This camping tour in El Zotz ruins is a common hiking trip where you get lost in the jungle.
What will you find in El Zotz? The bat caves: every night, the bats make their grand escape at sunset. 1000s of bats escape the cracks and crevasses to venture into the night sky in search of insects. Follow the steps of the ancient Mayan ruler Siyaj Kak, explore El Zotz archaeological site. In this overnight we do not follow the route to Tikal, we only visit the Zotz.
