Enjoy of Tikal in a great way, guided tour through virgin jungle paths, visiting the major archaeological maya buildings, some of them can be climbed as the tallest maya construction: Temple of the Double-Headed Serpent, with 212 feet high. Tikal is cultural and natural UNESCO site. Tikal National Park encompasses 576 square kilometres of jungle and thousands of ruined structures. Tikal grew into an important ceremonial, cultural, and commercial centre over the centuries. Most of the city’s huge temples were constructed during the eighth century AD when Tikal became the greatest city in the Maya world with a population of perhaps 120,000. The Museum of the University of Pennsylvania, the Guatemalan Institute of Anthropology and History restored Tikal’s structures during the 1950s and 1960s. More recently the cooperation of Spain has donated resources to restore some other structures. Today Tikal is to Guatemala what the Great Pyramids are to Egypt, a national symbol and a source of pride in the past. The Temple of the Grand Jaguar (Temple I) and the Temple of the Masks (Temple II) loom like a pair of colossal bookends of opposite sides of the Great Plaza, a vast expanse ringed by terraces, palaces and ball courts.

Yaxha in Small Group (3 to 6 guests)

Yaxha is a different archaeological site because it is located between two lakes, Lake Yaxha and Lake Sacnab, this site started in the Pre-Classic period (3000 BC to 300 AD), during its peak in the Classic period (300 AD to 900 AD) worked as an important lake port. In 900 A.D. when the Mayan collapse happened, for still unexplained reasons, this city was abandoned and the jungle was responsible for burying it with soil, the product of the dried leaves of vegetation over time.   A thousand years later after it was abandoned, a German explorer named Teobert Maler exploring the area, managed to find the lost city of Yaxha in 1904, Yaxha with their neighbors Nakum and Naranjo and after a long process, were declared as Yaxha-Nakum-Naranjo National park in 2006, just after being stage for the reality show called "Survivor" filmed in Guatemala in 2006.   As this is a very young national park, it is little known but super charming, as few archaeological sites, at Yaxha the visitor feels completely in the middle of a Mayan city, because when this was not yet a national park, it was allowed to cut much weeds covering the palaces, temples, ball courts, pyramids, causeways and squares, so the viewer can see more than 900 feet around. Many visitors after visiting several Mayan sites, they conclude that their favorite place is Yaxha.   CONDITIONS The minimum to operate is 3 passengers, if we do not reach the minimum, we will contact you for the following options: A.
