Visit Elijio Panti National Park (known to the local Maya as Noj Kaax Panti National Park) for a lengthy hike or horseback ride to reach an extraordinary sacred Maya Ceremonial Cave.

Named after Eligio Panti, the famed Guatemala-born herbal healer who died in 1996 at the age of 106, the Park spans about 13,000 acres and offers a seemingly endless array of jungle beauty for the hiker or rider. For the physically-fit, non-claustrophobic adventurer who seeks a challenging but worthwhile experience, a guided exploration of this Cave is unforgettable. 

Degree of Difficulty: Advanced.

If time and energy permits, extend your experience to visit Saktaj Waterfalls, a beautiful waterfall with multiple pools. On return to the Visitors Center, there is yet another recently open cave with numerous Maya artifacts.
