I finally made it to visit the relief map after years of hearing about it. I is a pretty cool side trip in the city, and worth pondering all the work that was involved in creating it. There are other things to do in the area; visit an American style baseball park, kids amusement park, the Gallo beer brewery. Admission... More

This is definitely one of the highlights in the city. Mind boggling it was done in the early 1900's to scale without the benefit of modern equipment.

Interesting to see but that's all there is in the area. The place is dirty and tourists get hassled by sellers of a lot of stuff. If you happen to be near, check it out. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

This relief map is truly an amazing visit. It was done before modern technology was available and took many years to complete. It is a scaled replica of the country of Guatemala. Visitors will understand the lay of the land of Guatemala after a visit to this site. I would recommend coming here first thing during a trip to Guatemala... More

It's a good way to learn a bit of the Geography of Guatemala. It's a huge map and you can check where you've been, it also has a little forest, so it's a nice place to visit

Our trip to Guatemala was mainly humanitarian dental service. Turns out that the Clinica de Tio Juan where were for a week is just across the street from the map and park. The park is a nice peaceful place to walk around - obviously has seen better days, but it also looks like they are working on getting it back... More

Got recommended to go here by a previous visitor and wasn´t let down. A great way to get to understand the two distinct parts of Guatemala and see in a different way how the country is set within multiple borders and how high the mountains are. In addition very good local guides (we had 2, one for Spanish and one... More

I have been travelling to Guate off and on for almost 20 years and never knew this existed until this trip. Quite interesting and put the terrain of the country into context for me.

This map is an outstanding achievement due to a great cientist and hardworker: Francisco Vela. This engineer, with a staff of helpers, designed this map of Guatemala, including every major feature in their detailed replica.
