Experience a 3 night 4 days tour package to Tikal the largest archaeological site of the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization. Tikal is derived from Yucatec Maya Language. There are thousands of ancient structures at the site and only a fraction of these have been excavated.
The most prominent surviving buildings include six very large pyramids, labeled Temples I – VI, each of which supports a temple structure on their summits. Some of these pyramids are over 60 meters high (200 feet). They were numbered sequentially during the early survey of the site. It is estimated that each of these major temples could have been built in as little as two years, the tallest structure is Temple IV- measuring 70 meters (230 ft) from the plaza floor.
Also take a tour of Barton Creek Cave, a remote cave once used by the ancient Maya as a burial site, yet an attractive caving option to experience it either on Kayaks or a canoe. The site has many cultural remains left by the ancient Maya.
Artifacts, hearths, modified cave formations, and human skeletons were deposited on cave ledges as part of the ritual activities. Our next visit is Green Hills Butterfly Ranch the largest butterfly Ranch and Botanical Collection in Belize. With flocks of butterflies, from brilliant blue to gorgeous orange, dazzling yellow to intriguing gray, fly freely in a 3,300 sq. ft, beautifully landscaped Flight Area. This package has been prepared especially for you to enjoy a bit of nature, including caving and ancient Maya site.
