Archaeology holidays in Latin America
Machu Picchu in southern Peru is perhaps the best-known ruin in South America, although there are thousands more Inca and pre-Columbian ruins to explore throughout the continent. Central America is an archaeologist's paradise - from the Guatemala temples at Tikal to the Maya pyramids in Mexico at Chichen-Itzá, and Aztec ruins at Teotihuacán, outside Mexico City. Belize and Honduras also have their fair share of ruins, with Copán in Honduras particularly interesting. El Salvador is little-visited by tourists but has played an interesting role in the archaeological development of the whole region.
