This major Maya ceremonial center means “Great Mound,” and the top of the pyramid is the highest point in the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts.
Twin ceremonial groups are connected by a sacbe (raised causeway). The center catered to a thriving population in the Late Pre-Classic and Late Classic Periods (350 B.C.–A.D. 250 and A.D. 600–900, respectively) and controlled an area of about 12 square miles. Nohmul was named by the people living in the vicinity of the site.
Not much has been consolidated for tourists here. The entrance to the site is about 10 miles north of Orange Walk Town, in the sugarcane fields west of the village of San Pablo; it is one mile from the center of the village. Public transportation from Belize City , Orange Walk Town , and Corozal  passes through the village of San Pablo several times daily.
