Tikal Sunset Tour

The landscape surrounding Tikal changes dramatically as the sun begins to set. This tour lets you see the beginnings of the evening creep in, as nocturnal animals begin their daily routines, between 6 and 8 pm. Best of all, the angle of the setting sun illuminates parts of the canopy that you can’t fully appreciate during full daylight.

Take this tour to see Tikal at one of the busiest times of day — early in the morning. You’ll leave for your tour before the sun comes up, and then watch the jungle wake up from the top of one of the site’s temples. Bring a flashlight so you can see the nocturnal animals when you first arrive in the jungle. This time of day comes with another advantage, as the site has fewer visitors at this time of day.
