A friendly, professional driver will collect you from your Guatemala City hotel and transport you to the local airport where you’ll board a small plane bound for the Guatemalan jungle. Meet your expert guide upon arrival in Flores and head to the famed Mayan ruins of Tikal. This impressive national park spans more than 341 square miles (550 sq km) and is home to thousands of ancient ruins. Your guide will help you navigate through the park and point out major highlights, like the Central Acropolis, maze of courtyards, Temple of the Grand Jaguar and other significant spots. You’ll enjoy a savory lunch with fellow travelers before heading to your hotel for an evening of relaxation and city exploring at your leisure.
After a complimentary breakfast you’ll head out on day two of your Tikal and Yaxha overnight trip by air from Guatemala City and travel southeast to Yaxha. You’ll explore the jungle landscapes with your guide and learn about this notorious Mayan ceremonial site that’s home to some 500 impressive structures. After a bit of exploring you’ll enjoy another tasty lunch with new friends before making your way back to Flores and Guatemala City.
