We can organize your guided tour to these, some of the most important sites in Peten, Guatemala:

                                               THE EL TINTAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

An archaeological site, reaching 9 kilometers in size with more than 850 structures, El Tintal is majestic. The site sits next to a causeway, which leads first to La Danta, the tallest pyramid of the Mayan world, and then onto Pyramid 1 at Nakbé. Two particularly monumental buildings are Eneken and the Island Development. From Eneken, which just 300m from the centre of El Tintal stands 60m tall, it is possible to observe the pyramid of La Danta, located at El Mirador, and also structure 1 Nakbé. The forest here reaches up to 40m in height.

                                            ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES "TINTAL AND THE DEAD"

The path to El Tintal begins by walking along the 28km long Mayan Causeway that goes on to El Mirador. Half of the causeway is exposed. Along the route you’ll find the archeological site, La Muerta, which contains two important structures. Here you can see a petroglyph (a rock carving), which contains the glyph associated with El Mirador. There is also a stone carving, without an inscription, which is aligned in the direction of the path that leads to the largest pyramid of the ancient world, La Danta. Along the route, it’s possible to see many different species of animals, especially if the day is fresh.

                                          EL MIRADOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

After two hours walking on from El Tintal, it is possible to see El Tigre complex. First, visit the group of pyramids the Apes, located 10 minutes from camp, these have an exceptional panoramic view. Then move on to the Jaguar Claw temple, and the Monkey group. In the latter you can see painted masks that are over three meters long and two meters wide, their subject matter reflecting the name of the pyramid. Finally, you’ll head to El Tigre, another incredible structure. It is believed that the last battle of the Maya of El Mirador against Teotihuacan took place here. It’s the perfect spot from which to see sunrise and sunset.

                                                   Nakbé ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

Nakbé means "on the road or along the road" in Maya; the city was built over 3,000 years ago, and is connected to El Mirador by a road 15 kilometres long. Arriving at Nakbé you can scale structure 1 and again see La Danta, which sits in the distance, separated by a green ocean of jungle. Nakbé was a pre-Mirador city, and although there has not been extensive restoration here, the masks and ornate architecture are particularly note-worthy. It is only possible to stay at the site using tents, and there is no water for showering available except when there is heavy rain.

                                                       Wakná ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

A recently discovered archaeological site, where archaeologists discovered a ransacked tomb from the mid-Classic period. The tomb was notable for the hidden older inscriptions which were found on its walls. The first systematic excavations were conducted here in 2002. It is an important site from the Middle Pre-classic period (800 BC), an era which has not been well studied. The site is at least as large as Tikal. There are ball courts and a large group of structures, E, which are around 400m long. There are also mural paintings similar to those found at San Bartolo, from the start of the Late Pre-Classic (300 BC), which is located at the south of the Mirador and northeast of El Tintal and Xunal.

                                                      LA FLORIDA ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

Florida is unlike most other sites at El Mirador. Despite only a small community living here during the Pre-Classic period (180 BC - 250 AD), this residential site had its largest population in the Classic period (350 BC - 150 AD). One of the unique features of La Florida is its architecture; both masonic construction and vaulted ceilings. These vaults are present in four buildings on this site. Although there are not pyramidal structures in La Florida, there are several palatial buildings. La Florida has a natural water supply for nine months of the year, which is located to northeast of the structures.
