Add on a side trip to the Mayan site Utatalan/Kumarcaaj. An ancient cave and Maya ruins wait for you at only minutes from Santa Cruz del Quiche where several small Mayan temples remain semi buried.
Only one is fully visible and complete, but darkened by the fire local people use for their ceremonies.
A small museum tells the story of this city, Mayan mythology, and the Spanish conquest. The main plaza of Kumarcaaj or -Utatlan- is the scene of frequent religious Mayan rituals. Explore a hidden tunnel or cave, considered to be a portal to the Lords of the Earth.
The rings of fire show traces of religious rituals at the entrance as on the inside. Some locals will say it was connected to other cave systems miles away from Utatlan.
Take your headlamp if you want to explore the cave.
