During this One Day Tour you will have the chance to visit the mysterious Archaeological site of Mixco Viejo, located in Chimaltenango about 2 1/2 hours away from Antigua or Guatemala City.
It is a moderate sized ruined city of the Postclassic Maya Civilization.
The ruins are surrounded by deep ravines dropping off sharply into a tributary of the Pixcaya River. It´s a really nice tour that most of the tourists don´t visit, and has a very important history.
