Tour Tikal National Park

Tour Tikal National Park

Start your day with a short transfer from Belize City to the International Airport to clear Immigration, followed by an immediate flight connection to Flores in Guatemala, home of Tikal National Park.

At the start of the Classic Period, Tikal went to war with neighboring Caracol, located in Belize, and was defeated. The majestic Maya Ruins of Tikal (Maya for "Place of Voices") are nestled in the dense jungles of the Peten region of Guatemala. This site has been extensively excavated and restored and is probably the most recognized and impressive of all the Maya Ruins in the Central America Region.

Features at Tikal Park
The Park has many different features including museums, a visitor center, bat palace, ancient ball courts and temples. Every part of the park is sectioned with specific pathways and structures.

For example, the Lost World area of the park comprises of 38 structures, one of which is the Complex for Astronomical Commemoration. This compound is the most ancient ensemble of Maya structures in a harmonious arrangement associated with the observation of the stars, including the cycles of Venus and the Sun, as well as solstices and equinoxes.

The main structure 5C-54 (the Great Pyramid of the Lost World) is a four-sided structure standing 30 meters high, and displaying masks and stairways on all four sides, which never bore a temple at the summit.

This national park has native flora and fauna that will flourish relatively undisturbed. Tikal is also an excellent opportunity for animal and bird watching. Along the paths, spider and howler monkeys, gray foxes and red coatis are visible.

This site has been extensively excavated and restored and is probably the most recognized and impressive of all the Maya Ruins.
