Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins

Explore Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins

Cahal Pech, meaning "Place of Ticks" in the Maya language is located on a hill overlooking the beautiful town of San Ignacio Belize. The vast contrast from town life to a rich jungle environment is evident here, and makes Cahal Pech a unique Mayan Ruin to visit. 34 structures make up the site's center around several courtyards, including residential structures and temple pyramids. It is believed that Cahal Pech is one of the earliest Maya settlements in Belize, with evidence that it was inhabited around 1200 B.C. and abandoned around 850 A.D. Another evidence that supports the theory of Cahal Pech Mayan Ruin being one of the earliest settlements is a carved Mayan monument discovered and is said to be one of the earliest caved stelae to be found in the easter Maya lowlands.
