The Mayan sub-center La Blanca is located on a small country lane far from the mass tourism of the Petén. Since 2004, the University of Valencia has been excavating the site, which means that visitors have the unique opportunity to gain direct insight into excavation work and admire incredible murals inside the edifices of La Blanca.
Our tours aim to support the communities of the villages lying next to La Blanca and Yaxha. We hope that with more outside recognition, - such as allowing visitors to eat lunch with Guatemalan families - community members will begin to protect "their" sites from thieves.
Yaxha is a unique Mayan site in the Petén. Restoration work began in 1989 in cooperation with the German KfW (Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau), and over the years, archaeologists have restored and excavated many of the buildings. Today, the former shape of the city is once again recognizable. On our tours to Yaxha, visitors have the chance to admire sacred roads, the observatory, several huge acropolises, and numerous temple pyramids. Temple 216, the highest temple in Yaxha offers a breathtaking view over the lake.
