Maya Mountain Research Farm

Location --  Maya Mountain Research Farm is fairly remote. We are two 
miles up river from the predominantly Kek'chi Mayan village of San 
Pedro Columbia, in Belize's southernmost district of Toledo.

One border of MMRF is the river called the Columbia Branch of the Rio 
Grande, the other side of which is the Columbia Indian Reservation. 
We are about a mile and a half's walk on rugged trails from the 
ancient Mayan ruins of Lubaantun. The river emerges from the ground 
1/4 mile up river from us, and the drainage for this watershed begins 
in the Columbia River Forest Reserve, a 100,000 acre, unique, fairly 
pristine natural area of broadleaf forest.

We are in a wonderful location, on the one hand connected to the 
village by the river that is the local highway, and on the other hand 
in close proximity to high bush in the Columbia River Forest Reserve
