This is a beautiful site with a small museum. Inside the museum is a large 3D site diagram as it was long ago. This really explains it all. The location that was chosen to build this village is so beautiful and you can really see...More

25 years ago,... a trip in the future, our future. When our first Child was growing, waiting to see the sky, we were walking here. What a great, mystic, beautiful place to be. To let your mind go back in time.

We visited Iximche on the way back to Antigua from Panajachel. This is a well preserved site, although excavation stopped some years ago. It was a Mayan city protected on three sides by steep ravines with a deep moat on the fourth side. There are...More

This is a great place to visit for a few hours, ideally with someone who knows the history a bit. Map is very useful at visitor center. Grounds are well kept and interesting to walk.

Of the ruins we visited on the Pacific side of Central America, this comprised both the most land and the most structures. There was a small, but very interesting museum. It was fascinating to walk among the structures, some of which are still in use...More

Contact Agencia de Viajes, Antiqua, Guatemala. As of last summer transport to Iximche was $45 per person through them.
