Elijio Panti National Park (Noj K'a'ax Meen Elijio Panti National Park)
Elijio Panti National Park (Noj K'a'ax Meen Elijio Panti National Park) Review
Named after the famed Guatemala-born herbal healer who died in 1996 at the age of 106, Elijio Panti National Park is the latest addition to Belize's extensive national parks system. It spans about 16,000 acres around the villages of San Antonio, Cristo Rey, and El Progreso into the Mountain Pine Ridge. In the park are Sakt'aj waterfalls and two dry caves known as Offering and Cormorant. The hope is that with no hunting in this park, more birds and wildlife will return to western Belize. At this writing, a visitor center with a natural healing medicine trail near the village of San Antonio is under construction. Currently you must be accompanied by a licensed tour guide to enter the park. For information on the park and how to visit it, check with tour guides in San Ignacio or ask at the Garcia Sister's gift shop at the Tanah Art Museum in San Antonio village.
