Archaeological Sites in Guatemala

Guatemala’s archeological sites helped put the country on the map. From the dense forests of Petén to the banana plantations near Lake Izabal, there are exquisite Mayan ruins most everywhere in Guatemala. Some have been well excavated, while others are only now beginning to be unearthed. The sites host temples and pyramids, hieroglyphic staircases and hidden underground chambers. The structures are endlessly fascinating.
