Mayan Ceremonial Circle Altar

A short video showing the Mayan ceremonial area with a circular altar. Lovely location, right next to Lake Atitlan and in full view of the three volcanoes. I'm sure the location has ancient significance but the altar itself is quite modern, made of bricks and mortar. I like the carved faces and symbols around the edge. Super cool.

If you're in Panajachel and want to see it, go across the river to Jucanya and down Calle de Los Salpores to the beach at the end. Turn left and walk walk walk walk past the decrepit basketball court and the boat yard and the playground of painted tires. Eventually, you'll see it on your right, can't miss it!
Afterwards, keep going and turn left up the sharply inclined alley. At the top is the beautiful cemetery, which I blogged about in this post from 2015. Enjoy!

P.S. Can you believe it's MARCH??
