Lost Maya City with pyramids discovered hidden deep in the jungle.

Archaeologists have discovered an ancient Maya city hidden in the jungles of southern Mexico.

The site is located in the Balamk├║ ecological reserve in the central part of Campeche state, the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) said in a statement.

The site, which contains several large pyramidal structures, was likely an important center in the region during the Classic period of the Maya civilization (around 250-1,000 A.D.), according to archaeologists.

The Maya civilization dominated what is now southeastern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and the western areas of El Salvador and Honduras for more than 3,000 years until the era of Spanish colonization.
