Aguateca Archaeological Site Tours
The little-touristed ruins of Aguateca Archaeological Site are worth the long trip for at least three reasons. First, to get here, you’ll traverse Petexbatún Wildlife Refuge, a birders paradise of mangroves and marshlands, in a motorized canoe. Second, the city was abandoned so suddenly, during a massive attack in 830AD, that everyday relics were preserved Pompeii-style, in place, offering archaeologists an unprecedented look at everyday Mayan life.
Address: Monumento Cultural Aguateca, Peten, Guatemala
