Nim Li Punit is situated on a beautiful hilltop site near the village of Indian Creek, affording views of Belize, Guatemala and the Caribbean. This Mayan site is best known for the 26 stone stela that were found there. Each stele was carved with hieroglyphics and used to record important information such as alliances, wars and battles, and family trees. One of these stela, the second largest in the Mayan world, depicts a ruler wearing an elaborate large headdress, inspiring the name of Nim Li Punit, which means Big Hat in the Kekchi Maya language. This site also includes several stone ball courts where Mayans used to compete in ball games in honour of their gods.
After visiting Nim Li Punit, you will then be driven to the village of Big Falls, where you will have a picnic lunch beside the Rio Grande river. Next, you can be sure of an adrenaline rush as you zipline amidst the jungle canopy and over the river on 6 criss-crossing zip runs. After this, you will be dropped off for a refreshing tubing trip down the Rio Grande river, which includes a break at a local hot spring.
