T16A – Spice Farm & Nim Li Punit Maya Temple
$116 per person
This tour begins with a visit at the awe-inspiring Maya ruins of Nim Li Punit, where this ancient city is so well-preserved you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in history. On this tour, you’ll get a wonderful blend of history, nature and beauty.
Belize has long been an important source of tropical spices. The Belize Spice Farm and Botanical Garden is part of that historic tradition, but it adds a modern-day twist.
Founded in 1990, the Spice Farm cultivates cacao and citrus in addition to exotic fruits, exotic wood trees like teak and mahogany, Indian spices like cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. You will learn the history of the Spice Farm and sample some exotic specialties.
The Spice farm is an oasis of shady floral arbors and beautifully-maintained orchards, gardens and wild bird habitats. The pristine air is filled with the scent of exotic plants, spices and woods. All around are the colors and sounds of wild parrots, parakeets, hummingbirds, toucans and chachalacas.
Nim Li Punit is a very small Maya site to enjoy
Its original name is unknown, but it’s modern Maya name means “Big Hat” because Nim Lim Punit is home to a large collection of carved stelae, including one of a chieftain in an elaborate headdress or “big hat.” Despite the loveliness of the decorations, it is believed that Nim Li Punit was purely a ceremonial site for royal religious burials and other rituals.
