The masters of the carving converge in Hormigero, sacred land of the jaguar and the panther.

 

One of the most beautiful places you can find in the Maya Forest is Hormiguero. To get to this site you have to take roads and a stretch of dirt that passes in the middle of the jungle.

The view from there is beautiful, the fauna and flora of the place steal your breath. It is common to see monkeys and monkeys, a great variety of birds and if you are one of the lucky ones you can get to listen to wild cats or small deer in the area.

 

The locals say that there are nights in which some pumas and jaguars are heard passing by and hanging around.

Crossing that dirt road reveals a place that takes you inside the archaeological zone. There are three buildings within which stands out the number two that has a zoomorphic image of a jaguar warrior, which serves as an entrance. A spectacular place that will leave you speechless.

This area highlights the wall with carved zoomorphs of a jaguar warrior with an open mouth that gives you access to a domed crack and other glyphs over the man, woman and the higher self.

 

In Hormiguero we can see a building that is divided into three sections, in the center a large mask and on its sides rounded corner towers with unfinished staircases typical of that entire region.
