Deep in the heart of the northern Guatemalan jungle, the ancient and city of Tikal hides from plain sight. Claimed by the thick rainforest vegetation during centuries, it wasn’t until a tree gum collector discovered them sometime in the 1800’s. The treasures that this monumental city has given us are magnificent representations of the once powerful Mayan civilization. Come and discover the mystical and fascinating history of this 2,000 year old once ceremonial, cultural and commercial center. Be amazed by the well preserved and superb temples, palaces, ceremonial sites, ball game courts and city squares. The surrounding lush jungle will delight you with its unique cacophony of toucan, parrots, wild turkeys and howler monkey sounds that will add a touch of adventure to the experience. Climb up the highest temple and be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view above the tree tops and the other temple tops poking through the canopy. A sight you won’t soon forget. Experience a magical journey through time in this majestic archeological gem, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
