K’atun Ajaw – Belize Culture Tours

San Ignacio, Belize
About K’atun Ajaw – Belize Culture Tours
Elias Cambranes spent twenty years touring Maya National Parks and Caves in Belize in Guatemala. Working for all the big names in the business and big resorts, he decided to start working for himself twenty years ago. Following the footprints of the Mayan Culture allowed for the name KATUN AJAW “Lord of 20 years”. I have selected the best guides to carry out the tours when I need to stay back. Safety and security is number 1 priority on our tours followed by excellent information and very reliable vehicles. Since the start of KATUN AJAW, in 2007 we have a perfect clean record in safety and reliability…join us in the experience.

You need one whole day for Tikal. We did a similar thing to your plan. If you reach on Wednesday, going to Tikal on Thursday or Friday will be perfect.
