CAHAL PECH MAYA TEMPLES AND TROPICAL WINGS:
Black Rock Lodge, travel to the Mayan village of San Jose
Succotz on the banks of the Mopan River. Board a small hand-cranked
pontoon ferry to cross the river to Xunantunich (shoo-nan-too-nitch)
Maya Ruin. After exploring the site, drive a short distance
to the Tropical Wings Butterfly Research Center. See over
a dozen species of Belizean butterflies. Then drive to the
outskirts of San Ignacio to one of the most architecturally
diverse Maya Ruins in Belize: Cahal Pech (ka-hall pet-ch).
Climb though the ruins, see examples of the “corbelled” arch
(the Maya’s version of the Roman arch), and view 2,000 year
old red plaster still intact on the walls.
