El Peten, in northeast of Guatemala, represents the largest tropical forest in Central America, containing ruins, great and small, from the ancient Maya civilization. The crown jewel among Peten’s 13,000 square miles is Tikal, a sprawling complex of more than 3,000 structures. The ruins of Ceibal, Aguateca, and Yaxha contribute to Peten’s standing as the heartland of the Maya. Countless more ruins still lie shrouded by overgrown dense forest Peten, which contains over 800 species of trees, 57 species of reptiles, and 500 species of birds. Tapirs, Peccararies and Jaguars still roam the emerald forests, just as they did when the ancient Maya ruled the region.
