CAHAL PECH (Half day tour) – Its English translation meaning Place of the Ticks, Cahal Pech is one of the oldest Maya sites in Belize. It represents a medium-sized Maya Civilization located on top of one of the biggest hills in the charming town of San Ignacio boasting a magnificent view of the river valley and the exotic Maya Mountains. The site was occupied pretty much continuously between 900 B.C. and A.D. 800, from the Early Formative to Late Classic periods. Temples left of the acropolis area of the regional center include 34 Classic period structures around seven plazas, six plain stelae, an altar, and two ball courts. Recent excavations at Cahal Pech were conducted as part of Archaeology Magazine’s Online Digs, under the project called Maya Caves of West-Central Belize, led by Jaime Awe.
