Spiegel Online Covers Lower Dover (in German)

For the fall equinox at Caracol in Belize, we had a German filmmaker stop by Lower Dover’s Maya site and talk with the family about life, December 2012, Belize, and the future…

Hope to write a blog about whats been going on lately. I promise I will post some pics of anything crazy if it happens. Good luck and be safe.

Airfare Sale! Spend 12/12/12 and December 21, 2012 with the Maya in Mexico, Belize, or Guatemala

Spirit Airlines is offering what seems to be the best airfare to celebrate Baktun 14 with the Maya themselves. Witness and learn about the famous calendar from the people as a new beginning awaits in the foretold golden age of humanity!

These quotes are leaving on December 11 and returning December 24 for Christmas. Rates are round-trip to Cancun and include tax. Bag fees are excessive for Spirit as a means to keep fares low. Make sure to pre-book your bag when buying your ticket online ($20US online vs $45USD at the gate!) And the bag weights are to 40 lbs not the standard 50 with a harsh $25-50 USD fee for overweight items.

Newly Identified Maya Site in Belize – Lower Dover (Video)

We have been a little lazy on the blog lately. That’s about to change with the summer archaeology dig season at Lower Dover Field Station & Jungle Lodge starting at the end of this month. Expect full updates and lots of pictures. Maybe even a couple of Maya vids!

To get you primed, here is a video shot two years ago while walking in the jungle area of our property adjacent to the lodge. As you will also notice, the ruins extend throughout the property even to the lodge area where the library sits.
