The ancient Maya began building Tikal around 600 B.C., and for the next 1500 years the area was an important religious, scientific, and political center.

This tour is really about studying and exploring Mayan culture in some of Guatemala’s most beautiful and sacred areas, while celebrating a day shrouded in mystery.

“Studies have been released stating that many the Mayan prophecies have been misinterpreted,” said Adventure Life Operations Director Jonathan Brunger. “This tour is really about studying and exploring Mayan culture in some of Guatemala’s most beautiful and sacred areas, while celebrating a day shrouded in mystery.”

Highlights of this 12-day tour include: Exploring Antigua by mountain bike; visiting the famous market of Chichicastenango, Copan Ruinas, and the village of Santiago Atitlan; boating across Lake Atitlan to the village of San Juan La Lagun; canoeing & horseback riding to a cloud forest; working with small coffee farmers in their daily coffee processing; hiking to remote waterfalls, local hot springs, or surrounding coffee plantations; visiting Tikal's towering pyramids; and camping at the site of Uaxactun, the oldest complete Maya astronomical complex on earth.

“One of this Maya holiday’s most under-emphasized features is the wildlife viewing,” said Brunger. “Howler and spider monkeys, white lipped peccary, brocket deer, coati-mundis, toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, ocelots and the seldom seen jaguar are all prevalent in this part of Guatemala.”
