We had Alex as out tour guide on this trip to the Iximche Mayan Ruins. He is awesome! Alex knows the area very well and understands the culture as he is of Mayan decent. The ruins were beautiful and very well maintained. You can feel the history at this site. Once again, we learned more about the Mayan culture than we ever expected.
