Xunantunich and Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins

A captivating day of archaeological wonders just a stone's throw away from San Ignacio. A mere half-hour drive transports you to the ancient marvel of Xunantunich. Experience a journey back in time as you cross the river on a manually hand-cranked ferry, leading to a towering structure standing at 137 feet. The climb offers breathtaking views, unveiling the neighboring town of Melcher de Menchos in Guatemala. Spend two immersive hours exploring this site before returning to San Ignacio. Next on the itinerary is Cahal Pech, a unique ceremonial site where you walk inside buildings to witness how the Mayan royals once lived. It's a vivid exploration of history and culture in a single day.

Many of our delighted guests often opt for just one Maya site, as this tour can be combined with a half-day Cave Tubing adventure. Priced at $145 USD, this combined tour is not only immensely popular but also promises to be a standout highlight of your stay.
