Uaxactún was under the control of Tikal. It is a smaller ruin. There is a modern village on the site, which used to deal in chiclero.
Flora and fauna
This is north of Tikal Park, but much of the road between it is in the park itself and the rest looks undeveloped away from town.
Two buses each day travel from the bus station at Santa Elena via Tikal, departing at 1PM and 3 PM. They arrive in town at 4 and 6 PM, respectively. The first morning return bus leaves at 6 AM. I am not sure of the second departure time.
The official entry fee is 50Q, effective July 2007.
Main portions of the Uaxactun ruins are on either side of the airfield.
Visit the ceramics museum at Campamenhto El Chiclero.
El Chiclero has a restaurant, where the food is very good and there is a comedor in town. which we did not have time to try.
Good luck getting anything but Gallo beer.
El Chiclero and Posada Aldana are the places to stay in town. There looked to be another near the furthest southern end as we entered and rode by in the bus.
People can camp at El Chiclero.
