Have you visited U Kuuchil Uuchben Maaya Baalob Museum in Cristo Rey? This Maya Museum is for a proud Yucatec Maya guardian, Mr. Faustino Yam. The Museum encompasses the true essence of a Maya community and its people.

In addition to the tools, utensils and memorabilia display, you can walk through the medicinal garden, which adds to the overall Maya experience. Mr Faustino and his wife are great hosts and make you feel at home. Make it a STOP while travelling through Belize.
