Your experienced guide will help you navigate across the Belize/Guatemala border to Yaxha, which is located in the Petén region of Guatemala. During the Pre-Columbian Maya Period, Yaxha was the third largest city in the region. It is situated on the north shore of Lake Yaxha, and is an excellent day trip from Benque Viejo del Carmen, Belize. Yaxha, which means “Green Waters”, is an impressive site that contains over 500 structures, including 40 stelae (Mayan gravestones), several pyramid temples and ball courts. Yaxha’s highest structure, Structure 216, offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding forest. A great alternative to Tikal!
