“Check it out before taking a tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

I like looking at the geography of the country at this location. It's fun to look at the logistics of travel in the country before taking a big trip.

“Not worth a detour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

The relief is interesting if you know that is was made in 19th century. But it is not worth 25Q to pay for the entrance.

If you come with a taxi, ask your taxi driver to wait you for 20 minutes.

“An excellent relief map”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

You really need a bit of explanation to grasp what you are seeing. It is interesting to see the dramatic changes in elevation in the country's geography.

“100 years past recognition. Don Claudio Urrutia is finally being recognised.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2005

This outstanding map is the only one of it's kind in the world. Little is said about the engineer who did the majority of it's construction until now 100 years later. Engineer Don Claudio Urrutia who was born in 1857, was ask to build this map after setting the boundries and drawing the first official map and it's boundries of Guatemala. He left behind many documents that substantuate his claim. His daughter Neka McDonald , now nintyone years old is now bringing to life theses claims, so that her father will one day soon recieve the honors and recognition he has been intitled to for the last 100 years. On the 29th of October 0f this year there will be a dedication and ceremony in honor of this man and the others involved in the construction of this monumental effort. I am his very proud grandaughter.
