When you’re planning your visit to gay-friendly Belize, make sure you include a day trip that takes you deep into an ancient historical mystery. Learn about the Maya civilization that existed here centuries ago.
Who Were the Maya?
The Maya civilization was impressive. The Maya people had sophisticated knowledge of architecture, engineering, and mathematics. They developed an advanced calendar and developed farming techniques that are still in use today.
For thousands of years, the Maya empire extended across much of what is now Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize. At one time, over a million people lived in the great Maya cities in Belize. You can catch a glimpse of their ancient existence in the well-preserved Maya ruins, where you can view temples, pyramids, and game courts.
The Maya empire may have faded into the mists of history, but the Maya people survived. Today, you can find them living in Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize, where they have preserved the Maya languages, culture, and religious traditions.
