AAA Editor Notes

Labná is about 3 km (2 mi.) e. of Xlapak. Here the best-known ruin is a restored, freestanding stone arch larger than the one at Kabah. It displays ornate decoration on the west side and a more geometric pattern on the east side. Pass through the arch to El Mirador, a pyramidal structure resting on a pile of rubble. Labná, like Sayil, contains the remains of many chultunes (cisterns) that collected rainwater. Labná's impressive Palace building is similar to the one at Sayil, although not in as good condition. See it for the ornamentation, which is—as on so many Mayan buildings—bizarrely imaginative.
