Las BanquitasThis small museum—the name refers to the little benches in a nearby riverside park—presents changing exhibitions on Orange Walk District history and culture

On the New River in Orange Walk, exhibitions display the district’s rich history, from ancient Maya ceramics and carvings found at Lamanai, to less ancient weapons and tools of the European mahogany cutters and Maya chicelos—the men who tapped the trees for the sticky chicle— used in chewing gums.
