An added value to Tikal is its wildlife; this national park is ideal for hiking, bird watching and of course photography.

Visit the small island of Flores, the gateway to Tikal Guatemala. This town is located about an hour away from the majestic ruins, and also has a charm of its own, so it's well worth the visit. The island is located in Lake Peten Itza, and it's joined artificially to the mainland.

Also in the Tepen area, Ceibal is another archeological site of importance. This place is best known for its stelae, beautifully carved ceremonial stone pillars, and its circular observatory, the oldest among the Mayan culture. This was a strategic settlement in the old days due to its location in the banks of "La Pasion" River.

They still preserve many of the old traditions, such as music, dance, textiles and craftworks. Also, many Mayan languages are still spoken here.

Do not miss and travel to Chichicastenango's market, in Quiche region. This has been a core of trading activities since Mayan times. Of great interest is also the 400 year old church of "Santo Tomas", still used by Mayan priests for various rituals. This small town in Guatemala is filled with traditions, and for sure will be one of the most colorful parts of your trip!

Travel to the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala , one of the most attractive destinations in the country. Located close to Guatemala City, it lies within three volcanoes, Agua, Fuego and Acatenango.
