What You Can Expect

Tikal Day Trip by Air from Antigua with Lunch

Tikal Day Trip by Air from Antigua

Step back in time as you visit one of the most impressive ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization at Tikal National Park during this 10-hour day trip. Best of all, you’ll get to visit this one-of-a-kind wonder of the world via a flight from Antigua, saving time during your Guatemala adventure.
Begin your trip with a 3:40am pickup from your hotel in Antigua, before proceeding to Guatemala City’s airport for your flight to the town of Flores in northern Guatemala. Upon your arrival in Flores, a pre-arranged vehicle will transfer you to Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal), where you’ll begin your exploration of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage site. Covering an area of 341 square miles (550 sq km), this fascinating Mayan city offers a wealth of structures for exploration.
Check out a number of Tikal’s most important buildings with your guide, including the Central Acropolis, containing a labyrinth of interior temples and courtyards, as well as Complex Q and R, home to twin pyramids and intricate religious complexes at their base. You’ll also have time to admire the giant Temple I, also known as the Temple of the Grand Jaguar. This 144-foot (44m) religious structure was built to commemorate the burial of Mayan King Moon Double Comb. Finish your exploration with a stop at Temple II, which has been dubbed the Temple of the Masks.
Take a break to sample a tasty lunch on the grounds of the national park before getting some time to wander the site at your leisure in the afternoon. Then proceed back to Flores airport to catch your flight back to Guatemala City and transfer back to your Antigua hotel.

A beautiful place! The tour involved about 5 hours of walking. Sometimes rough and uo many stairs on the ruins. Our guide was knowledgable and passionate about his Maya culture. We often hiked off the main roads through paths in the rain forest seeing a wide variety of wildlife. The lunch was good. Bring water, bug spray and a rain jacket. There is a reason it is called the rain forest! The whole experience was well run and a great day trip from Antigua.

If you want the most experience out of the shortest time, this is the perfect day trip. You are very well taken care of from the time you are picked up until you are delivered back to your hotel. Everyone is professional and friendly. Our Tikal guide, Elder, was personable and knowledgeable and obviously cared about Mayan history. He was eager to share his knowledge. If possible, read up on your Mayan history to get the most of your experience here. There is quite a bit of walking on some rough terrain so wear appropriate shoes. Also, if possible, be prepared with mosquito repellent and sun protection. At the first stop on the way to Tikal you will be shown a small cultural exhibit then have a bit of free time to shop. But beware, the prices are very steep, so choose wisely.

This tour was incredible and worth every penny! It and #39;s a long trip but made easier by the friendliness and timeliness of the drivers and plane staff. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Tikal itself was unreal and is a must see. It was great to see Flores too. Highly recommend!!

Trip was awesome!! Only glitch was the weather in Flores delayed departure by 30-40 minutes. the rain cleared out by the time we left in the shuttle. However, due to the delay, we were not able to spend any time in the museum/gift shop. Our guide was very informative and helpful, lunch was quite good, and the weather cleared up and was great the rest of the day with small shower here and there but nothing to dampen our excitement at visiting this amazing place!

A must for any trip, especially first trip, to Guate. Despite unforseen glitches, such as no light in the airport office, the guides and the drivers were punctual, absolutely attentive and very knowledgeable.
Thanks for coordinating such a great experience for us.
