The Tikal in Guatemala
Tikal is the ruin of an ancient city which was known as Yax Mutal found in the rainforest in Guatemala. Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the Ancient Maya dating all the way back to 400 BC. The entire National Park is over 575 square kilometers containing thousands of ruined structures. The central part of city has over 3000 ruins and covers about 16 square kilometers. At 70 meters high, temple IV is the tallest pre-Columbian structures in the Americas and offers amazing views. Today Tikal is valued to Guatemala as a national symbol and a source of pride in the past.
Our Tikal Tour:
Since Tikal is located across the western border, a driver from Belize Jungle Masters will pick you as early as 6 am. Once at the border, everyone switches to a Guatemalan tour company bus accompanied by a tour guide from Belize Jungle Masters. This is an all day tour with lunch included. After the tour, the bus will return everyone to the border and your Belizean tour guide will drop you off at your destination.
