I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are basic, but do have mosquito nets to keep the bugs out. The rooms have (solar) electricity, but I wasn't able to use the plug in my room. The bathroom/showers are shared. You need to turn on the water at the water tank before using. No hot water, but it's not needed....

Uaxactun is the end of the road (from Tikal) and Neria's place is the end of the town. It is a marvelous oasis. Her hospitality is second to none. We were made welcome and immediately treated as honoured guests. The facilities are basic. No hot water, no toilets in the rooms. No wifi, no phone. That's the downside. They recently...

First started coming here nearly 20 years ago. Neria Herrera runs this small hotel. Several small cabins in the site. Outside toilets and showers. The site is at the far end of Uaxactun and also has a large restaurant space. Food is brilliant and cooked over a wood burning hearth. There's also an exquisite ceramics museum with loads of vases...

This spot is run by a woman named Neria. No one in the town speaks English, so I was forced to use my awful Spanish but everyone was continuously kind and welcoming. I was told I was her first visitor in 4 months. This is truly a shame because visiting this town is an experience that will stay with you...

It had been a year since I last visited Uaxactún. I was sorry I missed the spring equinox as the sun rose this year beautifully illustrating this Maya astronomy site, reputed to be the most ancient in the Maya civilization. New archeological discoveries suggest that an even earlier Maya observatory tracked the movement of the constellation Orion. The campamento, a...

I love Uaxactun and the ancient observatory there, reputed to be the place where the Maya perfected their calendar. The ruins are very peaceful, magical and off the beaten track of tourism. I also really like the community of Uaxactun which is a subsistence community, without regular electricity and piped water. There is one telephone (shared by the community), no...

A friend and I spent most of the day exploring Tikal, while leaving our packs at the Visitors' Center for 1 Quetzal an hour each with the plan of spending the night at Uaxactun. When we took the 3 PM chicken bus from Tikal, we knew that we would have little time to see just one portion of the Uaxactun...
