  • We weren't really sure what to expect from Uaxactun, but this truly ended up being one of the highlights of our trip to Central America. We were staying at a hotel in Tikal National Park (The Jungle.....  more »
  • Areas A and B were definitely worth to visit. In August we were allone. No other tourists. You need to buy the ticket at the entrance of the park (where you buy the ticket for Tikal). Additionally...  more »
  • Uaxactún and its community are a must visit if you're already in Petén. It's just a 30 minute drive after the entrance to Tikal and 200% worth it. This archeological site is enormous, but more than that, it's a natural reserve, one of the most important green lungs in Central America. Everybody who lives here (less than 700 people) cares so much for the environment and their way of life is exemplary for the rest of mankind. Although there is no electricity, they rely on solar power for basic things. They are all very much in touch with their surroundings and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the history of this site. I highly recommend getting a local tour guide, and go early in the morning to see howler monkeys in the canopy above you.
  • A Place that is not due to its availability (via Tikal Park) so much frequented by tourists about up to 3000 people per year. Historically attractive and interesting location. The food can be taken to the local restaurant next to the soccer field and you will not be disappointed, very successful.
