Itinerary

Yaxha was the third largest city in the region and experienced its maximum power during the Early Classic period, Yaxha had a long history of occupation with the first settlement being founded sometime in the Middle Preclassic period.

You will be pick up in the meeting point in Flores and you will be transferred to Yaxha Archaeological Park.

Yaxha It is a Mesoamerican archeological site located in the northeast of the Petén Basin region within the Department of Petén. It is approximately 30 km southeast of Tikal, between the Yaxha and Sacnab Lake.

Located in the modern-day department of Petén, northern Guatemala, it is approximately 30 kilometers southeast of Tikal, Yaxha is situated on the north shore of Lake Yaxha.
Yaxha is the third largest ruin in Guatemala, with only Tikal and El Mirador being larger. The centre of the city consisted of a number of plazas and architectural groups, with outlying groups and the lake shore linked by causeways. The main architectural groups are the Maler Group to the north, linked to the central area by the Blom Causeway, the South (or Main) Acropolis, the West Group, the Northeast Acropolis, the East Acropolis and a number of plazas and lesser groups make up the site core. The city was linked to the shore of Lake Yaxha by the Lake Causeway.

Yaxha is notable for the unique survival of its toponym from the classical period. The name of the city is of ancient origin, literally meaning blue-green (Yax) water (ha). A thriving ceremonial center in it´s heyday, it has over 500 structures, including 40 stelae, 13 Altars, 9 Temple Pyramids, and 2 Mesoamerican ball courts.

At the afternoon we will have time to appreciate the beautiful landscape that offers the park from the top of one of the highest temple to delight yourself admiring the sunset.
In the afternoon, you will be transferred back to Flores

I went on the Yaxha sunset tour the same day my morning flight landed from Guatemala. I was contacted by the agency the day before saying I was the only one on the tour and so I would have to pay for a second person if I still wanted to confirm, which I did because I really wanted to go. I was picked up at my hotel in Flores by the driver and guide. The guide was super knowledgeable throughout the entire trip and the driver was safe and more than competent on the roads. Due to most tourists going to Tikal, Yaxha was virtually empty when we got there, which was great. You could climb the temples all by yourself and listen to the noises of the monkeys very clearly. The only thing I wish the agency would have told me in advance is that the platform that you usually watch sunsets from, on top of one of the temples, was under construction.. This is quite vital information if you are booking a 'sunset tour' in my opinion. Sadly, it rained all day anyway, but still, bad practice.
