    El Mirador Jungle Tour

    “Embark on the El Mirador Jungle Trek and journey through time in the vast pre-Columbian Mayan settlement of El Mirador, nestled in northern Peten. Thriving from the 6th century B.C. and reaching its zenith between the 3rd century B.C. and the 1st century A.D., this ancient city once pulsated with a population of over a hundred thousand, evidenced by the colossal structures crafted by a substantial labor force.”
