We drove by it a few times last weekend and thought it was ok, but nothing special. Right on the water, and interesting to look at.

Very neat monument on the path to town. We stayed at Princess hotel, instead of using a cab, we walked to the restaurant . This was at thehalfway mark to our restaurant.

Beautiful location and a nice monument. Not a whole lot to be said. A quick visit. Not something I would make a special trip.

This is an interesting monument in the middle of nowhere. We went by because we missed the turn to the Museum of Belize. There is a sidewalk but, other than that, the area is undeveloped and there is no other reason to be there. As...More
