Cahal Pech Mayan Site

The Cahal Pech Mayan Site is located on an imposing hill that overlooks the twin towns of San Ignacio/Santa Elena. The name of the site means “Place of Ticks” in the Yucatecan Maya language. This name was coined in the 1950’s when the area around the site was used for pasture.

Xunantunich Mayan site
Xunantunich Mayan ruins are located just to the west of St Ignacio and is located atop a ridge above the Mopan River, well within sight of the Guatemala border – which is a mere 1 kilometer to the west.

It served as a Maya civic ceremonial center in the Late and Terminal Classic periods to the Belize Valley region. At this time, when the region was at its peak, nearly 200,000 people lived in Belize

The largest pyramid, El Castillo, rises 130 feet above the main plaza and offers an impressive Panoramic View of the Belize’s Cayo District and nearby Guatemala.

The Blue Hole National Park

The Blue Hole is actually a sinkhole formed by the collapse of an underground river channel. The exposed section of the underground Cave Branch Creek tributary can be viewed for about 150 feet before it disappears again beneath the surface This National park offers jungle trails and refreshing swimming.

On this tour you go from Hopkins along the southern Highway through the hundreds of acres of citrus plantations and up the famous Hummingbird highway that winds through the Mayan mountains and offers some amazing views of jungle, mountains, rivers, and valleys. The tour then goes past the Capital City Belmopan and then down the western highway to St Ignacio where the Mayan sites are located.

The drive takes approximately 90 mins and it is quite a spectacular ride though Belize’s stunning countryside, villages and towns.
