LUBANTUN Maya Site & NIM LI PUNIT Maya Site

Start the day with a continental breakfast. Departing the Lodge about 7:00 am, you will catch a flight to Punta Gorda (PG) in Southern Belize. At 9:00 am, at the PG Airport, you will be met by a tour guide to begin your journey into the Southern Maya. A forty five minute drive will take you to the Mayan site of Nim Li Punit, located in Indian Creek Village. Nim Li Punit is a medium sized site from the Maya Classic Period. It consists of structures surrounding three plazas, including several step-pyramids and a number of carved stelae. Nim Li Punit has an onsite museum. After Nim Li Punit you will enjoy lunch and continue your journey to nearby San Pedro Columbia Village, where you will discover the Mayan Temples of Lubaantun, the biggest Mayan archeological site in Southern Belize. The City dates from the Maya Classic era. The architecture is somewhat unusual compared to typical Belize classical central lowland Maya sites. The city is made from 11 structures built around 5 plazas. While visiting Southern Belize, and as you walk along ancient structures and stelaes don’t forget to stop and enjoy one of the most spectacular views in Southern Belize. Both Mayan sites have a large variety of birds so be on the lookout for any wildlife you may encounter during your tour. Your guide will have you back at the PG airport for 3:30 pm to check your flight to Belize City, where you will be met by a BRL staff member and transferred to the Lodge. (Early departure from the Lodge is required to make the tour in time.)
