JOURNEY THROUGH THE UNDERWORLD
Belize is home to one of the most extensive cave systems in the Western Hemisphere. Once they were the supernatural realm of an ancient culture who used them as a place of ritual and sacrifice. Today, as then, they conceal a world of mysterious littleÃ¯Â¿Â½known animals. Now, three explorers are about to journey into caverns that once were the province of the Maya, a civilization that flourished here a thousand years ago and then mysteriously disappeared. But these caves are a new frontier in both archeology and biology, and this journey is only a beginning.
