Aguateca

We leave in the morning headed to the southeast of Petén, where you will take a boat to go by the mystical stream Petexbatun up to the lake of the same name where there is a large amount of wildlife including crocodiles and many fish.

At the end of the lake lies the impressive Maya site of Aguateca which was built in the late classical period when there were many wars. The city is located between a natural cliff and a geological fault, which gave the city a defensive position and view of the area; they also built defensive walls which made the place a fortress. During the walk you will see impressive stelae among the jungle trails and you can also hear the chirping of birds and howl of the monkeys.

90% of the hike is in the shade of the forest. You will take a box lunch to eat at the time desired.
