Iximché is in Guatemala.

Understand

Moderately sized Maya ruin. It is accessible from the highways in the Guatemalan west central highlands, an easy less than a day trip from Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala. It lacks the impressive monuemental art and architecture of the more famous larger Maya sites, but remains popular due to its convenient location and pleasant setting.

This fortified Maya city was late in Maya history, still occupied when the Spanish Conquistadores came to conquer Guatemala in the 16th century.
