Belize Mayan Ruin Caracol

Located in the Chiquibul Forest Reserve in the Cayo District, Caracol is Belize's largest, most important Mayan site. The site is known as the most extensive Maya center in the country. Cutting across the hilly terrain,covering about twenty-five square miles, remnants of vast agricultural field systems give evidence of an extensive farm industry that once provided sustenance for a large population. Caracol has an internal road system made up of 60 kilometers of Sacbeob (roads) and causeways, which served as routes for transportation and communication. This site is home to the tallest man-made structure in Belize, Canna, standing 143 ft above the plaza floor. The discovery of Alter 23, which shows bound captives, indicates that Caracol was an extremely fierce and war like center.
