El-Zotz-Tikal Jungle Tour

El Zotz – Tikal Jungle Tour

3 Days 2 Nights

A fantastic three-day and two-night community jungle tour, visiting the Protected Biotope El Zotz and Tikal National Park.

With sheer cliffs and a system of internal caves, the mountains possess two of El Zotz’s most impressive features: bats and panoramic views. As the afternoon draws close, thousands of bats leave the caves from inside the mountain, forming dark clouds and filling the air with their screeches and the sound of millions of rapidly beating wings.

This on-site bat show is one of the most impressive Guatemalan wildlife experiences. It gives the site its name “Zotz,” which means “bat” in several Mayan languages, including Itzá.

The walk, which lasts about an hour, passes through the archaeological site called El Diablo. From these sites, located in the highest parts of the mountains, you can enjoy magnificent views of the Petén jungle, including a view of the top of Temple IV of Tikal.
