Transportation from Flores to Tikal

Hello, myself and 2 others will be visiting Tikal in a couple weeks. We will be stay in Flores the night before and after. How do we get from Flores to Tikal? How much and how long is travel time? We would like to be there as early as possible. Do we buy Tikal entrance tickets at the gate or do we need to buy them ahead of time?

Once the park closes (i believe at 6pm?) we will be heading back to Flores. Do we go about this the same way as getting there?

Any information would be great! thanks so much

There is auto parking at the park, and you can also park at the three hotels within the park if you are staying there.

Hi Kyleandy,

Did you ever end up renting a car? I’m travelling with my husband and 2 kids to the area in a few months. I’m weighing out which options may be better. Would love to know how it went for you.

Hi, it seems that no one answered about the car rental..

I am going for two days and I wonder what are the car rental logistics?

I rather rent than depend on transportation.

Hotels in Tikal, which ones are these?
