This morning we met you at the airport or your hotel to go to the third largest archeological site in Guatemala (after Tikal and El Mirador), impressive for the large number of structures close to each other, many of them built more than 15 centuries ago.
You’ll visit the Temple of the Red Hands, several ceremonial causeways, the ball court, the pyramid of sacrifices and more. You’ll be transferred by boat to Topoxté, a seasonal island in Lake Yax-há, used for 3 millennia as a royal cemetery. Finally 6 centuries ago there was established a group of mysterious Mayans who built a miniature structures as if they were dwarfs.
There are high chances to see spider monkeys and howler monkeys.
