Through the history of a world's first class destination

In the history of humanity one of the most outstanding civilizations is that of the Maya group
(B. C 2, 000 - A. D 1, 697).

The Chol group, an agricultural society belonging to the Mayan civilization, settled at the site they called Yax Mutal Chan Chen (Personal Interpretation "The Place of the Loads of Thread") now known as Tikal (Place of the Wind)
Since the year BC 700 until AD 1, 200 they built one of the most important cities of the Mayan Lowlands at the Mesoamerican region that is located to the north of Guatemala.

The archeology tour is the best way to spend a good day getting to know Tikal, its architecture and social history, as well as the experience of being in a place with archaeological research projects on progress.

The temperature during the day in addition to the humidity make it necessary to walk slowly, but the shade of the trees helps to keep the mood.


8:00am to 8:30am Departure from the Hotel in Flores or the airport to Tikal. In case of needing something extra, I could take you to a supermarket along the way.

9:00am to 9:30am Arrival to Tikal. We have to stop twice at he park gates to show your park fees and the rangers will bring you bacelets before letting you go in.

9:00am to 2:00pm Tour in the site. Visiting the most impresive estructures. Temple I, II at the Main Plaza, The tallest Temple IV, the second tallest Temple V, Seven Temples Square and The Lost World's Square.

2:00pm to 3:00pm Lunch time. The lunch has to be preordered in one of the restaurants of the site before the tour aroun, let me take care of recommending one of the best places.
