The birds and iguanas, both guardians of Xel-Há, will guide you to a unique site in the heart of this natural reserve, where you will find a historic wall and the inscription which narrates its Mayan past. Explore the first traces of human presence in Xel-Há when visiting the ancient Mayan wall while you enjoy the enigmatic landscape of the jungle.

Xel-Há served as a very important Mayan port city, peaking between the 1st and 6th centuries A.D. but it wasn’t until the 12th century that it reached its greatest splendor when the wall was built to protect the harbor. Xel-Há remained a notable trading port until the arrival of the Spaniards in the 16th century.

Currently, this wall decorates one of the corners of Xel-Há waiting for our visitors to discover these impressive vestiges. Although the majesty of the old structure has been reclaimed by nature, its echoes still sound off in Xel-Há for the amazement of future generations.
