TIKAL – which means “place of voices” was the largest city of the Maya Classic Period with a population estimated to have been over 90,000 at its peak. Its highest structure (Temple IV) properly known as the temple of the two-headed snake measures over 210 feet. The site is set in a lush tropical rainforest with exotic creatures at every turn. Howler Monkeys and Spider Monkeys and countless species of exotic birds go about their daily routine, unprovoked by humans, in this environment. In 1979 UNESCO declared Tikal a World Heritage site for two reasons its archaeological and ecological importance.
We start our day with a 10 to 15 minute drive from San Ignacio to the Western Border of Belize and Guatemala. After crossing the border we sit back and enjoy our very scenic drive to Tikal. The ride is approximately 1.5 hour to this magnificent place that you will talk about for years to come. After a fun day of exploring and learning, creating unforgettable memories we will conclude our day by breaking for lunch. A freshly prepared meal will be waiting for you at one of the restaurants located within the park. After lunch we return to Belize!
