Zaculeu Ruins

During the tour we will visit Chivacave, a farm where the best cheese in Huehuetenango is prepared.

One of the most curious things is that there have been prehistoric animal fossils dating back millions of years, found here.

Some of these remains are in the museum, where you can admire Mastodon bones and molars, and several bones of Glyptodonts, as well as, other prehistoric animals. After Chivacave, we head to the capital of the Mames: Zaculeu.

Zaculeu was a religious and administrative center for the elite of that time, built in a strategic location that served as a natural defense to protect tits citizens from enemies. In Zaculeu, we will learn about one of the largest Maya cities of the region, visit temples and explore a museum.
