The Relief map is amazing. We had a wonderful guide, Jose Campos, who willingly explained and pointed out things we had to see. You could tell he was passionate about his beloved Guatemala, and it made the whole experience so much more interesting and fun than if I would walk around alone just to see it by myself. Well worth... More

If you are going to be traveling anywhere around the country, or even if you are not, the Relief Map is a great starting point, and thrills everyone who sees it. The whole country to scale, with high towers for overlooking it. After getting a good look at the map you will know why no matter where you go you... More

It is a great place to visit to see Guatemala's geography. It is very impressive how this was built so long ago without the technology we have today as satellites and GPS.

I was expecting another thing when I came. The place is free and is basically a map made out in concrete that someone made a couple of years ago.. It has some mountains and rivers and stuff... Its kind of old... I mean, you can see they don't do any maintenance to the thing I think its the place you... More

This is a must see for the tourists, the map itself is a sample of the mountains, volcanos, rivers, lakes and everything else there is, it has all the names of the cities and departments, it is very impressive. Actually there is a tourist guide, affordable and bilingual, that explains everything you should know.

I finally made it to visit the relief map after years of hearing about it. I is a pretty cool side trip in the city, and worth pondering all the work that was involved in creating it. There are other things to do in the area; visit an American style baseball park, kids amusement park, the Gallo beer brewery. Admission... More

This is definitely one of the highlights in the city. Mind boggling it was done in the early 1900's to scale without the benefit of modern equipment.

Interesting to see but that's all there is in the area. The place is dirty and tourists get hassled by sellers of a lot of stuff. If you happen to be near, check it out. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

The Relief Map of Guatemala, a jewel of engineering and art, is an overview of the country's territory erected at ground level
