Cahal Pech

The main attraction in the town. Cahal Pech is a smallish set of Mayan ruins that were abandoned around 800-900 AD. There is an indoor museum displaying artifacts, a site plan, and information on the ruins in a regional context. There are, allegedly, guided tours, but these are unneeded, as the site is easy to traverse. The entire site should take 1-2 hours at most for a thorough exploration. Once at the ruins, the site is fairly flat, but Cahal Pech is at the top of the hill overlooking San Ignacio. The walk uphill to it from the main town is quite exhausting and is difficult even from the San Ignacio Resort Hotel on the hill. If you have any disability, or are in poor physical condition, you will want to drive.

we will see

Orange Walk Town

Belize
Orange Walk Town is the capital of the Orange Walk district 57 miles north of Belize City. The agricultural town is not a tourist hotspot but a good base for explorations of Northern Belize and the Mayan ruins Lamanai.

Personal note

A day trip to go bird watching and see the Lamanai ruins is a must-do. You'll travel to Lamanai along the river, and its the river and all the wildlife (bats, tiger herons, spider monkeys..) you'll see that will be the most memorable.
