Map of Mayflower Bocawina National Park

This beautiful 11-sq-mile park of jungle, mountains, waterfalls, walking trails, swimming holes and small Maya sites lies about 16 miles southwest of Dangriga and 12 miles northwest of Hopkins. The walks are at least as good as the trails most people do at Cockscomb Basin, and you’ll encounter far fewer tourists. You’ll see lots of birds, and the park is home to two troops of black howler monkeys. A 4-mile unpaved access road, leaving the Southern Hwy 2 miles north of Silk Grass village, brings you to a small visitors center, where you pay the park fees, and the partly excavated Mayflower Maya site, with two pyramids and nine other structures, occupied in the late 9th and early 10th centuries. Antelope Trail leads down over Silk Grass Creek to the larger, unexcavated, partly tree-covered Maintzunun temple mound, 250yd away (built around 800). Continue on a further 1.7 miles – steep and strenuous in places – up to the beautiful 100ft-high Antelope Falls, with great panoramas. The less demanding Bocawina Hill Trail (1.4 miles) leads to the lower and upper Bocawina Falls: there’s a cool swimming pool at the foot of the 50ft upper falls. Branch trails, for which a guide is recommended, lead to Peck Falls and Big Drop Falls.
