Map of Mayan Cities & Archaeological Sites
This map of Mayan cities and ruins was collected whilst travelling through Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador in 2001. The map shows all the notable cities in the Mayan regions (Mundo Maya) from the Pre-Classic Era through to the Post-Classic Era.
Despite its age, this map of ancient Mayan cities and ruins remains an excellent tool for planning archeological tours. The larger icons represent more spectacular Mayan ruins and archaeological sites, which are highly recommended. These sites are either of significant size or historical importance (or both). Most comfortably take a whole day to visit properly. However, some that are close together can be combined in a day’s sightseeing.
The smaller icons on the Mundo Maya map are sites that can be visited, but are of less significance. You can fit three or four of these into a single day as they only take an hour or so to enjoy. They are ideal if you are travelling nearby and have time to break your journey.
