The park is a 4 mile drive off the Southern highway, thru the orange orchids, and is a beautiful driving experience. Once you arrive, be prepared for a lush subtropical rainforest thick with trees, orchids, ferns. In the near vacinity are Mayan ruins. In addition, Mayflower is also one of the best places for bird spotting due to its abundant bird population. Serious hikers may want to trek to the steep Antelope trail which is an estimated 1,100 ft. high. At the top there is a spectacular view and a natural pool to swim in near a cascading waterfall. A perfect spot for you to cool down before heading back. Bring a guide or go on your own.
