Tikal National Park Vacations
Guatemala City, the national capital, is situated roughly 190 miles (306 kilometers) to the south of Tikal National Park.
To discover why so many people opt for Peten as a travel destination, ensure you allow some time to hit the road and explore the wider region. Places in the vicinity of Tikal National Park are San Jose Peten, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast, and Santa Elena, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northeast.
Authentic traveling encompasses so much more than simply taking in the sights, it's also about the words, stories and ideas of a place. Your time in Peten will become much more meaningful if you take the time to try some handy phrases and sayings in Spanish. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is a good one to try. In English, it means "Would you like to dance with me?" And, knowing how to say "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything", can make all the difference.
When it is time to depart Peten, you'll be sure to bid this place a fond "Adiós" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be heading home with photos and memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
