Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel in Flores and taken to Yaxha Archaeological Park. It's a Mesoamerican archaeological site located in the northeast of the Petén Basin region. It is approximately 30 km southeast of Tikal, between the Yaxha and Sacnab Lake. Located in the modern-day region of Petén, Northern Guatemala, this area is approximately 30 kilometers southeast of Tikal.  Yaxha is the third largest ruin in Guatemala. The center of the city consists of a number of plazas and architectural groups, with outlying groups and the lakeshore linked by causeways. The name of the city is of ancient origin, literally meaning blue-green (Yax) water (ha). A thriving ceremonial center in its heyday, it has over 500 structures, including 40 stelae, 13 Altars, 9 Temple Pyramids, and 2 Mesoamerican ball courts. Come along on this guided tour of the site. You will have time to have a traditional Guatemalan lunch afterwards at your own expense. In the afternoon, you will be taken back to Flores.
