Explore Mixco Viejo and Relive the Times of the Mayan Civilization

Mixco Viejo is an archaeological site in the north east of the Chimaltenango department of Guatemala, some 50 kilometres to the north of Guatemala City. Join us on a full-day tour as we bring you to explore this tourist attraction – we promise you nothing but an enriching day of fun!

Named after being erroneously associated with the Postclassic Poqomam capital referred to in colonial records by that name, Mixco Viejo is a moderate-sized ruined city of the Postclassic Maya civilization, and is the last city of the Kaqchikel who fight against the conquers. You will start off either from Antigua or Guatemala City, and be driven 2 hours to El Quiché, where the old city hides in the mountains. Once you arrive, a guide will bring you around the ruins with a full historical recount of the Spanish conquest.

Lunch will be inside the ruins over the top of a pyramid – where you can take in a spectacular view of the mountains – before ending the tour and being driven back to Guatemala City or Antigua.
