Mayan Cities

The National Park owes its name to three monumental Mayan cities Yaxha, Nakum and Naranjo, of great relevance for its strategic location on the trade route and in the political domain associated with Tikal and Caracol in Belize. In addition, it has more than 296 archaeological sites of different categories that show continuous occupation of more than 2,000 years from the Middle Pre-Classic period to the Mayan Postclassic period.
