This is an unknown but really important archaological site in the middle of not-such-a-great neighborhood in Guatemala City. They are actively uncovering Mayan ruins and have a small visitor's center describing their work. The grounds are also beautiful and often used for both Christian and...More

This Maya ruins are close to the center, just 15 min. with a taxi. It is worthwhile seeing it. The ruins are not massively big, but you get a first impression of the culture, especially if you don't have time to travel through Guatemala! The...More

Is incredible that most guatemalan´s havent visited! Is not TIKAL, but is 15 minutes from the airport and you can see some unearthened structures! Many years ago you could access even deeper into the structures... but it is still worth a visit
