Home >> Guatemala >> Ceibal


The impressive ruins of Ceibal are upriver from Sayaxche & served as a tollgate for barges running the river in ancient Maya times. It's beauty has much to do with it's jungle surroundings of the rainforest's seemingly infinite web of life. The site's archaelogical attractions include many restored temples, plazas & intricately carved stelae, each of which show a profound influence predominantly from the Toltecs. The stelae are some of the best preserved from the Late Classic period.
