Kaminaljuy˙ Archaeological Ruins:

Kaminaljuy˙, pronounced "KAH mee nahl hoo yoo".

This site was first reported by Alfred P. Maudsley in the late nineteenth century. Kaminaljuy˙ was made up of over 200 structures in an area of approximately 5 square kilometers, making it the largest site in the Guatemalan highlands. Much of the site has been covered by modern day Guatemala City, but part of it still remains as mounds. Most items recovered from Kaminaljuy˙ are at the museums, including the Museo Popol Vuh.

There are many buildings at the site and all were made of adobe which is unusual. Most of the buildings were destroyed by the encroaching neighborhoods. What remains is enclosed in a park. Some of the remaining site has been excavated and it is worth visiting. It is under a tin roof protected area and you can visit the area for a small fee. It does not make dramatic impression like Tikal does, but it is worth the visit to look at the mounds of this ancient Pre-Classic Ruins in Guatemala City.

This site dates back possibly to the early Preclassic period (800 BCE-300 CE), but by its end, the city was abandoned. During the Early Classic (300-600CE), it became a major center and soon came under the influence of Teotihuacan and remained so until around the end of that era. The city has been described by some as a miniature Teotihuacßn and it clearly had ties to that city so far to the north. In fact, it was abandoned at about the same time that Teotihuacan collapsed.

A new museum has opened called the Museo Miraflores. They have wonderful displays dedicated to the city of Kaminaljuy˙. The museum is certainly worth the visit.

We arranged a tour through Clark Tours for a half day. It was certainly worth the price.

We suggest getting a hotel in Guatemala and then letting them arrange either a car or a tour of Guatemala. We prefer Clark Tours, who have been in business for over 80 years. If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Guatemala. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!
