    The park is a refuge that allows the visitor to enjoy a balanced combination of pre-Hispanic cultural patrimony and biodiversity. Due to the presence of impressive lagoons and wetlands that are of the main migratory birds’ routes, the park has been recognized as a wetland of worldwide importance. The Yaxha and Sacnab lagoons can be seen from the top of several archaeological monuments, giving the area a unique scenic beauty.

    In the area, there are four main cities:

    • Yaxha
    • Nakum
    • Topoxte
    • Naranjo

    They played a very important role in the social and political organization of the Central Lowlands during more than 1,500 years. It is possible to visit the three first cities, with Yaxha being the most accessible one, and from where you may begin the park’s visit.
