Punta De Chimones

About 4km north of Aguateca is Punta de Chimino. This peninsula served as the last barrier of defense for the local Mayan population. It was once home to a manmade fortress with trenches and ramparts to keep back northern invaders. The ruins of such defences have almost disappeared and only mounds and barely recognizable remnants can be seen. However, Punto de Chimino is still a beautiful part of the Petén jungle that’s well worth a visit. The area is also home to the renowned Chiminos Island Lodge; thatched bungalows with hot-water bathrooms and lake views give weary travelers a sense of luxury in the jungle.



Other neighborhoods in Sayaxché: Ceibal, Laguna Petexbatún , Aguateca and Dos Pilas .
