We leave from Flores to visit the great Maya city of Yaxha, located 76 kilometers from the Flores departmental head. This Archeological Site encompasses four Mayan cities that were of great importance during the history of their civilization: Yaxha, Naranjo, Nakum and Topoxte. It counts with more than 500 structures, varying from twin pyramids and locations for ball games, to stelae and astronomical observatories. It is a very interesting destination to learn about the Mayan archeology, and is situated beautifully in the core area of the Maya Biosphere Reserve. Due to the presence of lagoons and wetlands, the area has been recognized by the Ramsar Convention as a World-wide Wetland, being home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna.
