We have been informed by the Institute of Archaeology and NICH that effective April 1st, 2004 admission fees to Lamanai, Altun Ha, Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, El Pilar and Nim Li Punit Archaeological Reserves will be increased to BZD$10.00. The entrance fee for Caracol will be BZD$15.00, while those for Actun Tunichil Mucnal, Barton Creek Cave, Cerro Maya and Caves Branch Archaeological Reserves will remain at their present level.

During the last three years the Tourism Development Project expended considerable time and financial resources to enhance our archaeological parks. The fees increase is therefore necessary to offset the costs of all these recent improvements. You should note that these increases were discuss with the private sector from early last year.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Dr. Jaime Awe, Director of Institute of Archaeology or Mr. Victor Espat, NICH Administrator.

We appreciate your partnership in all these endeavours and thank you in advance for your cooperation.
