Optional Tour - Tikal (4-5 hours)
There is an option to visit Mayan Temples of Tikal (Guatemala) during the week or we can add a day for you.
There is an extra charge (145 USD pp) and we will need a minimum of 3 participants. 

Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now northern Guatemala. Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. Though monumental architecture at the site dates back as far as the 4th century BC, Tikal reached its apogee during the Classic Period, ca. 200 to 900 AD. During this time, the city dominated much of the Maya region politically, economically, and militarily, while interacting with areas throughout Mesoamerica such as the great metropolis of Teotihuacan in the distant Valley of Mexico.

Tikal is the best understood of any of the large lowland Maya cities, with a long dynastic ruler list, the discovery of the tombs of many of the rulers on this list and the investigation of their monuments, temples and palaces. An early breakfast prepares you for a 'must see' trip to visit the Temples at Tikal in Guatemala. Your English speaking guide will lead you through the 5 major temples built around 700 AD - he dominant features of the city, identified only by numbers. Two of them stand in the middle of the square which can be viewed only from the top of the temple number 2. The top of this temple reaches the height of 38 m. Temple number 1 is not accessible, for safety reasons. The north acropolis stands among these temples. Archaeologists uncovered layers of earth, and thus proved that the Maya had lived here before Christ. The current appearance of the acropolis comes from the 8th century AD. Nowadays, Tikal has become a part of the Tikal National Park , and in 1979 it has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
