Guayabo’s Historical Development

The ancient city of Guayabo must have been quite developed for its time.

This opinion is based on the number of items of archaeological and historical significance which have been unearthed here. These items include road ways and parts of aqueducts, road maps and statues of various gods represented by alligator and jaguar figurines.

The location of the site is only about 50 acres in size but yet only 15% or so of the entire site has been unearthed. Unlike the other cities in the region Guayabo is no pyramid city but rather one built on lowlands from wood, stone and other locally available materials.Different forms of flora and fauna are located here and you can also catch a glimpse of some extremely rare species of flowers.
