Iximché is in Guatemala.
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.
Flora and fauna
Mild, like most of the central Highlands.
The best way to visit Iximhe is when you are in taking these routes, from Guatemala City to either Lake Atitlan or Quetzaltenango, From Antigua to Lake Atitlan or Quetzaltenango, and the other way around. If you can join a group or hire private transportation would be the easiest and fastest way.
