Cobanera Peten GuatemalaCobanera is a wonderful Q’echi’ Maya community. Community events are always lots of fun: arcades with games of chance and skill, horse riding competitions which can get rather interesting – because many of the Maya riders have been drinking a bit too much.

Great little jungle stream cuts the West side of this Maya village. Women washing their clothes and little Maya kids playing by their sides. Go for a dip – the water is great – find a deeper or more private swimming hole a bit farther up/down the creek.

This Maya community was recently awarded a concession to manage of group of ancient Maya caves that dot the local hillsides and valleys. Everyone always enjoys a trip to these caves. Bring a flashlight. Recommended.

Excellent MTB rides all around this area.
