euVisitors to three southern Belize archaeological sites will have better access to newly improved and enhanced commodities at the sites. A release from the European Union states that for the first time craft vendors at three of the nine archaeological sites in Belize, namely Nim Li Punit, Lubaantun and Blue Creek can display their products at these designated areas.


The infrastructural developments are the results of work being done under the Making Tourism Benefit Communities Adjacent to Archaeological Sites (M-T-B-CAAS) project. The project which is funded under the EU supported Belize Rural Development Programme (BRDP) is being implemented by the Belize Tourism Board and the National Institute of Culture and History.


Since its inception, the MTBCAAS project has also implemented other improvements across all nine sites. These include: new bathroom facilities, the establishment of Visitor's Centres with audio-visual equipment to enhance the tourist experience; the project also has a data collection component which focuses on Visitor Satisfaction Surveys and Trend Reports and improved health and safety standards. The project has also facilitated the training of artisans as well as local tour guides from the community.
