This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, however, the walk through Tikal National Park is moderately demanding. In order to participate in this extension, travelers should be able to walk at least 1 mile unassisted over uneven terrain and potentially muddy, slippery surfaces, and up and down inclines involving some altitude gain. For adventurous travelers who would like to climb the ruins, please keep in mind that the steps are large and very steep and can be slippery, depending on weather conditions. Those who wish to climb the ruins will need to be in good physical condition with no fear of heights. We will be traveling by boat to our hotel. Travelers must be able to step in and out of the boat onto the dock and climb up and down stairs without assistance, in many cases without railings, and will have the option to zip line, swim and kayak. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high and roads may be bumpy.
Important Information About This Trip
Please see your Pre-departure Briefing for more details.
Since the areas we travel to on this extension are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat’s medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays, to lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation or comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer through Travelex by calling 800-543-8917.
