Cahal Pech

First Maya settlement in the region

Cahal Pech, is a small yet intriguing archaeological site that sits just outside the beautiful town of San Ignacio. Cahal Pech meaning “Place of Ticks,” depicts interesting stories of our ancestors. The Site holds 34 large buildings, and it has 8 interconnected plazas containing pyramids, temples, stelae, ballcourts, and elite residences.

As little as it can be, the walls of Cahal Pech hold lifelong history. Each telling a different story. Entering the main plaza, curiosity is what fills our mind as we walk through its maze of interconnected rooms. Cahal Pech provides an excellent example of the Mayas architecture. Just by looking at the manmade structures, we can easily visualize the life once lived hundreds of years ago. There’s plenty more to be explored, plenty more to learn and plenty more to live throughout this two-hour tour. Let our guide Agusto enlighten you as we discover the past.
