Bacalar Chico & A Trip All the Way Around Magical Ambergris Caye

Marco Gonzalez Maya Site on the Southern End of Ambergris Caye

Marco Gonzalez Reserve is the only official Maya site on Ambergris Caye.   The location is relatively remote – 5 miles south of San Pedro town and set back deep into the mangroved lagoon.   It was “discovered” just 35 years ago – in 1984 – when a young local man, Marco Gonzalez, led two visiting archaeologistsKeep reading »

A March Tuesday on Ambergris Caye

Away from San Pedro town, Ambergris Caye has one main road that runs north to south. Just a few years ago, much of it was just a path – one that turned to mud in the rainy season. In 2014, the paving began – and when completed, it stretched from the bridge to Mile 4Keep reading »
