Tikal is located in the Petén of Guatemala, about 50 miles northwest of the border with Belize. A combination of archaeological remains and the natural environment of the Petén area makes Tikal the only place in the world which has been declared both a Natural and Cultural Heritage for Humanity.

Set in the middle of a jungle canopy, the site today consists of over 3,000 buildings, including a few temples that tower above the forest. At its peak about 1,500 years ago, Tikal was the home for an estimated 100,000 Maya people.

Tikal is not only a great engineering accomplishment of the Maya, but it is one of the jungle splendors of the Petén. The site of Tikal is a national park, where the native flora and fauna still flourish relatively undisturbed. Therefore, in addition to it's numerous well excavated temples and pyramids, Tikal presents an excellent opportunity for animal and bird watching. Along the paths spider monkeys, howler monkeys, gray foxes, red coatis, many other animals are visible to the visitor

During the apogee of the Maya empire, Tikal was the capital city, serving as a center of trade, an architectural style-setter, and the center of power and wealth.

Archaeologists say that three generations of the ruling lords of the great Jaguar clan -- Hasaw Chan K'awil, Yik'in Chan K'awil, and Yax Ain -- built the great temples that reflect Tikal's character and individuality. Some of these temples served as mortuaries, and their contents can give us a glimpse of the richness of life as a lord of Tikal.

We arranged a tour through Clark Tours for a day. It was certainly worth the price.

We suggest getting a hotel in Guatemala and then letting them arrange either a car or a tour of Guatemala. We prefer Clark Tours, who have been in business for over 80 years.

If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Guatemala. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!

La Aurora International Airport (IATA: GUA, ICAO: MGGT) serves Guatemala City, Guatemala. It is located 6 km south of Guatemala City's center and 25 km from Antigua. It is administered by the Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil.

However, here is another option.

The Mundo Maya International Airport (IATA: FRS, ICAO: MGTK), also known as Flores International Airport, is the international airport located in the suburb of Santa Elena, in the city of Flores, Guatemala. It serves national and international air traffic for the areas of Flores, Santa Elena, and San Benito, as well as all the Mayan sites like Tikal or Yaxhá and destinations like Guatemala City, Belize and Cancún.

You could fly into that airport and stay at a nice hotel like the Hotel Camino Real Tikal. You could then let their Concierge Services arrange a tour of Tikal and the Petén area of Guatemala.

Hint: Use the airport code for Flores, Guatemala (FRS) when doing your search and look for Package Vacations..

We have placed a link to Priceline.Com on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Guatemala; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
