    What to Expect
    Tikal is an ancient Maya ceremonial center located just across the border in Peten, Guatemala, just 19 miles north of Lake Peten Itza and the quaint town of Flores.
    We will drive you the Belize-Guatemala border, only a short 15 minute drive from our office. When you arrive at the border we will pay your border fees and assist you with your crossing, where you will meet your guide. Your guide will drive you for another 1.5 hours before arriving at Tikal National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way we will pass small villages, beautiful lakeside scenery and rolling hills with rainforest and agriculture.
    Upon arrival to Tikal, entrance fees included, your guide will then provide an in-depth 4-hour tour of this magnificent site. Our guide speaks fluent English. Tikal is known for its massive pyramid temples, monumental plazas, palaces and stelas. This is a very significant site in the history of the region, and Tikal was the most powerful metropolis in the area for many centuries. It was a prominent player in the Mesoamerican trade route which extended up into modern day Mexico, as well as Belize and beyond.
    You will also have time to view wildlife such as howler monkeys, parrots and toucans, coatis and oscillated turkeys, as well as a sample of some of the modern-day local Guatemala culture. After an extensive tour of the site, we make our way to a local restaurant for a warm lunch (included), including vegan and vegetarian options. After lunch we will have the opportunity to purchase some crafts and souvenirs before heading back across the border to Belize.
    Tikal is a unique and impressive Guatemalan archaeological site within close proximity to our Belize headquarters. Take the plunge and get the best of both worlds

    Very small and fun group. Our guide was great and just the sights of the temples and pyramids are well worth the long ride to Tikal from Belize. We had to wait at the border because one of the guest forgot their passport to cross...More
