Flores is the gateway to the Mayan World in Guatemala and Dos Mundos Spanish School is the place to book your Mayan adventures. We organize day trips to the two most famous archaeological sites in the region, Tikal and Yaxha, as well as to the lesser-known Mayan sites of Nakum, La Blanca and San Clemente. Furthermore, at our school Dos Mundos we organize special Mayan dinners with informative slide shows about Mayan culture for small or large groups.
For exceptional experiences, we offer two to five-day trips to sites that lie deep within the Guatemalan jungle and are only accessible by foot, such as El Zotz. On their jungle hike, participants learn about local animals and plants. At the sites of La Blanca and San Clemente, they gain comprehensive insight into the detailed operation of a running archaeological excavation project. Our ecotourism aims to support the communities of the villages that lie next to small and rarely visited Mayan sites. Our hope is that once community members realize the importance of "their" sites, they will attempt to protect them from illegal grave-robbers and vandals.
