Overview

Immerse yourself in the fascinating history of ancient Mayan culture on this day trip to the archeological ruins of Mixco Viejo from Antigua. See unique, impressive Mayan ruins and discover their history and significance from your expert guide.

After pickup from your Antigua hotel, venture west approximately 2.5 hours to the town of Chimaltenango. Wedged between deep ravines, Mixco Viejo was once known as an important religious and military Maya city and the capital of the Poqomam Maya kingdom. The site is now divided into different groups and contains more than 120 major structures, including temples, palaces and ball courts, where an ancient Mesoamerican ballgame sport was played.

As you walk through the archeological site, your guide will teach you about the significance of the pyramids and temples, including Pyramid A1, which is the main pyramid, and Pyramid B3, which are twin structures built on a single platform.

After a guided tour of these fascinating ruins, take a lunch break (own expense) and enjoy free time to explore more of the site at your leisure. Afterwards, you’ll be transported back to your Antigua hotel.
