Fodor's Review

Uxbenká, or "ancient place," is on the eastern edge of Santa Cruz Village, about 3 miles (5 km) west of San Antonio. This small ceremonial site has a main plaza with six structures, and a series of smaller plazas. More than 20 stelae have been found here, six of them carved. This site is not officially open to visitors, but if you ask a villager in Santa Cruz, you can probably get an informal guided tour, or go with a TIDE or other tour from PG (about BZ$200), which also include a visit to the nearby Yok Balum cave. Access to the site is much improved by the new San Antonio Road–-watch for signs to Uxbenká on the north side of San Antonio Road as you approach Santa Cruz village.
