  • The Mayan museum is an impressive place. Inside there are several rooms dedicated to the exhibition of objects that were part of the daily life of the Maya, in addition to that there are also some rooms dedicated to expose a little about the history of other cultures close to the Maya. The place is new and is very well conditioned and it is comfortable to be here. Behind the museum is the San Miguelito Site, which is a great place to meet after being in the museum
  • The outdoor Eco park is fantastic. See it fully thru to see the pyramid. Well worth it. The museum itself is a bit disappointing as majority of the artifact info is all in Spanish. The artifacts are quite stunning though. I hope they can rectify this issue in the future.
