Ixpanpajul Nature Park, Peten

Infos pratiques

Le parc est situé au km 468 de Guatemala City à Flores, à seulement dix kilomètres (six miles) de l'aéroport international Mundo Maya de Santa Elena – Petén. Les taxis et les bus font la course depuis l'aéroport ou la ville, ou organisent le ramassage dans le parc lui-même.

Il y a des campings (et location de tentes) et des chalets avec électricité et salle de bain privée sur place, mais notez qu'ils sont très populaires auprès des Guatémaltèques fuyant la ville. Faites des réservations pour les week-ends et les jours fériés.

Uaxactún A sacred place for the Mayan, the Uaxactún archaeological site features four ancient astronomical complexes, the oldest observatories in the world. These structures were built to be perfectly aligned with the rising sun during the change of seasons. It's still a vital and significant place, where modern Mayans hold ceremonial rituals here during solstices and equinoxes welcoming the rising sun with chanting, dancing, and drumming. Overnight camping is available for tourists to join the festivities.
