Four archaeological sites in Central America have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and -because of the short distances- all of them can be visited in a single trip. In Guatemala we have Tikal, the tallest temples and buildings in the Maya World, and Quirigua with the tallest stelaes, in Honduras Copan shows the highest detailed sculptural pieces, and Joya de Ceren in El Salvador is the site where the daily life of the Maya was possible to unveil.
