mayan ruins

This place was amazing. I always thought there was only a few of these in remote areas. But it is a whole city of ruins distributed through the woods and on old street. You can see stones from the ruins reused in buildings in the little towns. Nothing goes to waste. It is a very poor surrounding area. The spanish conquistadors seemed to homogenized with the mayan people and it is very much a blend of cultures, but you do see quite a few mayan descendents with destinct characteristics. When was the last time you saw a native american?
