INFORMACIÓN GENERAL :::


The Nimli Punit Visitor center is an on site museum at the ancient Maya site of Nimli Punit (Big Hat). This site located in the Toledo district near the modern day Maya village of Indian Creek is famous for its large number of carved monuments, twenty six total. The site was settled around the middle Preclassic (A.D. 400-700) and saw its demise around 900 A.D. This Visitor Center explores the long history of the ancient Maya site of Nimli Punit and features several stelae, including a recently uncovered monument that provides details about the political history of the site. The stela number 22 commemorates the completion of Katun 18 under the rulership of Lord K’awil Hat K’inich. It describes an event of bloodletting or incense scattering in which Lord K’awil Hat K’inich went to Copan (Honduras) to conduct rituals in the company of the Kings of Copan.

The Visitor Center is open every day 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Admission is $2.50 US.
