Photo Dump: Cahal Pech

Hello, Globetrotters!

I had so much fun making the photo dump for Tikal that I decided to share with you some photos from our visit to Cahal Pech.

Cahal Pech is a Mayan historic site located just outside of San Ignacio, Belize. It’s within walking distance of town, so it’s super accessible if you’re staying in San Ignacio or visiting for the day. You can learn more about getting around San Ignacio in my destination guide.

Cahal Pech is one of the oldest Mayan sites in Western Belize. The name “Cahal Pech” means “Place of the Ticks” in the Yucatec Maya language. The historic site was the home of a wealthy Mayan family, although it is believed to have been inhabited continuously from 1200 BCE to the Classic period. There is a museum on-site where tourists can learn about the history of Cahal Pech before exploring the ruins independently.

Please enjoy!
