Tikal Guatemala - The Mayan Empire

Tikal: “The City of Voices” 2 Days/1 Night/Canopy Tour Adventure

Discover the heart of the Maya World just 30 minutes away from Guatemala City by plane!  Hidden by dense jungle until the 19th century, Tikal reprincipals one of the most breathtaking archaeological sites of the Maya World.  Once one of the largest and most powerful cities of the Classic Period, Tikal was abruptly and mysteriously abandoned over 1000 years ago and disappeared over the centuries into the lush jungle.  Visitors can only get a sense of the power and immensity of Tikal after climbing up Temple IV and looking out over the expansive site to view the distant temples protruding through the canopy as well as overgrown structures yet to released from the jungle’s vines.  On top of the Lost World you will also have a chance to view the other inhabitants of the area, such as the howler and spider monkeys who play in the trees surrounding the temples, or listen to the over 410 species of birds, such as toucans, that bring music to the jungle canopy.  Over 3000 structures have been unearthed from Tikal so far, including temples, palaces, living quarters, ball courts, and a sauna.  There are also many reliefs and stellae that have survived the centuries, all of which reveal the history of this magical city through Maya hieroglyphs – stories about Tikal’s kings, its incredible wealth, and its wars with neighbouring cities.  Archaeologists estimate that the 16 Tikal Guatemala - Tikal National Parksquare kilometers that has been excavated at Tikal is only a fraction of the entire site, leaving many visitors wishing they had more time to explore this ancient and magical city.  There is also a small museum on site with a collection of ceramics, jade, shell and bone jewelry and sculptures.

After wandering through the ancient streets of Tikal and pondering its mysterious abandonment, soar above the jungle with us on our canopy eco-adventure tour.  You will experience the beauty and magic of the rainforest by traversing a series of platforms and cables formerly used exclusively by scientists and photographers.  Watch and listen to the toucans, parrots, lemurs and monkeys playing in the trees while you take in the magnificence of the jungle.
