Because we knew about this site before we took our trip, it was on our bucket list because of its status as a very influential pre-classic site. I wish more objects where left in place in the little on site museum instead of having to travel to the Popo Vuhul Museum and others to see what was found there. I also wish there were more explanations available of how they build in the early time period of its settlement versus later. After being at Tikal it's a big step down, but understanding how much older it is would give a better perspective.

The area is not fully excavated so one does not see a great deal of the old city. However, what is present is quite interesting. The grounds are used by families and worshipers on Sundays and I presume other days of the week. We had a great visit and recommend this site.

It is amazingly kept between all of this years, you can learn how the late pre-classic Mayan empire was starting :)

It’s a small place to see some exacted site and locals carrying out mayan ceremony. It is not worth the ticket price. Foreigners pay 10 times that of the local price. I wasn’t impressed with the area after having been to Tikal.

I guess if you don't have the chance/time to visit the more famous Mayan sites, this will do. The museum is really small, so is the Acropole but overall is nice. The park is well kept for the most part and you will see many families spending time together. The entrance fee for a foreigner is 50Q which is 10 times more than what the locals are paying, but this is how things work in Guatemala. I hope they will focus on developing this site in the future, it certainly has potential.

Learned something new here. Didn't know about ancient adobe construction in Central America. Nice spot to reflect on how far we've come and the things we don't know.

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 Mayan ceremonies. Well worth a visit.

One of the most important archaeological sites of the Valley of Guatemala holding the deep past in its ancient constructions that once spread out around this area. The work at this site is important and the honoring of its long prehistory relevant to our world today.

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 one room museum is showing some artefacts. We were there on a Sunday. The park area was frequented by many locals. We saw some shaman doing their cultural rituals. That gave this location a very unique touch.

Just minutes from hotel Tikal Futura, is located this beautiful atraction where you can see excavations showing guatemalans daily life from long time ago, Synchronizing catholic religion with mayan beliefs are routinely performed daily by the native guatemalan folks who adhere to old ancient traditions, at this site. This was a survival way to appease the spaniards.
