Melchor de Mencos is in Guatemala on the border with Belize and is usually a place that most travelers merely pass through, but it does have some stelae and zoomorphs in a square not far away. From the border, go to the first main road to the right. It is off to the right maybe a 20 minute walk away.
There are multiple banks with ATMs about a 10 minute walk from the border along the main street into town, as well as numerous touts on the border doing cash exchange.
- Nakum, a former ceremonial center and city of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, can be visited by guided tour from Melchor.
