Now we get to some amazing photos so be sure to click through - In Belize, we visited the Mayan ruins site of Cahal Pech, located in the western town of San Ignacio. Clusters of temples and palaces circle a series of plazas, and the residences suggest it served as a royal compound. It was amazing to be able to climb and walk on the structures. The steps were so steep, the Mayans, who were a much shorter people, must have had a time of it.
This stone bench built into the wall would have been covered in animal skins/furs ... it was a bed.
The doorways were also pretty short, another proof that these were a shorter people. HEY maybe I'm just a tall Mayan?
It was also HOT like you wouldn't believe. There were a couple people who appeared pretty close to heat stroke. We were very happy to be back on our bus after the adventure.
Next stop, Cozumel. Farewell Belize......
