4-Day Maya Trek To 3 Archeological Sites From Flores: Uaxactún + Tikal + El Zotz

4-Day Maya Trek To 3 Archeological Sites From Flores: Uaxactún + Tikal + El Zotz

In the era where the ancient Mayans lived and ruled the lands of Petén, there were different kingdoms. Each with its own kings, policies, and peoples under their power. The cities of Uaxactún, El Zotz, and Tikal were independent of one another, but in the Classic Period, Tikal had its peak of power and conquered the other two cities. For many centuries the Mayans inhabited this region before its collapse at the end of the Classic period due to the abuse of their natural resources, caused by the cutting and burning of the forests to create large buildings such as the pyramids and palaces that we see nowadays. To visit these ancient Mayan cities walking through the jungle, you will need the help of the locals and an agency who takes care of all the details for you. Please make sure to book this experience at least 7 days before the day of traveling as we need to prepare and organize everything for your visit. We want to make this time as pleasant and unique as possible.
