T15A – Lubaantun & Nim Li Punit Maya Temples
$116 per person
Lubaantun was first discovered and explored by archaeologists in 1905, one of the few southern maya ruins in Belize. It is an impressive Maya site that was built between 700 and 900 AD as a ceremonial site. The Maya used it for special celebrations including religious ceremonies, Maya games, consecrations and festivals.
Lubaantun is notable among Maya ruins for the unusual way it was built. Constructed of limestone bricks, it was built without mortar. The buildings are also unusual for having rounded corners. You can wander around this huge, peaceful enclave yourself or get a guided tour from the local historical experts at the Visitor’s Center.
This tour then travels the Southern Highway to the foothills of the Maya Mountains and the secluded, inviting Nim Li Punit ruins. This site is slightly smaller than Lubaantun but is equally impressive.
Nim Li Punit was built between 500 and 800 AD. Both of these Maya cities were built during the so-called Classic Period, which is when the Maya had some of their greatest achievements in terms of astronomy, engineering and mathematics. Exploring these ruins gives you a clear and vivid picture of the daily lives of this ancient, advanced civilization.
