Nim Li Punit
Nim Li Punit Review
Nim Li Punit, a Late Classic site discovered in 1976, has 26 unearthed stelae, including one, Stela 14, that is 30 feet tall—the largest ever found in Belize and the second largest found anywhere in the Mayan world. Nim Li Punit, which means "Big Hat" in the Ket'chi Mayan (sometimes referred to as Kek'chi) language, is named for the elaborate headgear of a ruler pictured on Stela 14. Shady trees cool you off as you walk around the fairly small site (you can see it all in an hour or so). Stop by the informative visitor center on the premises to learn more about the site. Nim Li Punit is near the Ket'chi village of Indian Creek, and children (and some adults) from the village usually come over and offer jewelry and crafts for sale.
