The area was a jungle, very remote and deserted. Our guide pointed out different types of trees, fruit indigenous to the area. When we arrived at the ruins, we were the only ones there! He gave some historical background and helped us take photos. There was the big Temple of the Masonry Altars, which we were able to climb (precarious steep steps, don't attempt if you are afraid of heights) up to the sacrificial level...it was amazing to think that 10,000 people inhabited this site, apparently in 900 BC (not exactly sure about the date, but I remember it being an astonishingly long time ago!).
On our way back, our guide stopped by a local supermarket where we bought some local herbs. We bought some small bags of 'Feva Grass Leaves,' dried grass-like leaves to drink with hot water. Smells wonderful, just like lemon tea. Our guide said it cleanses your system.
