Tipu is a Mayan archaeological site in the Maya Mountains near the Belize–Guatemala border in the Cayo district. This site was a post classic ceremonial complex situated near the Macal River. Further downstream is located the Mayan site of Chaa Creek and slightly further downstream is the site of Cahal Pech. The variety of artifacts found at Tipu clearly marks the site as an active center of trade. Tipu was also a center of Maya intellectual and religious activity.
