Welcome to the lost city! A place far, far away from home. Caracol Sits in the heart of the Chiquibul rainforest. It is known to be one of the largest Maya cities in Belize. Dominating the centre of this important community is the massive structure known as Caana, “Sky Place.” This immense complex of palaces and temples remains today the tallest human-made construction in Belize. Are you ready for a bumpy ride? Join us as we travel deep into the green dense forest of Belize. Off we go on a three-hour drive to one of Belize’s most prestigious jewels. Up and down, side to side as we drive up the dirt road. Looking through the window and witnessing how the broadleaf forest transitions into a pine Forest then back into the broadleaf forest is alluring. This is quite astonishing as both hold different ambient and different species of wildlife. “Come on, Vamonos!” says Dora La Exploradora, as Belize awaits you.

Located in the deep green forest is a site called Caracol. This site was found in 1938 by Mahogany hunter, Rosa Mai. That year A.H Anderson visited the site and named it "Caracol" which means "Snail Shell." It is located on the western edge of the Maya Mountains which is found within the Chiquibul Forest Reserve. This site sits in a plateau of 500 meters above sea level. Research at Caracol has shown that this large city had a population of some 100,000 inhabitants. Major excavations and surveys have been undertaken, thus revealing a massive central core, and a dense continuous settlement extending out a radius of 8 kilometers. The metropolis is the area with busting markets, through forests, craft workshops and extensive farming. The inhabitants relied on an interdependent system of social and economic networks to maintain it's vitality. Visionary leaders, artists, engineers, farmers, warriors and villagers worked together to create a vibrant community. The people that once lived in his city have left a long lasting impression on the physical and cultural landscape which we now call "Caracol."
