Cahal Pech

6th May 2010

Belize-Cahel-PechOn the outskirts of San Ignacio in Cayo, Cahal Pech is believed to be the oldest known Mayan site in the Belize River valley, with first signs of settlement dating back to almost 1500BC. Most of what remains today is dated back to AD 600-800, when its farming population was believed to be around 10,000.

It is a quiet, shady and less frequented site and boasts a decent visitor center detailing the history of the site.
