Located about an hour drive from Placencia Peninsula and about a mile in on the access road to the little Village of Sittee River stands a very important landmark in Belize’s Colonial history. It is the remnants of the steam powered Serpon Sugar Mill, which was established in 1865, and marked the start of Belize’s industrial era.
Estimates are that at its peak the Serpon Sugar Mill was producing and shipping 1,700 pounds of sugar per month. In the late 19th century, Serpon was a technological marvel with its main crusher, boiler, beam engine, furnace, and hot air exchanger were all powered by steam.
Along with all this history the site itself is a marvel of its own with all the fauna & flora, beautiful tress towering above the earth, like the massive Fig trees that looks as if though they go into the heavens. And the many colorful birds that make this wonderful place their home can be seen here.
After a morning of hiking this beautiful historical site, we head to the small Mayan Village of Mayan King for a local lunch.
After a tasty lunch we make our way to the waterfalls of Mayan King in south stann creek. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy the refreshing waters of the beautiful waterfall and swimming hole while enjoying nature.
This tour is best combined with one of the Mayflower Bocawina national Park Zip lining and Garifuna Cultural Experience.
