A great place to experience ancient Mayan ruins. The location is huge with a museum in the front to provide additional information and artifacts. Best part is that you are allowed to walk through, climb up the stairs and into the rooms all throughout the ruins. I had a great time here and got some amazing pictures!

This was one of the smaller ruins I visited while in Belize but I loved how you had free range to go and do what you wanted unlike some of the other sites. It is very beautiful and I would definitely go back in a heartbeat! Just make sure to keep an eye out for many creatures... bats, spiders, and snakes!

Out of all the ruins sites we visited, this was most active work in progress. We saw some already uncovered and partially restored buildings, as well as maintenance going on with other parts, and a hill being actively uncovered. We watched as sifting and documenting and graphing were happening and it gave a whole new perspective to the masses of ruins that have already been uncovered.

Cahal Pech is, as most will tell you, smaller than other sites. It is however easy to reach on foot if you're staying in San Ignacio. There is a big hill to climb so be prepared to sweat on hot days. I would suggest visiting the museum entrance and reading up on the structures. Overall its a great place to visit.
