These mystical hikes will transport you back in time to witness the sunrise and/or sunset over classic Maya stela hidden in the mountains above the Ruins.
Stelae 10 & 12 were placed by the classic Maya to align with the sun to help time the planting of crops. Both hikes are one hour from the central park. The Maya Sunrise hike leaves at 4:00 a.m., and climbs to the Stela 12, near the village of La Pintada.
The Maya Sunset hike leaves at 4:00 p.m., and ascends to Stela 10, near the village of Hacienda Grande. Many visitors opt to do both hikes the same day! The stunning views and mystical aura combine for an unforgettable experience.
