was a Major Maya Ceremonial Center ....
Cahal Pech's late pre-classic temples
and two separate ball courts display fine examples of
Maya craftsmanship, suggesting this site was a hilltop
residence of royalty and their cadre.
800 AD, the site consists of 34
structures on two acres. Located on a hill overlooking
San Ignacio. The caretaker or a guide can show
you around and answer your questions. Tours last 45-60
A visitors' center contains artifacts
and a reconstructed model of the site. The center is open Monday through Saturday. Small admission fees to enter the site and museum.
Pech Archeological Site is a good
place to take in some Birding.
See our Cayo Activities & Tours page for more ideas.
Getting There ....
It's a 15-20
minute uphill walk or an inexpensive cab ride from
downtown San Ignacio.
