Magical tour through the Mayan wonders
The National Park Yaxhá-Nakum-Naranjo is located sixty two kilometres east from the Flores island. The park got its name because the three archaeological sites in the region, discovered in 1904 by early explorers of the Mayan area.
Yaxha was a very important comercial and religios Maya city, arround A. D 600 - 700. Its location near the lake of the same name made the city become the port of arrival for all the caravans of merchants going to the most important cities of the Maya Lowlands.
It is a beatyful site. The views of the two lakes, sorrounding the site, from the top of the tallest Temple of the Red Hands are unique.
This National Park, has a superb maintenance program and part of it is carefully pruning the trees under the direction of expert landscaping archaeologists wich make this site to have the best views of the restorations and structures still not uncover inmerse in a pristine jungle.
Also the site is a perfect place to see the sunset from the top of its tallest temple.
The start time of this tour is for letting us have a perfect time visiting the most important temples, structures and courtyards of the site and to be on time to watch the sunset.
We'll travel one hour and thirty minutes to the site and once there the walking tour is about three to four hours. But before starting the tour you have to buy the fees at the gate of the park, which is as well a very comfortable visitor center.
The best time to climb the Temple of the Red Hand is around 4:45pm
From the place where we will see the sunset we have to walk just a couple of minutes to the parking lot.
The way back to Flores or the airport is usually at the early evening.
