“Immerse yourself in the mystic allure of Yaxchilan, a hidden gem nestled deep in the heart of the Lacandon Rainforest. This awe-inspiring Mayan site is a testament to the grandeur of a civilization long past, yet it resonates vibrantly against the lush backdrop of the wild Usumacinta River. A journey here is not only an exploration of history, but a spectacle of nature’s untamed beauty.

To reach these magnificent ruins, embark on a thrilling boat ride from the quaint Chol Indian village of Frontera Corozal, situated tantalizingly close to the Guatemalan border. As you navigate downstream along the serpentine Usumacinta River for 30 minutes, the dense rainforest comes alive around you. If fortune smiles upon you, the vibrant flashes of toucans, scarlet macaws, and parrots might accompany your journey, along with the enigmatic presence of crocodiles, neotropical river otters, and spider monkeys.


Once you step ashore, a brief walk through the whispering jungle leads you to the ruins of Yaxchilan. Enclosed by the jungle that once reclaimed this vital Mayan city, the ruins stand as silent witnesses to a vibrant history. This was a city that rivalled Palenque, engaging in warfare in 654 under the reign of Mayan rulers such as Moon Skull, Bird Jaguar I and II, and Yax Deer-Antler Skull.

As you explore the site, you’ll be captivated by the imposing ruins, including palaces and temples that cluster around a vast plaza perched on a terrace above the Usumacinta River. Enveloped by the river’s natural meander, the ruins offer breathtaking views of the river and the verdant lowlands beyond. Yaxchilan is renowned for its plethora of exquisite sculptures, including striking monolithic carved stelae and intricate narrative stone reliefs that adorn the lintels over the temple doorways. The site is a living archive, with over 120 inscriptions etched on the various monuments, each one a cryptic message from the past, waiting to be deciphered.

So come and lose yourself in the enchanting allure of Yaxchilan, where every stone tells a story and the echoes of history resonate with the primal rhythms of the jungle.”
