Cahal Pech translates to “place of ticks”, given this name due to the number of ticks that flourished there when it was a cattle pasture in the 1950’s. This site is situated on a hill overlooking San Ignacio Town. This is one of the earliest Maya sites, being settled by 1200 B.C and abandoned around 850 A.D. Stela 9, a carved monument discovered here is the earliest carved stela yet discovered in the Eastern Maya lowlands.
