Settled in 1200 B.C. and abandoned around 850 A.D., Cahal Pech is one of the earliest Mayan sites in Belize and was once the palatial home of an elite Mayan family.
Your journey to this incredible site begins as you are picked up by your expert tour guide in Belize City at your Hotel, the Municipal air strip or the Water Taxi Terminal. Take a few minutes to marvel at the colonial architecture and city highlights, then pass small farms and charming Creole villages as you make your way to Cahal Pech.
Upon arrival, your Belize tour guides will lead you through the myriad of courtyards, temples, and residential buildings that make up the Cahal Pech compound. This site contains an impressive 34 buildings, including a structure that is 23.5m (77 ft) high. Gaze up at a monument that was the earliest carved stelae discovered in this area of the Mayan lowlands. Don't leave the site before climbing up one of the temples for beautiful, panoramic views of the compound, as well as the city of San Ignacio in the distance.
