Lost realm of the Jaguar King – Yaxchilan, Mexico

A sculptured profile of the great Jaguar King, found on a limestone stella in the middle of the ancient Mayan city of Yaxchilan in Southern Mexico. Covered in jungle, eerily surrounded  by the screaming calls of the howler monkeys, while cayman crocodiles patrol the river banks - this fantastic mayan city was previously only accessible by airplane. As it was it took a 2 hour bus ride to the Guatemalan border and an hour boat ride up the river. A lot less tourists though, stunning atmosphere, sculptures & well worth the adventure!
