Flores and Santa Elena

In the morning you’ll get picked you up at your hotel or airport. To reach the site you’ll hike on a path through the jungle. Most of the terrain is moderately flat, and isn’t too difficult of a hike.

On the way you’ll be surrounded by exotic birdcalls, and most of the hike takes place in the shade. Tikal has a total of 4,000 structures, and your tour will focus on some of the most impressive. You can climb up the stepped face of the temple, although this is an optional activity.

You’ll visit the Great Plaza, where royalty would oversee important ball games. This tour takes visitors to Tikal’s Mundo Perdido, or “Lost World” in English. It includes Temple IV, which is Tikal’s tallest temple. Your guide will also show you around Temples I, II, and III.

After you tour the sites, you’ll have lunch at a restaurant on in the park. Then you’ll visit the Museum of Ceramics, also on the grounds of the site. This museum has exhibits that talk about the site’s historical context.
