Yaxha Sunset Tour

  • Tour Description

    One of the largest Mayan complexes in Guatemala, Yaxha contains more than 500 structures, including nine temples and one of the few twin pyramid complexes outside of Tikal.

    The city was located on a ridge overlooking Lake Yaxha. The name of the city derives from the Mayan for ¨blue-green water¨ it is a notable survival of a Classic period place-name into the modern day. As the sun sets behind this post-classic site, the densely shrouded temples and structures lure your imagination back into a bygone era. Afterwards, enjoy some drinks and savor the sunset.

    A memorable experience in the Yaxha National Park. Experience the Sunset in the top of a Mayan Temple!
