The Mayflower Bocawina National Park is located in the Stann Creek District at the base of the Maya Mountains, with over 7000 acres of pristine lowland broadleaf forest, waterfalls and evidence of an ancient Mayan City. While its original attraction was the Mayflower Archaeological Site, it was established as a national park in 2001, which emphasizes community co-management and environmental protection. Mayflower National Park is co-managed by local stakeholders, Friends of Mayflower Bocawina (FOMFB), the Forest Department and the Institute of Archaeology.
Archeologists predict once the excavation is complete the Mayflower site will rank as one of the largest in Belize. The trail system offers excellent hiking and it’s an adventurous climb to Antelope Falls.
The National Park designation supports the protection of the watersheds, and allows for low-impact non-extractive activities such as education, tourism and research activities.
