Chiquibul National Park
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chiquibul National Park is Belize's largest national park. It is 1,073 km² (414 sq miles) in size. The park is located in Belize's Cayo District. The national park surrounds Caracol, a Mayan city. Caracol has been designated as an archaeological reserve and is not included within the park's total area. Chiquibul Forest Reserve is adjacent to the park. Chiquibul National Park was originally part of Chiquibul Forest Reserve, which was designated in 1956. In 1991, due to lobbying from conservationists, the three-quarters of the forest reserve that did not have active logging concessions was re-designated as a national park under Belize's National Parks System Act.
