Birds of Chan Chich
The Mayan ruins on this property are a group of plazas that are believed to have served as ceremonial grounds and markets between 300 and 600 A.D. Scientists have surmised that two buildings to the west of the plaza were used in marking the summer and winter solstices.
You may enjoy staying in Orange Walk District if you plan on visiting Chan Chich, as travelers to this part of Belize will have easy site access throughout their trip. The area around this site remains relatively quiet, especially as there aren't many hotel rooms in the vicinity.
