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.
