Chocolate Making & Nim Li Punit

This adventure takes you on a 90-minute ride through rural Belize where you will see the Garifuna, the Mestizo, and the modern day Maya communities.


We will visit the “factory” in which IXCACAO Maya Belizean Chocolate has been made since 1985. This is a small family operation in the Community of San Felipe Village. The chocolate was originally under the name of Cyrila’s Chocolate. On 12-21-2012, Cyrila’s Chocolate was given a new name in commemoration of the end of the Maya calendar. The new name, IXCACAO Maya Belizean Chocolate, translates to “Queen of Cacao”, the Goddess of Fertility and Happiness in the Maya Ke’kchi dialect. IXCACAO is the only Maya Chocolatier in the Country of Belize and Juan is prepared to take you through the making of chocolate as if you were back in 1500 AD, using stone tools that have  been passed down from generation to generation. You will find yourself immersed in the cultural experience of the origination of IXCACAO chocolate.


Enjoy Belizean cuisine at a local Belizean restaurant followed by a visit to the ancient Maya city of Nim Li Punit. This Maya Ruin has an ancient Maya ball court, astronomical observatory, precious artifacts and huge stone monuments (stelae). These monuments were used to commemorate and record important political events such as alliances, wars and battles, family trees, and visits from official delegations from surrounding cities.

After our journey back in time, we will break for lunch at a local restaurant in the village of San Jose Succotz. Thereafter, we will begin our trip back to Placencia, passing through Belmopan, the capital city of Belize. We will also stop at the Inland Blue Hole for a quick refreshing dip. This is a full day of adventure and you will learn a great deal about Central Belize.
