Here we have entered Guatemala's northeast jungle Peten region. The descendants of the Maya of Chichen Itza migrated to the Peten area several centuries after the collapse of the great Mayan cities in the Yucatan.

The area is also ideal for outdoor pursuits like swimming, fishing, wind surfing, hiking, bird watching, kayaking, and horseback riding.
