Day 1: Welcome to Belize | Punta Gorda
Day 2: Explore Maya Ruins | Blue Creek Cave | Creole Drum Lesson
Begin today venturing off into the pristine rainforest in Toledo. Explore the ancient Maya Ruins of Nim Li Punit. A medium sized archaeological site from the Maya Classic Period, Nim Li Punit consists of structures surrounding three plazas, including several step pyramids, the tallest being over 12 meters (40 feet) high. You will visit the onsite museum with many of the stelae protected there from Toledo rain.
Your next stop is the cooling waters and great formations of Blue Creek Cave. Also known as the Hokeb Ha Cave system, Blue Creek Cave was formed over 200 million years ago and today it has a river emerging from the south of the cave. This is where you and your guide will jump in refreshing waters and swim or float inside the cave. You will discover unique limestone formations on your journey into the cave. Thereafter, travel to either the Rio Blanco Waterfall or San Antonio Waterfall to swim in the pools below the cascading flow of freshwater. Enjoy a hearty picnic under shady trees on huge limestone boulders. There are many species of birds and butterflies flying around and your guide will be on the lookout for the best displays to point out to you.
In the evening, enjoy a hearty dinner and entertaining drumming performance as you learn about the Creole culture of Belize at the Maroon Creole Drum School. Overnight at your hotel in Punta Gorda.
