It is a very dynamic tour and full of real stories and also legends is something that makes it much more interesting in this tour we also visit areas where normally the tourist who visits without a guide cannot go to see how paintings and masks in secret areas there are also many possibilities to observe wild animals, I like to use trails where there are fewer people as in the more wooded areas at the same time it is much more enjoyed the route is unique we take all the time necessary

4-Day Maya Trek To 3 Archeological Sites From Flores: Uaxactún + Tikal + El Zotz

4-Day Maya Trek To 3 Archeological Sites From Flores: Uaxactún + Tikal + El Zotz

In the era where the ancient Mayans lived and ruled the lands of Petén, there were different kingdoms. Each with its own kings, policies, and peoples under their power. The cities of Uaxactún, El Zotz, and Tikal were independent of one another, but in the Classic Period, Tikal had its peak of power and conquered the other two cities. For many centuries the Mayans inhabited this region before its collapse at the end of the Classic period due to the abuse of their natural resources, caused by the cutting and burning of the forests to create large buildings such as the pyramids and palaces that we see nowadays. To visit these ancient Mayan cities walking through the jungle, you will need the help of the locals and an agency who takes care of all the details for you. Please make sure to book this experience at least 7 days before the day of traveling as we need to prepare and organize everything for your visit. We want to make this time as pleasant and unique as possible.

4 Hours Private Tour to see the sunset at El Rey Canek Viewpoint

4 Hours Private Tour to see the sunset at El Rey Canek Viewpoint

As you may know, the Mayan civilization occupied the land from the south of Mexico to all Guatemala and part of Belize and Honduras. The kings of all cities wanted to leave a legacy, that is why we find pyramids, temples, stelae, and other forms of leaving a mark through time. We know that the immense Mayan cities of Tikal and El Mirador are the most popular in the area of Peten, however, we find other small cities around, such as Tayasal, where El Mirador del Rey Canek is located. This is one of the last Mayan kingdoms to be conquered by the Spaniards in the year 1697. By that moment, the city of Tayasal was already full of vegetation, so the Spaniards didn´t know about it. The existence of the city was officially reported until 1965, and new discoveries have been made since then. There is no doubt that you will enjoy this tour from beginning to end. You will be surrounded by nature, Mayan information, stunning views from El Mirador del Rey Canek, and mesmerizing sunset.
