After a three-hour hike up the mountain (no wonder they say mountains are breathtaking), we reached the spot where the actual Rio Negro massacre of 1982 occurred. This sign was erected in the place where it happened to remember the terrible act that the civil patrol and military brought upon the Achi' Maya. The story was narrated by our guide, whose mother was actually victimized during the massacre. He explained in vivid detail exactly how brutal the rapes and murders actually were.
