Visit one of the largest and most important Mayan sites in all of Central America. 

Once inside the park, let your imagination run free as you explore highlights among more than 3,000 structures that archaeologists have excavated so far. Learn about the daily life and religious practices of the ancient Maya while wandering through the maze of the Central Acropolis, and envision the excitement of an elite sporting match in the ball courts. Tikal boasts an array of magnificent ceremonial temples. Climb the steep staircase of the 144-foot (44-meter) Temple of the Grand Jaguar, built to honor a Mayan king. A set of twin pyramids with altars will greet you at complexes Q and R. Marvel at the Temple of the Masks, which was once adorned with intricate ceremonial mask carvings. Perhaps most impressive is the oft-photographed Temple IV, also known as the Double Head Serpent.

After a refreshing lunch break inside the park, satisfy your inner archaeologist during free time to explore the ruins independently. Most other tour companies take you outside the park for lunch. We stay inside the park to allow more time to explore.

Actun Tunichil Muknal or simple ATM is one of the most popular Mayan burial sites in Belize. The cave contains four skeletons, ceramics, and stoneware left by the Maya. The most famous ... moreskeleton is that of a young girl, the bones of which have been completely covered by the natural processes of the cave, leaving them with a sparkling appearance. The cave itself is several kilometers long with several chambers. Once inside the cave, you will spend several hours swimming, climbing, and be exploring. 

The hike from the starting point to the cave entrance includes three stream crossings and passes through the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. The hike through the lower portion of the cave is approximately 45 minutes in duration. Once through the inner chambers, you will ascend to the upper chambers, and to do this you will be required to take off your shoes and explore in only your socks to prevent damage to the artifacts. This adventure is challenging and a good level of physical fitness is required. The ability to swim is a plus as you will need to cross deep water to enter the cave and will be wading through water several times both inside and outside the caves. 

At the furthest end of the upper chambers, you will encounter the “crystal maiden”. Cameras are not allowed in the cave for conservation purposes.

Christian met us at the Belize-Guatemala border and we were driven through the beautiful countryside of Guatemala to Tikal (just over an hour drive).

Our driver on the Belize side dropped us off at the border and explained the process to us. We independently walked into the Belize immigration area, paid the fee, showed our passports and vaccine cards, and then walked across the border to the Guatemalan side, where we again showed our passports and vaccine cards. Masks were required in the Guatemalan immigration area at the time (early July 2022). ... more My husband and I were not accompanied by the tour guides during the actual border crossing process through Customs/Immigration. Christian from TikalGo then met us immediately after exiting the gated area. On the return, Christian accompanied us to the gate on the Guatemalan side, and explained what to expect for the return (showing passports/vaccines again). Our driver was then waiting for us on the Belize side.

Tikal Day Trip with TikalGo
What an amazing experience! Eduardo is an excellent guide! He is friendly, knowledgeable, and did not rush us through Tikal as some tours do. He allowed us to experience the ruins at our own pace. Not only does he know about the Mayan culture and the site but he was excellent at spotting birds and other animals. Our driver was also courteous and vigilant while avoiding the stray dogs in Guatemala. ... more 5 stars!

Awesome experience and customer service!
Had a wonderful experience yesterday June 26, 2022 with Tikal Go. Took advantage of their private tour for our family of 4. Marlon picked us up from our lodge in the forest in Belize, conveyed us to the border crossing, provided information on next steps and where to meet our Guatemalan guide Christian on the other side. Christian and our driver Sylvan drove us to Tikal while sharing much of the history ... more of the Mayan peoples of the greater Yucatán region. At Tikal Christian explained the unique architectural and astronomical precision of the temples and how they were built. We explored around the main plaza and climbed the magnificent Temple 4. Then we were treated to a delicious lunch in the only restaurant hidden in the forest! Christian and Sylvan then returned us safely to the border, we waved goodbye to our new friends and said hello to Marlon on the Belizean side. Marlon ensured all our passports had been appropriately stamped and we were good to go for our return to the lodge. We visited on a Sunday, so no issues with crowds or border crossing delays. An awesome day - unbelievable archeological site - and stellar experience with Tikal Go!! The drivers and our guide were consummate professionals. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic time yesterday on our trip to Tikal. Every single aspect truely exceeded our expectations. My mom has mobility limitations, and they made sure to transport her to the base of the ruins, and patiently helped her navigate the four main temples.

Terrific Day at Tikal
Our group of 4 had a wonderful time on our TikalGo tour to the archeological site. Our Belizean driver was great and our Guatemalan driver and guide were equally so. All were welcoming, knowledgeable and very helpful. Our border crossing was seamless and our ride to Tikal was filled with pleasant conversation and information about the people and the country. Tikal, of course, was breathtaking. The ... more day started out overcast which was perhaps a bit disappointing in regard to picture taking, but the best regarding temperature! It was very pleasant. We arrived early and thus avoided crowds. There were still plenty of people around, but it was easy to move about and see all we wanted to see. One of our group was on the mend from a knee injury and our guide was able to secure us a place on the Jungle Jalopy. It was helpful for her to knock off the initial hike from the gate to the site. Due to the addition of stairs and landings, she was able to (slowly) climb with the rest of us to the upper level of a couple of temples to experience the spectacular views. Temple IV had been my favorite from a previous visit many years ago and I was rewarded again on this visit. It's beautiful to look out over the forest canopy. Especially as the clouds cleared to reveal a beautiful sky. Lunch was included in the tour and was delicious. There were several options to choose from and each of us found something we really enjoyed. There were a couple of shopping opportunities, but no pressure to buy. All in all, it was a truly excellent day. I highly recommend the experience with TikalGo.

Tikal GO: Tikal, Flores and Yaxha
From San Ignacio in Belize we decided to hop over to Tikal and found local Agency Tikal Go that organized the Guatemala tour for us. With transport to the border included, where we were picked up by driver and our guide. Tikal was amazing and we got a ton of background info along the way and great lunch in the park. From there it was on to Flores where Carlos greeted us at the lovely hotel downtown ... more to make sure all was perfect. We could spend the late afternoon, evening and the next morning in Flores. In the afternoon we visited Yaxha and witnessed an impressive sunset over the Yaxha lake. Then it was back to San Ignacio in similar fashion as the day before. Very well spend 2 days in Guatemala, too bad we did not have more time.

Tikal Tour was incredible! Go there.
We had a wonderful day trip to Tikal. We booked the trip for our family of four to do a private tour. We drove all over Belize but wanted to maximize our day to Tikal and booked a tour instead. Our guide, Noel, was absolutely wonderful to spend the day with and tour the area. He was friendly, highly knowledgeable, spoke amazing English and was patient and great with both our kids (ages 9 and 15). ... more The lunch provided was delightful and our 9 year old enjoyed learning how to make tortillas too.
