    Yaxha is an archaeological site close to Tikal. It is also a place where you can enjoy nature and water since it’s located between two lakes that can be seen from the top of several temples. Yaxha is located in the Mayan Biosphere Reserve, which is the second biggest jungle in the Americas. ​ To get to Yaxha it’s about a one-hour and forty-five-minute drive. We will be driving along a bumpy dirt road for 11 km to get to the park. The tour will last about 3 hours since the site is small, but its beauty is unique. We are flexible with your time in the sites. ​ ITINERARY 7:30 a.m. – We will meet you and pick you up at your hotel or the airport. 9:15 a.m. – Arrive at Yaxha National Park and begin the tour. 12:15 p.m. – Tour ends and we’ll eat lunch at a local restaurant 12:45 p.m. – After lunch, we’ll return to your hotel. 2:00 p.m. – Arrive back at your hotel to get ready for the pool. ​ ADMISSIONS & TICKETS You don’t need to purchase a ticket in advance; they sell them at the park.

One of the things that make your journey in a foreign land memorable is how a local passionately tells the story about his place. In my case, Elmer was very passionate in imparting his stories, about Guatemala, Yaxha and all. He knows his stuff. Transportation provided to Yaxha

We've booked a day tour to Yaxha with Tikal VIP Tours and had a wonderful experience. Elmer, our tour guide, contacted us in advance to discuss our wishes and to explain what we could expect. On the day itself, we've met Elmer and his brother for a private transfer to Yaxha.
