Description

TIKAL MAYA RUINS TOUR

Tikal is an ancient Mayan ceremonial center located just across the border in Peten, Guatemala, 19 miles north of Lake Peten Itza and the quaint town of Flores. We will drive you to the Belize-Guatemala border, only a short 15-minute drive from our office, and when you arrive at the border we will pay your border fees and assist you with your crossing, after which you will meet your guide. Your guide will drive you for another 1.5 hours before arriving at Tikal National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way, we will pass small villages, beautiful lakeside scenery and rolling hills with rainforests and agriculture farms.

Upon arrival at Tikal we will pay your entrance fees and then your guide will provide an in-depth 4-hour tour of this magnificent site (Our guide speaks fluent English). Tikal is known for its massive pyramid temples, monumental plazas, palaces, and stelae. This is a very significant site in the history of the region and Tikal was the most powerful metropolis in the area for many centuries. It was a prominent player in the Mesoamerican trade route, which extended up through Belize, into Mexico and beyond.

You will also have time to view wildlife such as howler monkeys and coatis, enjoy birding as you spy parrots, toucans and oscillated turkeys among the trees, as well as sample some of the local culture of modern-day Guatemala. After an extensive tour of the site, we make our way to a local restaurant lunch, including vegan and vegetarian options. Lunch is included in your tour. After lunch, we will have the opportunity to purchase some crafts and souvenirs before heading back across the border to Belize.

This is your chance to knock another item off your bucket list (and if Tikal is not on your list, trust us, it should be!). Tikal is a unique and impressive Guatemalan archaeological site within close proximity to our Belize headquarters. Take the plunge and get the best of both worlds at MayaWalk!
