Tikal Tour From Belize

Photo of the Great Jaguar Temple at Tikal Tour Site. The structure is a funerary temple associated with Jasaw Chan K’awiil, a Classic Period ruler of the polity based at Tikal. The tomb of this ruler has been located by archaeologists deep within the structure.

Tikal Jaguar Temple

Tikal Tour features one of the greatest Mayan archaeological site in the Americas.  Certain archaeological sites become national symbols for the country where they are located, appearing on everything from travel posters to airline ads, guidebook covers, and the local currency. What would Peru be without Machu Peicchu, Cambodia without Ankor Wat, Egypt without the Sphinx? The Mayan site of Tikal, one of the wonders of the ancient world represents the same symbolic role for Guatemala.

Tikal was one of the great Classic Mayan cities mysteriously abandoned around AD 900. The site includes huge pyramids such as the Temple of the Jaguar (above). But Maya Civilization did not disappear, it continued in an altered form in the Yucatan and Chiapas regions of Mexico, Parts of Guatemala and other regions of Central LAmerica primarily Belize and Honduras.

Today there are still keepers of the 260 day Stela of Tikal last king, Hasaw Cha’an K’awiil II, who ruled from 682 up to 734 AD.

From Belize border

Tikal is conveniently located just 1 1/2 hour from Belize’s Western border by road and 1 hour flight from the Belize International Airport making Tikal Belize an easy and exciting tour. Most jungle resorts located in western part of the country also offer Tikal day or overnight tours. However, since Tikal is such a large and spectacular site most visitors prefer to spend one or two nights in or near the park.

Our exclusive one and two nights Tikal packages includes accommodations in the park close to the ruin and are designed to let you spend as much time in the park as possible.
