Spanish:Reproducción a escala del "Canal Mirador" que corría, en dirección SE, muy cerca de donde usted se encuentra. Llevaba agua del Lago Miraflores hacia comunidades y campos de cultivo aledaños. Este canal contaba con compuertas de madera para controlar la velocidad y el volumen del líquido. Los antiguos mayas desarrollaron un complejo sistema hidráulico que les perimitía llevar agua a largas distancias, almacenarla y redistribuirla.English:Scale Model of "Canal Mirador", it ran to the SE, very close from when you are right now.
