Round-trip coach transfers make it possible to visit Tikal on a day trip from Belize without booking a hotel room in Guatemala. After an early departure from San Ignacio, you’ll be on your way to the magnificent Tikal National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with fascinating history. A guided tour of Tikal explores the site’s secrets, then you’ll have time to explore the ancient Maya city on your own.
  • Cross the border to Guatemala with help from the guide
  • Coordinated transport and tour make the most of your time
  • Enjoy a provided lunch within Tikal National Park
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at San Ignacio hotels
