‪During the Corona crisis Yaxchilan is actually open but only the down town area. The acropolis on top is closed like all the other temples up there. I guess the officials are afraid that too many people could gather there. Well, on a whole day there were maybe 100 tourists visiting the ruins. Usually there are many more. Anyway if you are willing to take the efforts to get there (first by car / bus changing to a boat later) and if you are okay with only seeing the half of the location, the day trip is worth it. The boat tour is fun, there are always monkeys and the ruins are pretty.‬

‪This is a rather large and well excavated Mayan site that is rather difficult to reach so you get the whole "hidden gem/remote jungle" and "beautifull Maya ruins" experience in one go!

It starts with a 30/40min boat ride where we haggled down to 200$M/person (we were a group of 4) that is a very nice jungle experience in itself. We saw some toucans and other birds flying over and enjoyed the teeming jungle passing along.

The site itself is not the most amazing one, but there is a lot to explore: 2 acropoli, a large plaza and a small labyrinth you van actually enter.
Compared to other sites that are this remote it is really well excavated, and a lot of fine carvings can be found while roaming the site. Added bonus is the river that can be seen from some structures.

The only other visitors were 4 other people, some howler and spider monkeys and a gazillion mosquitos. Bring repellent and long trousers! (They did seem to stay low)‬

‪This is by far the most magical place that I have visited. You go to Frontera Corozal and take a boat. You travel along the border between Mexico and Guatemala in the jungle. You can see crocodiles taking a nap along the banks.
Then you arrive at the archaeological site. You enter the jungle and then suddenly an Oasis appears in front of you. So many archaeological buildings, all completely different. Make sure you go up to see them all, some are hidden ! Its quite an adventure.
If you enter the first building and go through to exit on the other side, I am warning you that it is full of bats hanging from the ceiling and the ceiling is pyramid shaped, but not high!
Go as early as possible so that you can hear the monkeys in the jungle. Its worth it.
You will not want to leave this place. Take you time to take it all in. The trees are interesting as well. You need to be fit to go.
A must‬

‪Our visit to Yaxchilan was all too short. After the 40-minute boat ride we had only about an hour on-site, far too little to see what we wanted to see. Also, our guide did not point out such features as the hieroglyphic Stairs leading up to Structure 33, and much more of interest to us.

Ask if you can skip the boat your group arrived on and take a later one - they will probably say no, but Yaxchilan deserves more time.‬

‪Went with a family group of 4. You have to take a boat to get to the sight, and we paid an english speaking guide in order to understand the ruins better and point out some animals to us. During the boat ride we saw a crocodile! The ruins are an amazing jungle experience in which we saw tucans and 2 type of monkeys with babies (howling and spider monkeys). The monkeys were in the trees directly on the sight! It is a complete hidden treasure when it comes to nature‬

‪After a very interesting boat trip along the Usumacinta river, you reach the site of Yaxchilan in the middle of the jungle. The howling monkeys acompany with their sound.. Very interesting Labyrinth.. beautiful trees... personally couldn't climb the piramid but saw interesting pictures taken by my colleagues...‬

‪I am Mexican and I have visited most of the ruins in Mexico. Off all the ones I have visited Yaxchilán is my favorite. It is a remote location, only accessible by boat. As you walk towards them in the middle of the jungle, all of a sudden they appear. As if you were discovering them.
Amazing experience ‬

‪A great place, but harder to reach. We took a 30 minute boat ride that was relatively uninteresting but very pleasant on a hot day. The site itself is not quite as grand as some others, but still worth visiting. Set squarely in the jungle, many buildings had "crowns", and while not unique, they were noteworthy and photogenic.‬

‪ Not the grandest of ancient Mayan cities but it was easily the most atmospheric we visited. There are ruins far more remote but require days to get there. Although it is pretty far from the main tourist track, it is reachable from Palenque, a three hour ride by bus on a very bumpy road, as we would discover afterwards as we came from the Guatemalan side by boat. And from here it takes an hour by boat to reach the ancient city, situated right into a bend in the Usumacinta river.
The site is situated on an hill as it requires to walk uphill either from the main plaza or the backroad first to the Small Acropolis and by an incredibly long stairway down to the main plaza.
As we were the only group, besides a pretty loud group of Mexican high schoolers it was quiet, or actually not at all. While standing on the main plaza we heard a group of howler monkey's making an appearance in the tree tops. They are actually quite hard to discern so I only made a film of their howls.
Although in the dry season it was pretty moist here, so bring enough water. There are also a couple of interesting dintels and other reliëfs to be seen and in the last temple or first if you walk to the plaza you'll find bats hanging on the ceiling. This site was one of the more memorable for me.‬

‪BOAT PRICES! You shouldn’t have to pay any more than 900 for two or 1000 for four. We ended up paying for 900 for four people.

I stayed at Nueva Alianza and the front desk guy quoted me 1600 pesos for two people. 1600!! I was so shocked I didn’t even counter offer. I walked 100 feet out the front of the property and a guy offered 950. He immediately went down to 850 for two people.

The booth area where you buy tickets for the site will try to rip you off as well. We ran into a family of three from Mexico City who paid 1200 for three people. Man were they cheesed when they heard what we paid.

There are some wonderful folks in the Frontera Corozal area, but a lot of the boat guys are pretty cynical and will cuss under their breath at you if you say no or stick to your guns on a fair price. We found a younger kid on the beach to be our captain who wasn’t a grump and it ended up being quite a nice time.

Remember, the guys want to work, so just stick to a fair price and they’ll acquiesce.

Oh, and the ruins were absolutely lovely. Bring a flashlight! A cell phone light is okay, but a flashlight is way better. I recommend exploring the inside of the first building you come across. There are some pitch black corridors you can walk through with bats and some freaky looking but completely harmless blue/black cave spiders. The spiders have these incredible long front arms and they almost look like scorpions. Really cool creatures and I’m not a bit spider fan. Did a bit of research on them and they’re extremely docile and actually incapable of biting or hurting a human in any way.‬
