Tikal will always seem only to us because we do the tour in a different way to be in the right place at the right time. Tikal at that time has few visitors and the temperature is still cool.

 

We developed the sunrise tour because our guests deserve to see Tikal first thing in the morning to appreciate the wildlife when it is most active as well as at the end of the day. The main attraction of this tour is the awakening of the jungle with the noise of the birds and the howler monkeys, the sunrise is seen only 20% of the time, as it is usually cloudy or misty.

 

Tikal has a double title from UNESCO, it is a Natural and Cultural Heritage of Humanity, so during the walk between one monument and another, it is inevitable to enjoy natural attractions such as ancient trees and some species of fauna.

 

The guide communicates efficiently with all the guests, we accompany you to climb the monuments to explain the most important details while we are up. We take you to the best angles to take pictures at the right times, this is ideal for photographers.
