Travel in and Around Belize

PfBAP staff meet volunteers and students at the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA) in Belize City.

The PfBAP will from time to time provide transportation for project participants to ancient Maya sites outside the PfBAP research area. These may include Lamanai, La Milpa, Chan Chich, and/or others.

One trip at the end of the Summer Session (included in session dates), may be available to Tikal, Guatemala and the Belize Cayes. This trip is optional and is an additional charge.
