What is this?
This blog is dedicated entirely to supply up-to-date information on visiting the archeological site of El Mirador in Guatemala. Since I spend most of my time trekking in Petén, I don´t have the time or energy to construct a proper homepage. The little tidbits of info I collected over the years will all be posted here eventually. Available information in English is abundant about El Mirador, but scarce about how to exactly get there. This means that travel agencies and local guides can sell you just about anything, cashing in on the fact that most people are a bit afraid of jungles. This blog will hopefully lift the veil, and help future independent hikers in visiting these magnificent ruins without the usual Central American hassle and over-inflated prices.
