Have you heard of Cahal Pech? This ancient palatial compound of an elite aristocratic Mayan family is an excellent place for birdwatching in Belize, as the morning mist rises over the various temples and courtyards – built over several centuries spanning from 1000 B.C. to 800 A.D. Join us on a half-day birdwatching tour, as we offer you a chance to see a vast variety of tropical bird species – including hummingbirds, parrots, birds of prey and other colorful migratory birds.
Cahal Pech, situated on the highest hill overlooking modern-day San Ignacio, is also known as the “House of Ticks” – a name given in the 1950s when the area was used for grazing cattle. This 2-acre serene jungle close to San Ignacio is not only rich in ancient artifacts and structures, but also in wildlife.
Your birdwatching tour in Belize is not complete without a morning spent in this out-of the-world environment, where this Cahal Pech birdwatching tour will allow you glimpses of the cultural past of this ancient landscape.
