Chan Chin, which means "little bird," is popular amongst bird watchers, canoers, horseback riders, hikers, and archeologists. The property is a lodge that combines tropical wildlife and Mayan ruins in a natural site that can't be missed.
Guided and self-guided tours are available at Chan Chin, taking visitors on hikes on one of the numerous trails through the jungle, visit some of the Mayan ruins on property, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of local wildlife.
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.
Those wishing to visit Chan Chich may choose to book their trip in Orange Walk District, as travelers to this region of Belize will be pleased to have convenient access to the historical site during their time there. With only a small number of hotels in the region surrounding Chan Chich, less than average tourist movement should be anticipated.
