Iximche is not far from Guatemala City, also easy to reach from Lake Atitlan. It's not reconstructed like Tikal but has its own beauty. There are less crowds, so you have more space to view the ruins themselves along with the natural setting. It was...More

By the time I visited Iximche, I had already seen Tikal and Yaxha in the Peten region of Guatemala. Those sites were incredibly ancient compared to Iximche, which was explained to us as one of the last Mayan sites to be built and inhabited before...More

This is a wonderful place to visit. We stopped here on our way from Antigua to Panajachal. Unlike a few other places in Guatemala they did not accept USD or credit cards. So be certain you have enough local currency.

This maya ruin is worth a visit but since I have visited several ruins around the world sometimes it just seems like just another ruin

Went on a tour conducted by Richard Morgan from Posada Los Encuentros (Panajachel) and thoroughly enjoyed this stroll through history.

I don't know the timing from Pana, as we came from Guatemala City. I'd suggest a half a day at Iximche.

Contact Agencia de Viajes, Antiqua, Guatemala. As of last summer transport to Iximche was $45 per person through them.
