Yaxha & Topoxte

The important ceremonial center of Yaxhá is located between the two lakes of Yaxhá and Sacnab. Upon arrival, a Cayuco (motorized canoe) will transfer you to Topoxte, a site with a rich history of Maya culture and influence.  We will then explore Yaxhá, an important Maya site that has over 500 structures including 40 stelae, two ball courts and nine temple pyramids. Structures at Yaxhá show the influence of Teotihuacan and include the only twin-pyramid complex outside of Tikal. For more information about our Guatemala excursions, contact us.
