Settled in 1200 B.C. and abandoned around 850 A.D., Cahal Pech is one of the earliest Mayan sites in Belize and was once the palatial home of an elite Mayan family.

Your journey to this incredible site begins as you are picked up by your expert tour guide at the Belize Cruise Port for a drive into Belize City. Take a few minutes to marvel at the colonial architecture and city highlights, then pass small farms and charming Creole villages as you make your way to Cahal Pech. Upon arrival, your Belize tour guides will lead you through the myriad of courtyards, temples, and residential buildings that make up the Cahal Pech compound. This site contains an impressive 34 buildings, including a structure that is 23.5m (77 ft) high. Gaze up at a monument that was the earliest carved stelae discovered in this area of the Mayan lowlands. Don't leave the site before climbing up one of the temples for beautiful, panoramic views of the compound, as well as the city of San Ignacio in the distance. Conclude your Belize excursion by browsing Mayan artifacts and Belizean collectibles and pick up a souvenir or two before your return back to port. Throughout this tour you will learn the rich history of the Mayas and cultural diversity of Belize.

This tour is a must-do for history buffs and those who are fascinated by Mayan culture. Reserve your spot for this popular tour today.

Although our disembarkation from the MSC was a gong show and we arrived at the shore excursion site an hour late our guide was waiting and provided us with a very good and professional look into the history of Cahal Pech. We received a good tour and were back to the ship in time for the shuttle back to the ship.

Very nice tour. Knowledgeable guide and relatively small group. We learned lots about the Mayan Culture.
