For the adventurous and spirited, take a journey through dense forests and see the bats of El Zotz in this 3-day tour.
Embark through El Zotz, a Mesoamerican Archaeological site of the pre-Colombian Mayan Civilization, a beautiful protected area with a number of species of bats living in the caves and nearby cliffs. Couples will begin the journey at Cruces and a local guide will prepare the pack horses for a 4-hour trail ride to El Zotz. Couples will travel along windy roads with dense trees and spider monkeys. Trek through the Biotope during the day then that night at camp, observe the thousands of bats leaving their cave dwellings for a night of foraging. Evening dinner is a hearty meal including fresh, hot tortillas prepared by local guides. End the evening by conversing with locals and getting to know their culture.
On the second day, begin with breakfast and explore nearby archaeological sites surveying its plazas and jungle covered mounds. Couples will then proceed to climb the tallest mound, the Devil’s Pyramid, which provides a glimpse of the summits of Tikal temples. On the last day, break camp and head off for the final trek through a dense forest where they will enjoy lunch. Finally, couples will arrive at Temple IV in the west. If they wish to spend the night in Tikal, arrangements can be made.
