March 6-13, 2023 Itinerary
Southeastern Peten

Our trip dates are March 6 - 13, 2023. Our trip takes us to Copan, Yaxha, Quirigua, and rarely visited sites of the Southeastern Peten Region. We will look at two major wars of the Late Classic Period: The Copan / Quirigua War and the Yaxha wars. This trip is special because it allows participants to visit certain archaeological sites that are rarely if ever visited by members of the public and connect them to Copan and Yaxha. We will be learning and discussing the history that led to the Maya Collapse.
