Yaxchilán is a great Mayan city that sits on the bank of the Usumacinta River on the Mexican side of the border.
The site has been cleared, and some of the palaces and temples have been restored. Yaxchilán's beautiful stelae were carved in deeper relief than at other Maya sites. One of the most interesting discoveries here was a carving made on a step of Temple 33 in the 8th. century AD, which shows Yaxchilán ruler Bird Jaguar playing a ball game. Trips to this beautiful site can be arranged upon special request, and be prepared to spend at least 3 days in this trip.
