Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, & Chocolate Making Tour

Located on a hill overlooking San Ignacio, Cahal Pech is a medium-sized but major Mayan center. Situated on top of an acropolis on the Macal River, the center of Cahal Pech consists of 34 structures in a small area of only 2 acres. A visitors’ Center contains artifacts and a reconstructed model of the site. Ajaw Chocolate is a local family owned business which offers a hands-on experience of the traditional chocolate making process while learning about its humble origin and the importance to the Maya Heritage.
