way). At the end we will have the chance to swim and refresh in the beautiful pools with waterfalls. We also have the possibility to do a shorter hike to another waterfall and Ben’s Bluff where we would have a great view over the Cockscomb Basin. Then we are heading back, driving more down south to the Toledo District where you will stay at cosy Hickatee Cottages for the overnight.

Day 04 Cacao Trail 

The Cacao Trail takes you into Toledo’s heartland, with its lush green interior blanketing the foothills of the Maya Mountains, and the traditional villages nestled throughout Toledo’s chocolate country! In this eco tour, you will visit the organic cacao orchards, where cacao is grown under the shade of indigenous trees, and alongside other crops, including pineapple, coffee, papaya, avocado and allspice. You will learn how the pods grow and are harvested, and the fermentation process which results in the beans that are the foundation of the famous Maya Gold organic chocolate—itself inspired by a local Mayan chocolate “kukuh” drink! Return to lodge.
