These beautiful ruins were once the capital of a great Mayan territory. In the northeast of Peten, in Yaxha national park, this once great city had strong links to Tikal. The site has everything you’d expect from ancient ball courts to temples to palaces. Climbing the main temple offers a magnificent view of the beautiful Yahxa lake. Its unique location means Yaxha is also blessed with amazing bio-diversity. Journey with THGuatemala to the heart of Peten and rediscover a lost world.
