Archaeology


Enjoy a unique experience when you visit four monumental Maya cities more than a 1,000 years old that marked the geopolitical history of the region. Strategically located on the shores of stunning lakes and rivers, the cities of Yaxha, Nakum, Naranjo and Topoxte controlled the river trade between the eastern lowlands and Belize during the Classic (250-900 AD), and Post Classic (900-1697 AD) periods. Yaxha-Nakum-Naranjo National Park has 288 other archaeological sites, six of intermediate size and 282 smaller sites.
