What can you tell me about Maya History in Belize?

The Maya past, present and future are an important part of the Belize experience. This history of the Maya continues today in over half the population of Ambergris Caye. To the people here on the island, this is more than a series of memories carved in limestone or glazed on pottery. A majority of the people who will greet you and feed you and dive with you here on the island have the blood of Maya running in their veins. This area long served as the maritime headquarters of the Chetumal Bay Maya population. The boat builders and maintenance crews, along with the fishing industry, kept Ambergris Caye as a very important segment of the Maya economic system.
