El Pilar Mayan Ruins

San Ignacio, Belize

Practical Info

El Pilar is approximately 12 miles north of San Ignacio and about 20 miles from Melchor de Mencos. Wear loose and lightweight clothing that covers legs and arms. Bring sunblock and insect repellent as you will be hiking through the jungle. Be aware that most structures are still covered, and the only visible elements may be a doorjamb or room. Visitors hoping for fully excavated, towering ruins should consider tours to other sites like Xunantunich or Caracol. Travelers interested in birding should also bring their own binoculars.
