We have lived here for 7 years, been to Caracol countless times, and never bothered to take the turn to get a look at the Chalillo Dam.
Today, we went to the opening of the Chiquibul Park Visitors' Center, and took the 15 minute detour to drive to a parking area overlooking the dam. It was smaller than we expected.
Pictures to follow of the new Chiquibul Park Visitors' Center, which is a great addition to the area. It's on the road to Caracol and Las Cuevas, and provides a great meeting and information point to make the Chiquibul Park more accessible.
