Cerros

Between the years of 350 BC and 250AD, Cerros was an important trade center in the Maya community.

  1. Cerros
 
Between the years of 350 BC and 250AD, Cerros was an important trade center in the Maya community. It is, in fact, the only coastal ruin to be unearthed to this day. Strategically placed at the mouth of the New River, this site would have given an immediate link to the coastal trade route of many other Yucatan peninsula settlements.
 
What to Expect
Although partially underwater, Cerros is still an important ruin. There are five temples with connecting plazas, two ball courts, and an impressive canal and irrigation system. Not only do visitors get to explore these ruins, but the view of the surrounding region from the site is a beautiful site to see. Cerros is located on 53 acres overlooking Chetumal Bay.

Cerros is not only an archeological site 

Staying Close
Those wishing to visit Cerros may choose to book their trip in Corozal District, as travelers to this part of Belize will be pleased to have easy site access for the duration of their trip. There isn't much congestion in the area near the historic site, particularly since there are so few hotels in the vicinity.
