Although many Maya ruins are quite ancient, the Maya culture has survived to the present day. This culture has a strong representation in the western highlands. There are several villages surrounding Lake Atitlán where you can see modern Maya practicing their religion and hear the Mayan language spoken. The largest groups of modern Maya are the K’iche’, the Kaqchikel, and the Mam.
