Full description
Visit the beautiful Yaxha National Park on an afternoon tour from Flores, and learn about the history of the region. Be taken back in time as your knowledgeable guide shows you the archaeological highlights of the park. The ancient Mesoamerican city is located in the northeast of the Petén Basin region, and is the third largest archaeological site in Guatemala.

See the remains of the city center, with plazas linked by causeways. In its heyday the city had over 500 structures, including 40 stelae, 13 altars, 9 temple pyramids, and 2 ball courts. Take time to appreciate the beautiful landscape of the park, admire the views from the top of one of the highest temples, and watch the sun as it sets on the horizon. At the end of your tour, you'll be transferred back to Flores.
