This spring, Bella Guatemala Travel will be offering the all-inclusive Lost Kingdoms of the Mayas tour, allowing travelers to hike, climb, and explore ancient Maya ruins. The dates available are May 3-14 and June 25 - July 8.  

The Lost Kingdom of the Maya destinations include Tikal National Park, Yaxha, with over 500 structures, Mixco Viejo, with its Aztec and Toltec influences, and Copán, just across the border in Honduras. Additionally, the tour includes a visit via helicopter to the remote El Mirador, where the director of the Mirador Basin Project, Dr. Richard Hansen, will personally lead guests on a tour of the extensive excavation site. Known as the “Cradle of Maya Civilization,” the site is home to La Danta Pyramid, which is among the largest pyramids in the world. 

Archaeology and ecotourism experts lead all Bella Guatemala Tours, and highlights of the tour include jungle trekking and zip lining in Ixpanapajul.
