Journey back in time at Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins & Museum, one of the oldest Mayan sites in Belize. Consisting of over 30 structures, the ruins once served as the hilltop home of an elite Mayan ruling family. Wander freely through the site's many tunnels, climbing the buildings and exploring their nooks and crannies. Check out the visitor centre, where artists’ impressions of the settlement in its heyday give you sense of what life was once like here. Make sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and bug spray.
