Tikal Maya Ruins
Tikal Maya Ruins
Tikal (“City of Echoes”) is the largest known City remaining from the ancient Maya civilization and was considered the greatest metropolis in the Maya Kingdom. It holds ruins comprising over 3,000 astounding structures set in 55 square kilometres / 21 sq miles and situated in Guatemala’s largest protected area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your tour day will begin with a prompt departure at 7am. Your Belizean guide will help you to compare the border towns of Benque Viejo in Belize and Melchor de Mencos in Guatemala. On the ride to the Tikal Mayan ruins in Guatemala you will already see the differences in the two countries. Views along the transition can vary from wild pigs and exotic birds in flight to Mayas dressed in traditional clothing and carrying over-sized water pots on their heads.
At Tikal you'll be met by an expert Guatemalan tour guide who will impress you with an extensive knowledge of every aspect of Maya life as it existed from before 1,000 BC until it fell after 1,000 AD. Take a gentle amble through the rainforest primary growth and hear the famous Howler monkeys. Sightings of Spider monkeys are possible as well as Toucans and other exotic birds. Lunch is served in one of the local eateries before heading back to the luxury of Ka’ana Resort.
