- Explore Guatemalan history, culture and nature in one tour
Led by a professional guide, this superb Belize gift experience takes you over the border into neighbouring Guatemala to visit the fascinating ancient ruins of Tikal. Situated in the UNESCO-listed Tikal National Park, this legendary archaeological site was a centrepiece of the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization, and is teeming with palaces, temples, plazas and ceremonial platforms. There are even ancient ball courts! A comfortable coach will pick you up from your San Ignacio hotel and return you afterwards for maximum convenience, and you’ll also be provided with an enjoyable lunch in the park.
During the tour of Tikal, your guide will explain the ancient kingdom’s historical background, with particular focus on Complexes Q and R. Here you’ll see the twin pyramids, the Central Acropolis, and the great plaza with the immense Temple of the Grand Jaguar. You’ll have plenty of time to take in the awe-inspiring architecture both as part of the tour and with your own free time, exploring the vast site and its monuments. Discovering the rituals and cultures of the Mayan people, this is an essential day-trip from Belize, and one you’ll remember for years to come.
