Expedition to Naranjo looking for El Cibal, based from a satellite photo

FLAAR Mesoamerica team was last week at Parque Nacional Yaxha-Nakum-Naranjo, Peten. One of the main purposes of this fieldtrip was to find an area known as “El Cibale” at Naranjo, a place observed by the team on a satellite photo, but it was impossible to walk through, since the grass was 2 meters high and it cuts. The other team did some shots from the temple “La Ardilla Humeante” where you can watch the area with no jungle. This is another incredible area that deserves to be explored because the vegetation is very different.
