Ruins of Tikal Extension

Explore legendary Mayan ruins amid the dense cover of tropical jungle
Discover the ancient civilization of the Maya on this archaeology and nature adventure into the Guatemalan rainforest. Established as far back as 2000 BC, Mayan cities reached their highest state of development from 250 to 900 AD, making great advances in art, architecture, mathematics and astronomy, and producing the only fully developed written language in the pre-Columbian Americas. El Peten, the largest tropical forest in Central America, is the heartland of the Maya, containing extensive ruins. The crown jewel is Tikal, a sprawling complex of more than 3,000 structures. Countless additional ruins still lie shrouded by dense jungle overgrowth where tapirs, peccararies and jaguars roam, just as they did when the Maya ruled the region.

Trip Highlights

  • Explore the vast ruins of Tikal, grandest of ancient Mayan cities, on a expertly guided tour
  • Witness archaeological work in progress at Yaxha as Mayan ruins are excavated and restored
  • Search for jungle wildlife and tropical birds in El Peten, Central America's largest rainforest
