I visited Quirigua while driving from Tikal back to Guatemala City. There are no large temples like Tikal or Copan, to which this site is related, but the stellas are larger and more complex than you will see at either site. To get the most...More

Relatively small site but with important and impressive stelles. Visit the small museum at the entrance behind the shops. It gives you an idea of how the site was found and how the stelles used to look like
