Cahal Pech is just a 20-minute walk from San Ignacio and overlooks the town. This is a mid-sized Mayan complex that has undergone extensive restoration. Cahal Pech means “place of ticks” in modern-day Maya, and refers to the fact that the surrounding area was once used as pasture land. However, this was the royal acropolis-palace of an elite Mayan ruling family who lived here during the Classic period.
