Book the Yaxha Bird Tour.
Yaxhá is a protected natural area with National Park status, which was declared as such in 2003, occupying an area of 371.6 square kilometers. It has wetlands, forests, rivers, and lagoons. The archaeological place has 500 structures such as temples, pyramids, palaces, courts for the ball game, original paths, etc. It’s a favorable place for birdwatching, according to Ebird data 249 species of birds have been recorded so far. This impels us to explore more to increase the records and be part of the observers with contributing to the Park data.
Some species that can be observed are Bat Falcon, Gartered Trogon, Mealy Parrot, Chestnut Colored Woodpecker, Pale-Billed Woodpecker, Black Throated Shrike-Tanager, etc.
We’ll visit the main attractions of the City of Yaxhá that has a total of 237 square kilometers of area and is surrounded by the Yaxhá and Sacnab Lagoons. Evidence has been found on the place since the Classic Period from 250 to 600 AD, so the City of Yaxhá was contemporary to the City of Tikal with which they had alliances and links that our Tikal Go tour guide will explain to you with luxury details so that you understand the complex culture and traditions of the ancient civilization. We’ll visit the Astronomical Complex, the Avenue of the Pilgrims, the Complex of the Twin Pyramids and the Temple of the Red Hands, the most famous 216.
The City of Yaxhá is located in the middle of the Mayan Biosphere, so besides the history and the Mayan culture in the tour, you’ll discover a lot about the flora and fauna that for years hid this treasure of humanity.
