Colorful, mystical and enchanting, Guatemala’s remarkable diversity invites discovery of its rich archaeological history, stunning natural wonders, and legendary cultural influence. Hike to the top of a volcanoe, cruise across magnificent Lake Atitlan, peruse the handcrafted wares of villagers descended from this area's ancient peoples, and visit sites where the ruins of ancient civilizations may still be seen. This 8-day adventure is slightly less strenuous than our Guatemalan Adventure package. One thing is certain: whatever your pace, your trip to Guatemala is sure to be an unforgettable Lost World Adventure! Moderate activity. No special skills needed.
This morning you will be transferred to Tikal National Park. Tikal is the grandest of all Mayan Ruins, and the stunning beauty of this tropical paradise will leave you breathless.
Climb to the top of the "Temple of the Jaguar" which rises above the jungle. From this vantage point, you may overlook many temples and the main plaza, imagining yourself in the heyday of this thriving ancient city. Your guide will give you an excellent overview of the discoveries made here at Tikal, an insight into the Mayan way of life, and the historical significance of the ruin. You will also encounter many species of birds and the rich flora of tropical hardwoods such as mahogany and teak, along with countless ornamentals and edibles flourishing here. Late this afternoon, you will transfer back to the Flores airport for your flight to Guatemala City. Flight to be advised. Airport reception and transfer to your overnight accommodations at the Guatemala City Marriott.
