What to expect
Yaxha can be considered the forgotten brother of Tikal. Which is really a shame because it truly is worth visiting!
A special charactaristic of Yaxha is that its ruins are located right next to a lake. This makes for beautiful sunsets from the top of the ruins with a bright orange ball taking a evening dip into the blue lake!
Yaxha was put on the map when the popular reality show ‘Survivor’ was shot there! The show was shot on a little island called Topoxte which can be visited by boat from Yaxha. Crocodiles can easily be seen at nighttime.
