Established around 1750 during the logwood period, Crooked Tree is perhaps the earliest inland European settlement in Belize. This island, in the middle of Crooked Tree Lagoon, is famous for locally grown and processed cashews. The Mayas lived in Crooked Tree several thousand years ago, as is evidenced by the Chau Hiix Archaeological Site at the south-western corner of Western Lagoon. The site has a central pyramid that rises almost 75 feet above the flat lagoon landscape. Excavations of tombs have turned up beads, containers, blades and ornamental objects that are providing a glimpse into everyday life in one of the last inhabited Mayan settlements. The site is called Chau Hiix, Mayan for jaguarundi, which inhabit the area. The site can be accessed by boat or canoe. Crooked Tree offers an enjoyable experience for birders of any skill level. With 16,400 acres of lagoons, creeks, logwood swamps, broadleaf forest and pine savanna, guests will be sure to see a wide array of wildlife. The Sanctuary protects globally endangered species including the Central American River Turtle (locally known as Hicatee), Mexican Black Howler Monkey, and Yellow-headed Parrot.
