At Chaa Creek they have a small museum about the history of Belize and the Mayan culture. They also have a small exhibit about the native animals in the region as well as their efforts at helping to increase the Howler Monkey population in the country.
There is also a Blue Morpho Butterfly farm. This is quite interesting! We had a short but very interesting lesson on more than you could imagine about the life cycle of the Blue Morpho. They are actively harvesting the eggs, hundreds a week from the egg stage right through the larvae until they emerge into butterflies. It was quite a sight!
Barton Creek Cave! This cave was used as a Mayan ritual site until around 900 AD. We went into the 7 mile long cave on a canoe, which our guide paddled and he told us all of the history and legend that went along with it. We had a bright lamp, powered by a car battery which we took with us into the canoe! The cave was beautiful. We went about 3/4 of a mile into the cave. The ceilings were about 150 feet high at some points. We could see some of the pottery that was left and there were many bats flying past our heads! We were told there have been approximately 28 human remains found in the cave.
