    The archaeological site is relatively preserved, although there was trash in the Park, the most modern is the small museum upon entering, hand left.

The site has not changed in many years, my family group, had benefited from a guide, explaining in more detail the history and events. It would be good if this were available. Although, it might only be of interest to very few visitors. In general, it is not something especially recommended. Although it is part of the experience of visiting Huehuetenango.
