The area is still virgin and there are archeologists working there.
The city’s main group of buildings covers two square kilometers and many were built on a grand scale, such as the “El Tigre” complex and the “La Danta” complex. El Tigre rises to about 180 feet tall, and its base covers 14 acres. The La Danta complex has a base that would cover 35 football fields. On top of this base is a series of plazas, temples, pyramids and other structures reaching to a total height of 230 feet, making it one of the tallest of all Mayan structures.
Getting to El Mirador is difficult. There are no roads or rivers leading to the site, so you have to hike (a five-day round trip journey usually made with the help of horses or mules). Tours of El Mirador are generally arranged with prior notice of your visit to Belize to make all the arreangements to ensure a smooth tour.
