Overview

Yaxha and Topoxte Guatemala Tour. Yaxhá and Topoxté are ancient Mayan sites in Petén, Guatemala. During this excursion, you will enjoy a guided tour of Yaxhá and Topoxté and also take in the sights and sounds of the jungle.

Yaxhá is a Maya site of the Classic period, located between the lagoons of Sacnab and Yaxhá. On the opposite side of the latter is Topoxté, the largest Post Classic site in Petén, Guatemala.

The Mayan name of the city is seen in its glyph emblem (which represents the head of a parrot) and is read as Yax (green-blue), ha (water).
