Tikal National Park

Tikal National Park

The name “Tikal” means “Place of Voices” or “Place of Tongues” in Maya.

The ancient city of Tikal is located in the department of Petén. Tikal was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. Though monumental architecture at the site dates back as far as the 4th century, Tikal reached its apogee during the Classic Piriod ca. 200 to 900 AD. During this time, the city dominated much of the Maya region politically, economically, and militarily. It is our pleasure to take you to one of the most beautiful archaeological sites of Guatemala.
