The recently inaugurated Kutz Park offers visitors a glimpse of the island in ancient times when it was an important trade center and the site of a shrine to the goddess Ixchel.
By watching a light and sound show and the representation of Mayan ceremonies, the audience learns about the different periods of Mayan history, society and customs, religion and their extraordinary accomplishments in architecture, art and science.
