Daily Tour to Tikal National Park from San Ignacio, Belize City

Tikal National Park Tour from Belize

The single most talked about Mayan ruin in Central America is Tikal and it’s a pretty short trip from Belize to Guatemala. Pacz Tours offers safe, all-inclusive, one or two day excursions to Tikal National Park as it is one of the top things to do in Belize.

Pacz Tours’ Tikal Single Day Tour leaves at 7:30am and returns at 5pm. Your tour guide is with you the whole way to fill you in on the history of the area and answer questions. At the border, you will be assisted through all the stamping and fees by your guide. For the next three and a half hours, time will rewind a thousand years. You’ll hear the howler monkeys echoing off the temples and the spider monkeys swinging tree to tree. Tikal is host to toucans, coatimundi and a million other creatures great and small. Ruins will rise before you as they did in the days of antiquity like a stairway to heaven, as you follow in the footsteps of the ancients. After you leave the park, there will be an opportunity to pick up memorabilia, then it’s back to Belize. Your guide will be there once again to ensure a safe and speedy crossing from Guatemala back into Belize.

I HIGHLY recommend you read the reviews and commit to spending the money on touring with Pacz. We did tour tours (Tikal and ATM) as a family of 5 with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. As this was a once in a lifetime trip, we booked a private tour for both. We are still sure it was the best money ever spent!Tikal .... our guide, Hugo, was an expert on Mayan civiliations and the architecture and archeological aspects of Tikal. Crossing the border was easy, and our driver was wonderful. Hugo was informative, friendly, funny, and cheerfully went out of his way to share his love of his country and Tikal. His enthusiasm for his job was endless - and make history come to life! Hugo was able to tailor the trip totally to our family. We stopped by a roadside stand to eat corn tortillas hot off the grill, pulled over to see women washing clothes in the lake, and, of course, made sure we had plenty of breaks for food and coca colas! When in Tikal, Hugo took us through the "hidden paths" of the jungle so we didn't just walk with other tourists, and pointed out animals and plants and their special characteristics (a total bonus for us as we even saw monkeys!). By the end of the day, we all felt like we had gained so much knowledge of Tikal, the Mayans and their way of life. Hugo was an incredible tour guide - and our teens thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humour and his enthusiasm for his work. It was so nice to have a tour guide so passionate and knowledgeable about this field. THANK YOU!

“Enjoyed the Tikal tour”

My boyfriend and I booked Pacz's Tikal tour departing from San Ignacio. Bob from Pacz was very responsive on email when we booked. On the day of, our guide picked us up at 7:30am at our accommodation, which was nice considering we were staying a little out of the way (at a place with a very long, extremely bumpy driveway!)It took our group almost an hour to go get across the border into Guatemala. (The border-crossing fees are covered by the price of the tour.) Then we drove another hour or so to get to Tikal, which was a beautiful drive. Our guide was informative and friendly, and we enjoyed a well-paced tour around the ruins.You'll have to do a bit of climbing to get the good views -- it's nothing too strenuous, but prepared to be sweaty by the end. I was amazed that all the locals wore jeans despite it being a really hot day -- we were dripping by the end! Ooh, and definitely remember to bring sunscreen and bug spray.After the ruins, we got back on the bus and had a late lunch at a local restaurant (again, covered by the price of the tour). The food was relatively basic (fajitas) but tasted divine after all that walking around. On the way back, the border crossing took just over an hour. We were back to our accommodation by 4:30pm.All in all, I would definitely book another trip with Pacz next time I'm in the area. We loved the Tikal trip because it was a great way to get a quick glimpse of another country during our Belize vacation, and it was especially helpful to have a guide along to help navigate the border-crossing process.
