You have to travel throught the Usumacinta river, which is the border between Mexico and Guatemala, if you are lucky you can see some crocrodiles. When you arrive to Yaxchilán you will see a lot of well-kept and beautiful ruins. The view from the top...More

Going down from the road near the restaurant where we had eaten lunch wasn’t easy - we had to scramble down a steep slope and one of our group slipped and scraped her leg. We then had to walk across a wooden bridge that was...More

Yaxchilan would be a spectacular site entirely on its own merit, but the fact that it is a half hour down river from the middle of seeming nowhere only enhances the whole idea of this fortress-like site in a circle of land described by a...More

This is a remote Mayan site, requiring a 2.5 hour drive to Frontera Corozal followed by a 30-minute boat ride down the Usumacinta River separating Mexico and Guatemala. The major buildings at the site are reached by hiking up and down narrow paths through the...More

If you have the opportunity, do a little research on the ruins. All placards have information in English but no brochures available. For best photo opportunity - arrive at park at opening. (Sundays - park admission is free for nationals)

An astounding aspect is the forty-minute boat trip along the broad Usumacinta River to get there. Look for the spider and howler monkeys in the ruins's jungle setting. You will certainly hear the latter, who sound something like airbrakes being applied. Take enough time to...More

We went to Yaxchilan from Frontera Corozal, Mexico. From there, it's a 50 - 60 minute boat ride down river (and 90 minutes coming back against the current). Just the ride is worth the visit, as you are traveling thru the jungle down the Usumacinta...More
