Cahal Pech (Place of Ticks)
A Maya temple situated in the midst of a present-day town makes Cahal Pech different from other Maya sites in Belize.
Located in San Ignacio, along the banks of the Macal River in the Cayo District, Cahal Pech was a ceremonial center with temples, palaces and a ball court. The site offers you a spectacular panoramic view of San Ignacio and the Belize River Valley.
When you go …
Cahal Pech is only a short 10-minute walk from the town’s center with a hilltop visitor center, providing you a great introduction to life as it was at Cahal Pech.
