Although the drive was very long on poor roads the trip was worth it. We went with Belize Adventure Trails and had an excellent guide - Oscar. Because it is so remote we found very few people were there. The ruins are very large and...More
By the end of the visit my Fitbit logged us at 58 floors and we didn’t even climb all the pyramids!! It was definitely quite the sire knowing the history- you’ll see lots of monkeys everywhere and beautiful birds and trees.

My girlfriend took me out for my birthday and we went to cahal pech expecting a good experience, but we're disappointed. The service was maybe 3 star and the food about 3 but the drinks were not more than 2. The view is good.
These are smaller ruins, very peaceful and beautiful, small groups, very quiet when we were there. Easy walk for seniors and lots of room to run like crazy for kids. Lots of shade if you need it! The drive up the last few hundred feet...More
right in town! There are areas of shade for relief from the sun. A very nice and informative visitors center with artifacts and a great mural that shows what the area was like in 900 AD. Words cannot really express how grateful I was to...More
This is a great afternoon activity if you’re staying in San Ignacio. We were particularly excited about it because it was accessible without having to book an (expensive) tour for it - you simply follow the road past the police station uphill and the signs...More
No, the ruins are accessible by a path that runs at a good gradient. To full explore the ruins you might struggle up and down some of the steps but from what I remember you can walk around them on a flat surface

I think it opens around 9am and closes sharply at 5pm. Good little tip is to get there around 4:30 and then you can stay as long as you like after it closes. I am almost sure you might be able to visit after it closes. However, it not worth the trip if you have to travel far or have limited time. Go and see Xunantunich, but be warned they will not let you in after 3:30pm even if you're a few minutes late.
If time isn't an issue see Cahal then Xunantunich.

It was a great trip and learned a lot!
