The third-largest ruins in Guatemala, Yaxha National Park, takes its visitors back to the classical period in the Americas via an ancient Mayan city. Walk the ruins to view more than 500 structures of Mayan origin. The jungle has permeated the city, leading animals to share the area with tourists--be prepared to encounter monkeys and tropical birds. As you explore, you'll observe over 40 Mayan stelae, a kind of sculpture and monument, spread throughout the city. After working up an appetite, head to the restaurant at the entrance of the park.

Me encantó estar en medio de la selva, ver las pirámides y construcciones, observar a diferentes animales que se te aparecen por el camino... IMPRESIONANTE!!! more »I loved being in the middle of the jungle, seeing the pyramids and buildings, observing different animals that appear to you along the way... Impressive!!!
This is an underrated park. It is not as big as Tikal but certainly as interesting. It is quite a ride to get there but once there it's all worth it. Stay to see the magical sunset!
Amazing place! Peaceful, nice, with nature, Mayan history and culture, and easy to be reached from Flores by car or with a tour.
