The Annual MAYA MOUNTAINS FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL is held each December in Hillview, a suburb of the twin towns of Santa Elena
and San Ignacio. These country towns are at the end of the opening of the Macal River Gorge and are an ancient trade route
into the Guatemalan interior. Mayan pyramids dot the hilltops through the hill pass, from the broad Belize River plain to
the Peten District interior of the ancient Fuedal Mayan Kingdoms of Guatemala. Logwood, forestry, chicle have been the traditional
products of this Wild Western area. Today a growing tourist trade of adventures into caving, river canoing, Mayan temples
keep a very small cadre of tourist guides busy. Most other activities are to do with ranching and farming. The area is the
site of a very large Mennonite farming community below the Yalbac Hills. The twin towns, and a number of small villages lie
in the foothills of the Belize Alps about 70 miles away as the parrot flies.
