    Tikal National Park is located in northern Guatemala, between the municipalities of Flores and San José, Petén. The park is open daily from 7 AM to 6 PM every day of the week, 365 days a year, the fee is Q. 50 for foreigners, an additional Q. 20 fee is necessary to visit the museum, it is 60 paved Km. away from the Flores city area, and there are several options to go there from Flores. The buses start departing Flores at 5 AM, and initiate the return at 2 PM each half hour, charging Q 60 for the round trip.
    If you prefer to stay more than the day, and experience the unique sunset and the jungle and bright night skies in Tikal, there are Tikal Hotels in the Park. (Electricity will go out at 10 PM). You can visit Tikal ruins by yourself. Links that you might want to look at Things To Do In Guatemala and Guatemala Holidays one more Flights To Guatemala.
    Enjoy it there it`s a magical place to see.
    Take care
