DAY 1 - TEMPLES OF TIKAL - (L,D)
Meet & Greet at Flores Airport and transfer to the Tikal National Park.
Hidden for 1,000 years in the midst of rainforests teeming with wildlife
are enormous ceremonial cities with magnificent Temples and Pyramids built by the mysterious Mayan people. Of the park's 222 square miles
only 10 square miles of central Tikal has been mapped and over 3,000 separate buildings have been revealed: temples, shrines, ceremonial platforms, residences,
ball courts, terraces, causeways and plazas.
THE TEMPLES OF TIKAL in the Peten region
of Guatemala is the most fabulous site of all! Overnight stay at the Jungle Lodge
Hotel or The Tikal Inn, situated in the heart of the Tikal National Park.
Imagine the ceremonies where human sacrifices were offered to the Gods.
Listen carefully and you will hear the still-beating heart of a dying Civilisation . . .
"America, say historians, was
peopled by savages; but savages never reared these structures; savages never carved these stones." John Lloyd
Stephens, Explorer (1839)
