The Chaa Creek National Park is a large nature reserve offering a spectacular panorama of the Macal River Valley. Situated in the San Ignacio region, not far from the Guatemalan border, the area is well-known for its numerous Mayan sites. The most impressive of these are found at Cahal Pech; 34 structures located around several courtyards, including temples, pyramids and residential buildings. Set along the Macal River, the reserve is full of caves, such as the famous Actun Tunichil Muknal (often called "ATM Caves"), which is one of the most impressive and artifact-rich Maya ceremonial caves ever found. The Barton Creek Cave attracts rafting and canoe lovers. Chaa Creek's miles of lush and well maintained trails are also perfect for lots of adventure activities such as horseback riding, mountain biking, potholing and hiking.
