DETAILED ITINERARY: TIKAL

Meet us at the Cancún International Airport to fly to the Mundo Maya International Airport, located in Santa Helena de La Cruz in the department of El Petén, Guatemala. Transfer by bus to the Tikal National Park, whose name means “place of voices”. Nestled in the heart of the lush jungle of the Guatemalan Petén, it is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Maya, along with Chichén Itzá and Uxmal. It reached its heyday, and exercised total hegemony over the area, during the Early Classic Period (250-550 AD). After its abandonment, this majestic metropolis was devoured for 800 years by the lush tropical vegetation, and today, it is the largest excavated site in the Maya civilization. Among its most noteworthy constructions, we can find the Plaza Central (Central Plaza), the Templo del Gran Jaguar (Temple of the Great Jaguar), the Gran Pirámide (Great Pyramid) and the Acrópolis. From the top of Templo IV, you can enjoy a view of more than 50 kilometers (30 miles) of unspoiled jungle. The Tikal National Park, created on May 26, 1955, was the first protected area in Guatemala, and on November 5, 1979 it was declared the first mixed World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Informal lunch at the archaeological site.

Return to Santa Helena Airport to fly back to Cancún, where we will drop you off at your place of lodging.
