A smaller complex than Tikal. You must visit from 3 pm on to appreciate de sunset from its highest temple. Hear the jungle come alive as the sun setsnin the horizon
Me and my husband visited Yaxha in mid July. We were very lucky as our guide was Saul. He told us a lot about culture, history and daily life of Mayas. He also showed us many animals and even plants used by Mayas. We really enjoyed the tour!
This place is not to be missed-I stayed 2 days and visited the park twice. Not as impressive perhaps as Tikal but the ambience is fantastic and of all (5) ruins I have visited so far this place is the best -the most ”spiritual” place for sure A large plus was all the howler…
I would recommend Yaxha as a must. It is smaller than Tikal but there is something very special about the place. If you decide to go I would recommend the sunset tour. You will not be sorry.
We went to Yaxha before Tikal. Spectacular setting of ruins unearthed and many, many more not. Beautiful, mysterious sights in the jungle with so many ruins still covered with foliage. Lots of climbing but worth every step.
