According to NICH's Institute of Archaeology, the general admission fees to all the archaeological parks in Belize are set to increase.
Today, the organization sent out a press release today saying that in accordance with SI #40 of 2010, the NICH Board of Directors has approved the entrance fee increase. This increase becomes effective on November 1, 2012.
