Flores to Tikal - Independently

Is this an easy trip to make independently, is there a shuttle service type affair from flores and are you allowed to explore the national park without a guide? What are the entrance fees? Xx

There are shuttles but really watch your back with San Juan travel - you can search this forum for warnings about them. You can hire private transport in advance or a taxi on the spot. I believe this is the latest on entrance fees:


You can explore without a guide or hire 1 on the spot. I'm not usually a guided tour sort of gal but I think so highly of guide Roxy Ortiz that I schedule my trips around her availability - not only brilliant but fun to be with.


Happy trails!

The entrance fee stated in tikalpark.com website is up to date for the park but the entrance fee for the museums is now 30Q, not 10Q as stated on the website.

I went with Roxy's tour to Tikal and she was great. Even if you don't go with her, I would strongly suggest you to go with a guide to visit the main attractions and get some background information first. Then you can wander around the park on your own. Unless you do a lot of research on your own before your visit, having a guide with you will definitely help you appreciating the ruin.
