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.
