Explore the history of the ancient Mayan civilization during this scenic and informative journey to Northern Guatemala's renowned Mayan ruins of Tikal.

Depart the pier for the brief transfer to the airport, and a chartered 1-hour flight to the vast northern region of El Peten. Upon arrival, you will board a coach for the scenic 1-hour drive along rainforest-lined roadways. Along the way, your guide will inform you about the region in preparation for your visit to Tikal, the greatest Mayan city known and studied to date, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Upon reaching the entrance of the 231-square-mile Tikal National Park, you will leave your coach and begin your guided hike along dirt roads and pathways. As you enter the forest surrounding the ruins, your guide will explain the cosmic vision of life at the apex of Mayan rule. After walking approximately 1 mile, you will discover and climb to the top of Temple IV, where expansive views of the park will come into view. You will then continue on to past Temple V before reaching the Great Plaza, which is comprised of Temples I and II, the North Acropolis, Central Acropolis and the Maya royal residential complex, known as the Mahler Palace. Their magnificent architecture is still intact after hundreds of years, and some time will be made available for you to explore the ruins.

Next, you will re-board your coach for the return drive to Santa Elena, and proceed directly to the Maya International Hotel for lunch accompanied by scenic views of Lake Peten Itza and the Island of Flores.

After lunch, you will be transferred to the Mundo Maya airport for your return flight.

Please note: You will spend 3 hours at Tikal National Park, and cover approximately 2.5 miles on foot. Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and comfortable walking shoes, and bring biodegradable sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and sunglasses from the ship. Rain jackets, ponchos and umbrellas are also advised to provide coverage during cloudbursts. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair. A minimum of 12 guests is required to operate this program.
