National Park Yaxha Nakum Naranjo offers a boat trip by the Yaxha lake to one of the most particular maya hidden cities: Topoxte. With a peculiar history of its emperors and citizens, nowadays Topoxte is hidden in the nature of the Mayan jungle, but specially covered by an abundant plant hanging from the trees, just as spider monkeys, who also love spending time on the island.
