The Ceibal ruins were probably discovered around 1890 by loggers who worked for the Hamett Mahogany Company. In 1892, Federico Artes wrote the first report revealing the existence of the ruins, after the Guatemalan government had sent him to Petén to search for materials for the representation of Guatemala at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

In 2006 the site was again explored as part of the Ceibal-Petexbatun Archaeological Project (CPAP) and field research continued until the end of 2017.

El Mirador

Despite the existence of photographic records dating from 1933, the city was discovered years later by some chewing gum workers.

In the 1960s, two chewing gum-producing businessmen released the news of this discovery. Thanks to them the city receives the characteristic name of El Mirador.

Although the exact reasons are not known, archaeologists estimate that the city was abandoned for about 700 years. It was inhabited after the Late Classic and Terminal Late Classic, but the structures were not repaired, nor were new constructions made at that time.
