Deep in the rainforest lies one of the most spectacular of all Maya sites in Mesoamerica. Tikal is in the Peten department of Guatemala, about 1.5 hours from Belize's western border. Located within the Maya Biosphere Reserve, the flora and fauna in this area is almost as breathtaking as the Mayan temples themselves.

The original city of Tikal covered an area of 35 square miles.  Although archaeologists have been excavating the site since the 1930's, there is at least another 100 years of work to be done.  On this trip you will visit many of the temples at the site, learn fascinating Mayan history and immerse yourself in a spectacular jungle setting teeming with wildlife.  Note: given the distance, this long tour involves a lot of time in a van.

Overall, great experience! Staff made you feel extremely welcome and tended to your every need. Tours gave you a taste of Belize and the resort gave you a taste of heaven!

Wonderful stay, beautiful surroundings. The staff was unfailingly friendly and accommodating. Adventures were great and well organized!

Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

We appreciate that Hamanasi is able to provide exceptional experience for visitors while working to maintain the wonder of Belize.

This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.

“Golden was an excellent guide for birding, we saw a wide variety of birds”

Wonderful warm staff, excellent guides, variety of inland tours, very comfortable rooms

This was the perfect getaway and reunion with best friends. The access to both Diving and Tours cannot be matched

Just keep doing what you’re doing… The Mayan tour history was incredible; the guide was extremely knowledgeable and profoundly connected to his heritage.
