It´s highly historical but the place it´s small. In terms of history -great. awesome- but if you looking for huge pyramids, this is not the place.

Uaxactún is quite different it is within a quiet sleepy little village. It is 23 km (15 miles) on the north side of Tikal Park, but the road there was rough and took me over an hour to drive there. The road was very dry and dusty so when I arrived, my wonderful green Toyota 4Runner was now white with dust and in desperate need of a washing.
This site is far less developed than the Tikal but still well worth a visit; this one is situated within the confines of a working community so you need to walk throughout the village to get to the different sections of the site.

Rugged terrain, lots of hiking and marvelous Mayan ruins! Beautiful jungle trails and lots of interesting wildlife can be seen.

Very small ruin, not as grand as Yaxha. See if only if you are in that area but the trip across the lake is quite interesting.

The ruins here will pale a bit in comparison to Tikal or Yaxha. It takes over an hour each way (from Tikal) to make the jungle-road drive to get there. But if the journey sounds fun and you might be interested in seeing the remote (primitive) town along with the ruins, it can be a fun trip.
