About This Activity

The annual and legendary Triathlon Gran Jaguar, former Hombres De Maiz triathlon, takes place on a scenic, point-to-point course during thanksgiving weekend. It starts on the former Mayan City of Tayazal and, after 56 miles on a one way course bike on the mayan forest, proceeds directly to Tikal National Park. There are two major hills and a few loops as the course follows the magical forest of the former Mayan Civilization cities of Tayazal and Tikal. You finish the last 5 miles running directly besides the ruins and the mayan temples of tikal, with a band of howler monkeys motivating you to cross the finish line. The event also includes a pre-race pasta dinner, expo, and post-race festival complete with live music and a real mayan ceremony. The Gran Jaguar Triathlon is one of the nation’s top races.
