This hiking trail gives visitors an opportunity to learn about the many medicinal properties of rainforest plants and trees used by the ancient Maya in their daily lives. Many of these plants and trees are still used by Belizeans as “home” remedies. The intent of this guided tour is to spread the knowledge of Mayan healing traditions and also of rainforest preservation.

This guided tour starts with a brief overview and initiation of “dos’ and “do nots” in the rainforest.
