This activity can be combined with Canopy tour and/or horse riding tour (save money when you book a combo).
If starting from the Canopy tour site at the park entrance, you will be picked up from your hotel in Tikal, and it is a 15 minute drive in the minibus to the Canopy Tour site, located at the entrance to Tikal national park.
When you arrive at the site, you will meet your accompanying guide, who will give you a safety briefing before you start. Then climb onto your bike and start your ride!
If starting from Tikal, you will either be driven out to the 8km marker (8km bike tour), and cycle back to the starting point, or you will cycle from the starting point in Tikal village to the canopy tour site at the park entrance (17km bike tour).
The ride has flat parts and little hills in between, and you get a feel of what a jungle is all about. The earlier or later in the day you go, the more chance you have of spotting monkeys, toucans, parrots, or other birds and wildlife native to the Tikal jungle.
