Here’s today’s travel spot, Yaxha.
The early Mayans built Yaxha on a ridge overlooking a lake by the same name – Yaxha translates as blue-green water in the Mayan language. It’s located in Peten region close to the border with Belize. The third largest Mayan city in Guatemala, around 500 buildings, including nine temple-pyramids, have been discovered here. You’ll also find five acropolises, stelae and three ball courts. Surrounded by subtropical forests that are part of a nature reserve, Yaxha is indeed a picturesque place. If you were a fan of Survivor Guatemala, you may recognize Yaxha since the series was filmed here.
