Cahal Pech

Cahal Pech is a relatively small complex of ruins a 25 minute walk outside of San Ignacio. After going to church in town, with few buses running on the Sunday afternoon, I decided to check it out. Because Cahal Pech doesn’t receive heavy tourist traffic in comparison to Altun Ha or Lamanai, the ruins seemed much more accessible. Exploring the visitors center and site was enjoyable, and the friendly dog that insisted on being a tour guide was a definite highlight. I also got the chance to talk to an archaeologist from the University of Texas who had been working on the skeletons at Actun Tunichil Muknal the previous day.
