Santo Tomas Quirigua Maya City & Jade Museum

Your experience will begin as you travel along a scenic drive through the Guatemalan countryside and arrive at the famous Mayan Archeological site of Quirigua, home of the tallest stelaes of the Maya world.

The hieroglyphics sculpted in these stelaes recount the history between this city and the archeological site of Copan Honduras.

At the site of Quirigua, you'll learn of its interesting culture while viewing the extraordinary monuments such as the twelve carved stelae, zoomorphy and temples. The richness of the site is its stone monuments which are some of the most beautiful sculptures of the Mayan Art.

For shopping, there is a new Jade Museum at Quirigua.
