About Tikal

Tikal was one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. The site dates back as far as the 4th century and reached its apogee during the Classic Period, ca 200 to 900 AD. During this time the city dominated much of the Maya region.

One of the biggest Classic Maya cities and probably also the main reason most of you are here.  Explore the majestic ruins of Tikal with one of our experienced guides.  Watch over the endless sea of green from thousand year old pyramids. You can almost feel like you’re going back in time.

Unlike most Maya sites, Tikal is unique because temples are scattered over a huge area in the middle of the jungle. Even on a busy day you might suddenly realize you’ve been walking for a while without seeing anyone else. A truly magical experience, just as if you’re the one discovering the temples for the first time!

As you’re watching the sunset, the spider and howler monkeys will be curiously observing you from the treetops. There is a big chance you’ll spot other wildlife too, like toucans, ocelots, wild turkeys, tarantulas,  pisotes and foxes!
